How to Enhance Dew Drops with Micro Beads

Hey Friends,
Karen here…We all know that Dew Drops are beautiful but did you know you can enhance Dew Drops.  In previous projects I have used permanent pens to embellish Dew Drops and I have also added glitter glue to Dew Drops for a bit of extra sparkle.   This time I am adding micro beads around the edge of the Dew Drop to create a stunning center for a flower.

Supplies: Classified Dew Drops (Pearl)

Directions:

There were many techniques used to create the flowers.  Flowers were stamped onto paper, vellum, and mulberry.  Carefully, fussy cut the flowers and gently bend the petals over your finger to create dimension.  Next, I used a needle and thread to cinch the center of the mulberry for more realistic petals.  Stamp a ballerina silhouette onto white card stock.  Then apply purple embossing powder, heat set, and carefully fussy cut the image.  Use a needle and thread to gather a piece of pink tulle to create the ballerina’s tutu.  Adhere pearl Dew Drops or clusters of three Dew Drops to create the center of the flowers.  Next, use a liquid adhesive to attach those super tiny micro beads.  Gently pour the micro beads over the wet adhesive.  Use a deep plastic storage box and place the project in it to help contain the runaway beads. (aka: tricky little escape artists)  Clean up is easier if you avoid using a cardboard box with flaps and crevices.  Layer the pattern papers and create a cluster of flower embellishments with one flower overlapping the top edge of the card.  Finally, adhere the dancer, embellish with glitter glue, and add a music note brad.
