Here's a CAS or probably nearly CAS card I have made.
I thought it was fun to take up the watercolor challenge theme.. I have used the "watercolor & SALT technique" for the bg.. so here's the card
If you're interested in the steps, read on.. have included some digital remix tips at the end :)
To begin with I cut a 4"×3" watercolor paper from "Tulip artist sketch pad"
Applied water over it with plain brush followed by colors.. I used uniball POLSCA marker sky blue & Faber castell magenta fabric colour.
While the colors are still wet, I spread fine table salt in the lower half & coarse sea salt to the upper half of the paper. I let it air dry completely & gently brushed off the salt. The texture is amazing & I totally love the rough granular look of the paper. different textures form in the areas of two types of salt..!!!
For the edges I used burnt sienna fabric color. BG is now ready.
I stamped the bee, flowers & tools, colored them with marker & acrylic colors & cut out leaving a white border around to make them look like stickers.
I made the banner by cutting out a vintage tag washi tape, coloring lightly with marker & writing my sentiment. I cut out a small flower from red paper to match it. I pierced a hole in the tag & attached a pink thread.
I stuck the flowers flat, tools, bee with foam for dimension. I also stamped some grass. Now the fun part. I marked a trail from the bee, pierced holes on it & sewed the thread from the tag through them, taping the other end at the back of the card. I pasted the tag to the bg (I messed up using glue runner at the tips)
I gave regular cuts at the top of the paper & folded them back & forth to give a notepad effect.
I wound a pink thread around the paper & made a bow gluing the edges.
I cut a 9"×5" cardstock, folded in half to make the cardbase. I stuck the theme paper with foam squares at a slightly tilted angle.. first I thought of having a white base but since I wasn't satisfied with that, I sponge dabbed some blue on the outer edges as well.
Finally, I gave a thick layer of fevicryl Fabric glue (dint hav glossy accents but it worked perfectly fine too) over the little sticker parts & let it dry. not sure if it's visible in the snaps..
Hope you liked it. !
Tips & Tricks
There are umpteen number of possibilities when you take up something digitally. Here's what I have done to my card.
I took the photograph without the banner, added some bee trail & a different sentiment digitally. (Actually I like this better :P) I used spray tool for the edges & made it blue too.. This gives a much simpler & subtle look than my original card.
How did you like the little digital twist up there?! Cheers.
Create. Have fun
