Post 300: CAS Diwali Card (fish)

Hi friends!!

I'd like to share a Clean & Simple Diwali Card. This was part of my DT work for Peek-a-boo designs, all the details are here. This is an A2 sized, top folding card.


- Die cut white cardstock using the stitched scalloped rectangle die. Then colored the scalloped frame with Fossilized Amber & Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxides
- On the card base, masked off the edges and applied distress oxides through the Dimensional Stencil
- Stamped the beautiful fish from the new Madhubani Stamp on Canson Watercolor paper & watercolored it in with zig markers, then fussy cut it.
- Stamped the sentiment from the Diwali Greetings Stamp set onto a strip of watercolor paper & then colored in the strip with zigs and an aqua brush.
- To assemble the card, adhered the frame at a tilted angle onto the cardbase, also adhered the sentiment strip within the frame and then foam mounted the fish in the center, to add texture added a few gold strings under the fish to make it pop.
- In the end, adhered a few gold colored sequins for some sparkle

Here is a photo of the card:

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS #121- The PABD Madhubani Stamp is my new favourite and I've stamped the fish from it

  6. What a gorgeous card!! I love the monochromatic colours and how much the yellow pops against all the white background. The gold thread behind the fish is such a fabulous detail, might have to try that myself. Such a beautiful card, I'm so glad you shared it with us at Happy Little Stampers!
