Life's Little things : Kaisercraft

Hi Friends,

As an Introvert my daily routine hasn't changed much! Working in isolation and maintaining a social distance has been a Lifestyle. It can be overwhelming for some to stay home during this Covid-19 Pandemic. Go back to what you love to do. Rearrange your interiors. Spend time with your Family and learn new art.

Idea of this CAS card born when am shifting my Pothos plants from balcony today, as our part of India is experiencing peak summer.

My Mom is a Plant Nerd and she maintained a huge garden in our Home. I grew up seeing her do rose stem grafting, collecting and sowing seeds, preparing soil beds for our Rose plants. My deep interest on Gardening is what my Momma sow in me and it continues to grow well here.

Over to my card for Today,

  • Took watercolor cardstock and sponged Antique Linen DI around leaving a central portion.
  • Then stamped a text stamp from HNDMD Old Newspaper stamp on the background on the edges randomly to give a subtle texture using Antique linen DI.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Kaisercraft Blue Bay (new in my stashusing Memento Tuxedo black ink.
  • Started to stamp the leaf twig from Uniko Just because stampset (new in my stash) using Peeled Paint DO on the lower half of the panel around the sentiment.
  • Liberally splashed same waterdowned DO splatters on the card over the leaves.
  • Added three clear dew droplets for the visual interest.
  • Trimmed a bit and added this to A2 sized top fold black card base.
Hope you like this card!

Thanks for stopping by!

Adore this Sathya and love it comes from your Mum's love of gardening. The sentiment is so perfect that I love the way you have made it the centre stage and softly built the card around it-the leaves are so subtle along with the splashes and such lovely use of colour. Great to see you at Time Out and CASology x

I can definitely relate to the daily routing not changing much as a fellow introvert - but I do miss seeing my coworkers face to face :) Your card is so lovely - the combo of soft greenery framing that wonderful sentiment is absolutely perfect. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Jill

It's a blessing to live in a place where you are able to have a flower or vegetable garden and how wonderful that you experienced this joy as a child watching your mother! Your card is beautifully designed around that wonderful sediment, Sathya! Keep well! Hugs, Darnell
