Enhance and Embellish with Tear Drops

Hi Everyone!  It's Danie here today!  Hasn't this year so far gone by so fast.  I blinked and the past weekend was gone.  I am today (it's Monday Morning already here in Australia) enjoying a few hours home alone for the first time since last December as School has resumed.  So apart from doing some washing I am looking forward to some time in my craft room without disturbance.

I have said it before and will say it again!  I love Dew Drops from The Robin's Nest,  As well as the half pearl shape, the Robin's Nest Range includes both Tear Drops and Diamond Shapes.

I have used the Tear Drops for enhancing my stamped designs, and embellishing the three cards I have made to share with you today.

If you haven't already done so I want to urge to try them and now is the perfect time to do so as for the entire month of February you can Save 20% off all Tear Drops with the current Robin's Nest Promotion.

The Tear Drop shape makes perfect flowers by using them as petals, but I have gone one step further and used them to enhance my stamped flower design after I colored it in.  They are perfect for adding dimension and texture to your projects.  This card also incorporates Dew Drops to highlight my doodles between the flowers.

     







Supplies Used

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. 


You can also use them together to make buttons to embellish other stamped designs and add a pop of color.

Orange and Light Blue Tear Drops and Turquoise Dew Drops also from the Robin's Nest.

Plus they are perfect to incorporate into entry for any of this Month's Design Challenges.  Here's my simple take on February's Card Sketch using some of the left overs from my previous card.
