Gratitude : CAS card

Hi Crafty peeps,

This time it's a non floral card and playing with Brushos is my most favorite one among the techniques.
Absolutely love the way the color bursts and reacts with water and gives an abstract/organic look. 

  • Took a non-watercolor cardstock this time, and played with Brushos - Yellow and bit of Crimson crystals.
  • Both mixed up to give an awesome abstract look on the card.
  • Stamped the sentiment from Stamplorations 'Art is' stampset on the card panel.
  • Then onto the vellum, white heat embossed small butterflies from Stamplorations Trendy butterflies-2 stampset.
  • Added the fussy cut vellum butterflies to the card panel.
  • Matted this over the white top fold 4x6" card base and few clear dew droplets to finish off the card.
Hope you like it!
Thanks for stopping by!

You are a Treasure : SSS

Hiya Friends,

Been coloring this Beautiful flower stamps from SSS for the past 4 days for Kathyrac's Daily marker coloring challenge. Check my insta handle @sathyakala.23 for the WIP pics.

Made a card with loads of white paint splattered background.

Over to my card,

  • Stamped SSS Beautiful flowers stamp over a watercolor paper using Antique Linen DI for the Noline coloring.
  • WaterColored using Daniel smith watercolors and topped it with Prisma colored pencils for keeping the shadows.
  • The image is fussy cut and splashed with loads of watercolored white acrylic paint and Perfect pearls for the shimmery effect.

  • Then splattered with perfect pearls mixed with pink, watered down white paints for the hazy bg effect.
