Welcome back to the Cropstop Blog for another post by our talented guest designer, Stephanie Wright (of Sasha Belle Designs). Stephanie went over and above this week, creating a set of four beautiful cards to showcase Cropstop products.
Here’s what she has to say about putting this beautiful set together: “For today’s project, I decided to make a set of cards. Instead of making each card in the set match exactly, I chose to make them coordinate by using the same card design and patterned papers from the same company (all but one of the papers are even from the same 6×6 pad). Black cardstock (Recollections) was used for matting to also help tie the set design together. I had some 3 x 4 pre-printed water color panels that I water colored using Distress Pads – and markers. For the inks, I smooshed them on my craft sheet and then spritzed them with water using a Mini Mister to make the “paint.” I used a small paintbrush to apply the color to the image. For the distress markers, I colored right on the panel and then moved the color around with a brush and plain water. After they dried, I stamped sentiments on three of them with Versafine ink (Tsukineko) and the added some Wink of Stella (Zig) for a little shimmer.”
