Dew Dancer Canvas

Hello everyone! Jenn here sharing my "Dew Dancer" Dew Drops Creative Canvas.

These are a new kit by The Robin's Nest that include everything needed!
Includes pre-printed canvas, Dew Drops, and a color picture of what how you could create your masterpiece.  Mount to a frame or glue to a hard surface.  A great mixed media treasure.  Available in small (5” x 7”), medium (12” x 12”), large (18” x 24”), and extra-large (24” x 36”). 

First, I adhered my canvas to 2 layers of heavy metallic card stock in teal and purple.

 For mine, I wanted an ombre water color effect behind the Dew Drops. I used Faber Castell gelatos to create this effect.

I then added Dew Drops in pink, purple, and blues from those in the kit using clear liquid adhesive.

To finish it off I adhered it to heavy black chipboard to create a frame.

Under the sea - Mixed Media Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

Marie-Christine with you today with an "Under the sea", mixed media card.
Look how I used the lovely Dew Drops!








How to do




I prepared my background with some green and blue watercolor, I sprayed some water on it to mix the colors.




I stamped some under the sea patterns and I colored them with watercolor paints.



 
Here is the result. I stamped my title on the top.



Then, I adhered my vintage fish, I found this image on Pinterest. and, I drew some doodles with markers.




I added the Dew Drops on my card.




Here, my card finished!

Believe: ATCs with Diamond Dew Drops



Hello to all my crafty friends!  Mary here on the blog to show you how I created these vintage inspired ATCs using Shimmer Diamond Dew Drops for some added bling!

I started by selecting some supplies, such as white and turquoise paints, craft glue, cardboard, The Robin's Nest die cuts, a vintage music page and Diamond Dew Drops.





I cut the cardboard to standard ATC size, 3.5 x 2.5 inches, and then distressed them with a distressing tool and scissors.






I ripped up a vintage music page and glued the pieces down in random spots.



I scraped on white and turquoise paint with a palette knife in random spots.





I love these delicate Robin's Nest Doillie die cuts!  I used Distress Ink on the edges, cut it in half and glued them down on the ATCs.






For a more vintage look, I also distressed the edges of the ATCs with Distress Ink and a blending tool.



I selected the opaque Diamond Dew Drops and glued them down in patterns on the die cut and made sure they were good and dry before moving on to the next step.




I pulled some paper flowers out of my stash, distress them and glued them down onto the ATCs.  Then, I painted the centers gold with a paint pen.






I grabbed matching quote stickers with gold lettering to match the gold centers of the flowers, distressed the edges, and glued them down, even though they are sticky, just to make sure they stay put.







I wanted to add more gold, so I edged the pieces with gold paint pen.


Here's the final products with some close ups!  I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and want to make your own ATCs with Diamond Dew Drops too.
