Hello friends ~ I'm so happy to be guest designing for Crop Stop Blog today. Thanks so much Esther, for this fun opportunity!
I chose to do a little collage style card using lots of wonderful products found in the Crop Stop store.
I started by doing some ink blending for the background using Distress Oxide Inks in Fossilized Amber, Broken China and Wilted Violet, spritzing it with water mixed with a tsp. of bleach, as I continued to add color. I just love the mottled look it creates.
I cut the panel using an Elizabeth Craft Design Stitched Rectangle and then sponged more Frayed Burlap around the outside edges.
I used Poppystamps Delicate Dogwood to cut one out of a scrap of background paper I had created previously that was left sitting on my table and one out of black cardstock. I also cut the Elizabeth Craft Designs Small Butterfly out of the same.
I adhered the flowers on to the front of the card using Glossy Accents, shadowing the flower with the black die cut. I layered the butterfly and added Black Diamond Stickles to the body.
The sentiment from Altenew's Fresh Freesia was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed using white embossing powder onto a scrap of black cardstock. I raised it up just a tad by running a piece of chipboard that was cut slightly smaller than the sentiment strip and running it through my Xyron sticker maker.
I hope you'll take a jaunt over to the Crop Stop blog and say hello to Esther. While you're there be sure to visit the Crop Stop Shop to see what's new!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Blessings~ Birgit
