A personalised CAS

I really enjoy making crafty stuff with strong messages. Here is a card for a very close friend who is a stylist by profession.


I wanted to experiment with paint and layer technique that is to first ink/ watercolor the paper and then to randomly doodle/ sketch to cut out shapes. This method gives you lots of scope to experiment with colors and shapes, plus if you are like me and don’t plan to the T when it comes to craft projects, this one is great!


I was inspired by this picture by runwayinspired


To implement these colors, I started randomly dabbing shades of peach, red and pink. I doodled various shapes (flowers are such a great element to play with) . I used a blue pastel as I wanted an edgy outline which would not be the case with a marker. I cut out rims of these shapes and overlapped these shapes to make a flower. I have not stuck the complete shape but rates only a certain portion such that colors are seen through and through and are different from every angle.



For the face, I simple glued a yellow stretch of wool. The picture (my inspiration) also had a mirror. So, I also stuck two round mirror embellishments which serve as earrings iif you want to look at it that way.
