Have you had a chance to try out the new Dewlets? Those little metal dies match perfectly with the size and shape of Dew Drops ink pads, providing you new possibilities for creative use of your favorite ink pads. Just stamp and die-cut a pile of drops in your favorite colors, and let the fun begin: You’ll be surprised how many different shapes you can make out of them! In this project, I created a spring theme flower card.
Time: 1 hour
Press the DewDrop ink pad on paper to create a drop shaped stamped image. The white paper will replicate the ink color as it is, but you can create exciting variations by using colored and/or patterned papers. Die-cut the drop images with a die-cutting machine, using Dewlets dies.
Highlight the drop edges by painting them with a darker ink and a water brush. Let dry.
Layer background paper(s) on a white card base using two-sided tape or glue.
Assemble flowers. Cut flower stems from green paper. Glue on paper together with the flowers. Finish the project by decorating the flowers and leaves with a white gel pen. Optional: Add more contrast and shadowing with coloring pencils. Do not color the entire die-cut drop, but only add a hint of a darker shade on the edges.
