Coloring Dew Drops CAS Card by Melinda

Hello crafty friends,
Melinda here with you today and it is my turn to share. I created this very clean looking card.
My card is a finished A2 size. I started with a white base. It is a top folding card. I then cut a piece of Emerald Green Bazzil Bling cardstock for a mat.

I then used my Pazzles Craft Cutter to create my flower pattern. I cut the mat out and then laid it onto a matching white piece of cardstock and used my pencil to draw the outline of the flowers. I then proceeded to use my Spectrum Noir Water Color Pencils to color the flowers. I purposely colored them beyond the “line” as I knew I was going to be adding foam tape for dimension. I didn’t want the top flower cuts to cause the color underneath to be inconsistent with the pattern.

I then used an embossing folder to add the soft swirls you see in the background. To really make the flowers stand out, I added a larger sequins to the center and then used 3 dew drops for the centers. I wanted them to match the color of the flowers as closely as possible. So I colored them!
marker color
Here’s a look at the dew drop that I colored with my blue violet Copic marker. I started with a clear dew drop and then colored it. It isn’t a perfectly smooth finish, but you can wait for the marker to dry and then dab here and there to get a more fully colored look.
marker yellow
Here’s a look at the yellow version.  I also did a third one with an orange marker. I love that this allows me to really match the dew drop to my project.
sentiment
I finished off the card by adding a sentiment I created on my computer and cut out with my scallop stitched oval die cut. I then added a few small drops of some Nuvo Crystal drops to add just a bit more to the card.
