Card Using Prima and Frank Garcia's French Riviera

Prima and Frank Garcia's French Riviera Collection 

I love the earthy elegance of Prima's French Riviera Collection by Frank Garcia.  That's what makes the collection so versatile.  

I whipped up a quick card featuring some of my favorite products as focal points.  I grabbed the fun Prima IOD mould clock shape, the Prima IOD clay and Frank's amazing Artisan Powders.   The richness of the Artisan Powders accents the warmth of the paper.  

 The clock centerpiece was created using  Prima Iron Orchid - Vintage Art Decor  Moulds - Baroque  6 and Prima's IOD paper clay.  It's an interesting and fun product that requires no baking.  I prefer to let my clay shapes dry overnight before I add any finishing treatments. 

Once the clay mould dried, I mixed the Artisan Powers with a bit of water and painted the clock with the powders.  Then I misted with the Prima Color Bloom mist in Antique Gold to give a golden sheen.  

The darling  metal marine ship wheel is from Flying Unicorns  Metal Adornment collections - Sea Merchant.   A perfect sweet little topper. 

Another fun element on the card is the  2Crafty "Element Set 2" chipboard I selected to go under the clay clock mould.  The chipboard pieces are divine for cards.  I used two of them together here and topped with a clay moulded clock.  These were inked with Distress ink in Walnut Ink, and then misted with Prima's Antique Gold Color Bloom Mist.   They have a gorgeous golden sheen in real life.

The last few finishing elements are the flowers and a brad from the French Riviera collection.
