CASology 159 – Aquatic

Hello everyone!!  It’s CASology Tuesday!!  We are back with another Cue Card for you!!!

This week’s cue card is all about water and anything pertaining to water!!

Week 159 - Aquatic

 

Take a look at my card:

Sail away with me (CAS)

Here is how I created this card:

This is a simple one layer card.  I stamped the waves three times, slight on top of each other. Then I stamped the boat right on top of the waves.  I used Copic marker R27 to color in the bottom portion of my boat.

I stamped the main sentiment first then the smaller sentiment last.

That was it!!  A nice card to reproduce!!

Now its your turn!! I can’t wait to see what you come up with!

Hello everyone!! I’m here with So Suzy Stamps and our August Challenge!!

  Perfect for our new challenge this month which is Under the Sea!!

Under the Sea

Check out my card:

Happiness is (SoSS)

 Isn’t that little octopus the cutest you’ve seen!!  I must tell you I colored him a couple of times with different mediums until I settled on this guy.  I colored him with my Copic Markers and Wink of Stella!!

I fussy cut him out and adhered him to my cut out Stitched Party Banners from Lawn Fawn.  I used all of the dies in that set to create my card.  I added some orange bakers twine between the big banner and the small banner.

To finish the card off, I added Your Next Stamp Crystal Clear Gumdrops.

So what do you thing?  Please let me know below!!

Are You A Watercolorists?

Watercolor painting is an art form that creates artistic representations, usually on watercolor paper, using pigments that are water-soluble.

OK, I love the wording “artistic representation” because I can’t draw for the life of me and I also have trouble actually painting objects much less making my sentiment look like I painted it.  I’m so glad that my cards are beautiful regardless if I can’t draw or paint.  Thank you “artistic representation”!!

With that said, I created two cards today for my online Watercolor for Card Makers Class Homework.  The assignment was to watercolor paint over a stamped image.  This was fun!  My daughter, niece and I sat down to create our cards.  It’s amazing how all of us came up with different versions of the same image.

I made two cards because I felt like my first flower was dulled out and wanted to see if I could use a different flower.  Also, my sentiment was giving me so trouble.  Here are my “artistic representation” of flowers in a vase!

Made with Love

On my first card, the blue water started to seep out of my jar on the side.  I went to close to the black line with my wet paint brush.  I over did it a little with the shadow at the bottom of the jar.  You have to learn from your mistakes.

Made with Love2

This second card, the water stayed in the jar and my shadow looks so much better.  The sentiment is where I think I over did it.  That’s the beauty of water-coloring.

So what do you think?  Did I do a good job at depicting a watercolor painting?  Would you call me a Watercolorists?

Well in my book, I’m the best Watercolorists on this side of the computer screen, lol!!!!

The real test is how do I compare to my daughter and niece!!  Below you will find the cards they painted.

What fun!!!

Well that’s it for today.  I hope you enjoyed our cards today and will not hesitate to try water-coloring and become a Watercolorists!!
