CASology Week 290: ABSTRACT

Welcome to Week 290 at CASology!

I predict an interesting mix of abstract concepts and abstract art ideas in the gallery this week. I immediately thought of abstract color field paintings like those of Mark Rothko when I first saw the cue word this week.

Playing around with an acrylic stamping block, swipes of Distress Oxide Inks and spritzes of water gave me this trio of colors on a watercolor paper panel.

A simple MFT sentiment was stamped under the color block and the panel was popped up on a Berry Sorbet card base.

The design team has a great mix of cards to inspire you this week!

We are looking forward to seeing how ABSTRACT inspires you - just remember to keep it Clean & Simple! You have until 9 AM Monday (CMT) to link your card to the CASology blog.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. I love this look. The rainbow of colors is just fabulous for the focal image. Nothing more is needed. And, the sentiment added below does not take away from the beauty of it either.

  2. I so agree with Verna, nothing more is needed, when you have those gorgeous, vibrant colors!!

  3. What a beautiful effect you got with the inks and water.
    Really eye catching design.

  4. Beautiful card! Love this technique! Great color choices!


It makes my day when you take time to comment - thank you!
