CASology 206 - Art


This week's CASology Cue Card is Art!



I went all out and decided to make my own "art", complete in a fancy gold frame, hanging on an all-white (of course!) 'wall'!

I used Zig markers to make my tiny watercolour painting. I started by swiping a strip of green across the bottom for the ground. I placed a number of dots of various colours and sizes and then added water to them to expand them. When it was dry, I added dark grey centres and green stems and leaves. I think they look like poppies.

I used a Papertrey Ink die to create the canvas and the frame.

I finished with a partial sentiment from Neat & Tangled Scandinavian Prints. I will also link this up to Day 8 of @thedailymarker30day colouring challenge.

Now it's your turn. In my opinion ALL the cards we make are art, and I can't wait to see how you interpret this fun cue card!

Be sure to check out the rest of the DT for more inspiration:
