Hello! Nadine here again today to share with you on how to use products from the CropStop Shop in creating a mixed media card. One thing I love to do is getting messy when crafting (not so excited about cleaning up afterward though…lol) and the CropStop Shop has so many fun products I can make a beautiful mess with.
See how I used several of the CropStop’s fun products in creating this mixed media card and make sure to check out the bottom of this post for an awesome giveaway.
On a piece of kraft cardstock I sewed, distressed and inked the edges. I then spread some Prima Art Extravangance Texture Paste in Platinum Crackle with a spatula. To create some fun and unique texture within the paste, I used the Ranger Texture Tools. I love the shimmer that the Platinum Crackle paste gives!
Using the Prima Art Basics Heavy Gesso in White and the Alphabet Border Stencil by Dyan Reaveley’s Dylusions, I created more texture and designs onto my papers. The thickness of the Heavy Gesso is perfect to use with stencils because it does not run under the stencil so you can get a crisp, clean pattern.
To finish off my card I used some Petaloo Burlap Small Sunflowers and sprayed them with some Tim Holtz Distress Spray Stain in Fossilized Amber, I also sprayed some cheese cloth. After using some Burlap String in Antique Gold and other embellishments, I randomly painted more of the Heavy Gesso over the flowers and the other embellishments to complete my card.
I hope you enjoyed my mixed media card, and it inspires you into creating a mixed card yourself. Be sure to check out the CropStop shop to find all the supplies to create this project and so much more!
