I have a Pop Art card that I made for MFT 2018 Card Design Superstar – Coloring Virtuoso
Do you know what Pop Art is? I am always awed by pop art drawings.
Citing Wikipedia :
Pop art is an art movement that emerged in Britain and the United States during the mid- to late-1950s.
The movement presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular and mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects.
One of its aims is to use images of popular (as opposed to elitist) culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any culture, most often through the use of irony.
It is also associated with the artists’ use of mechanical means of reproduction or rendering techniques. In pop art, material is sometimes visually removed from its known context, isolated, or combined with unrelated material.
For my card, I was inspired by Andy Warhol’s pop art drawings.
I used the pineapple stamp image from the BB Polynesian Paradise stamp set by My Favorite Things (MFT).
I first divided my panel into nine equal squares.
I then stamped the image nine times using my Misti and colored it with brush pens.
The sentiment is also from the same set.
I then stuck my panel on an A2 card base.
I took an unnecessary long time deciding the position of the sentiment. Whether to stamp in the middle or in the right!
Does this happen to you too? If the answer is yes, then we can safely say that “Great minds think alike”😉.
I have wanted to make a pop art card since a long time.
I love the contrasting effect that the various colors are having on the eyes. Hope I did justice to this card.
Do let me know your thoughts in the comments.
Thank you for stopping by… Have a great day ahead!
