Embellishing with Tear Drops Take 2 - A Tutorial.

Following on from yesterday's post using Tear Drops from the Robin's Nest, they make wonderful flower petals, and today I have taken this idea one step further and used them to enhance/embellish my stamped flower design.



I randomly stamped with Black Archival Ink my chosen flower which perfectly matched the size of my Tear Drops  (Ippity - Friends + Flowers = Priceless Set by Unity) over a piece of white cardstock which was cut to the size of my card front.

I then took my Big Brush Stampers Pens from Faber Castell (Deep Scarlet Red #219, Cadmium Yellow #107 & Cobalt Blue #143) and colored in the petals of each flower.

With a Fine Black Sharpie Pen I doodled small squiggly scrolls between the flowers.



Taking some of the Robin's Nest Tear Drops in matching Colors to my Big Brush Stampers Pens I glued these to one stamped flower of each color and added a Neutral toned Dew Drop to each of my doodled scrolls.  Both the Tear Drops and Dew Drops are transparent so you can see the design through them.

I rounded the corners on one side of my stamped card front and then added a piece of orange ribbon down the other.  I then layered this onto a piece of Mango Cardstock and my Black Card Base, both of which are also from the Robin's Nest.

Supplies Used
Stamps from the Ippity - Friends + Flowers = Priceless Set by Unity
Black and Mango Cardstock from the Robin's Nest
Red, Yellow and Blue Tear Drops and Beige Dew Drops also from the Robin's Nest.
Orange Ribbon, Big Brush Stamper Pens, Black Sharpie Pen, Black Archival Ink and
White Cardstock all from my own stash. 




And there you have it a quick and rather easy card, which is bright and colorful and has lots of dimension and interest thanks to the Tear Drops and Dew Drops from the Robin's Nest.
