CAS card : Canvas

Hi All,

Am back here with a non-floral card for today. CAS : Clean and Simple cards are not my forte as this heart loves all layered, textured stuffs more. I admire CAS artists a lot and their aesthetic way of playing with stamps, stencils, dies yet making the card look Fabulous with loads of white spaces.

My Mom is an Oil painting artist and my second half of name 'Kala" refers to 'Art' in my Indian regional language. Learnt Music and Dance from my childhood yet 'Art' always reminds me of the colorful splatters of inks, paints, brushes.

Over to my card,

  • Took a 4x6" white cardbase and using Mudra World stencil, dry embossed it.
  • Love the subtle embossed bg of world map.
  • Using Kaisercraft stains stamps, (Brand new in my stash) stamped the splatters using various Altenew inks.
  • In a canvas sheet, stamped the sentiment from Stamplorations 'Art is' stampset using Memento Tuxedo black ink.
  • Cut the sheet around the sentiment and frayed the edges for an added interest. 
  • No embellishments added to keep the focus on dry embossed bg and the sentiment.
Hope you like it!

Thanks for stopping by!

This is really creative and so cool that part of your Mum's name is ART and she was a painter! I really love all the texture you got in here. That subtle embossed background is perfect plus the canvas for the sentiment-works so well with that sentiment. And yah to the splashes....see you can so CAS! Thanks for joining Time Out x

WOW, Sathya, this is filled with lots of interest for the eyes to love! That background world embossed behind the colorful ink splatters is genius! And that canvas sediment with the frayed edges adds so much dimension and texture! You should do CAS more often! Take care and keep safe and thank you for sharing with everyone at NBUS! Hugs, Darnell
