Watercolor Panel Card Set



Today is my last project as a Guest Designer for the Crop Stop Blog. 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 6x6 pad). Black cardstock 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 inks 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 and the added some Wink of Stella for a little shimmer. Below are closeups of each card.



 The golden yellow strip is from the Basic Gray Urban Luxe 6x6 paper pad. It also uses a coordinating embossing folder and embossing border folder from Anna Giffin.

You've done a fabulous job with your Guest Designer spot at CropStop, Steph. Your cards and tutorials are always wonderful. I hope you enjoyed this.

Also, thank you for taking care of things for me at WAW this week. I wouldn't have enjoyed my trip nearly as much if I hadn't known I could count on you. I'm so grateful.

God bless you, my friend.
Karen
