Technique Tuesday - Dew Look on Flowers

I am finally back to creating. I really have the bug, since I took so many days off over Christmas break. I started working on my "Adding Class with Liquid Glass" display boards, so the techniques you will be seeing for a few weeks will involve liquid glass.

For this card, I used the Delight in Everything stamp set and Let's Get Together paper packet. Some of you said these are your favorites. This stamp set is so versatile. You can't see on the card, but I put liquid glass on the yellow flowers to represent dew. Liquid glass is so great, because it dries clear, which lends itself to endless possibilities.

I learned from my friend, Jeanne, when you purchase liquid glass to cut just a little from the tip of the bottle; place a straight pin in it and put the cap back on the bottle. Then, turn it upside down in your carry-all and it will be ready to use the next time you grab it. I used to have to pick the dried piece of liquid glass out of the tip before I started. Now, I use Jeanne's tip and viola...I am ready to go. Thanks, Jeanne!

Here is the close-up of the flower, so you can see the dew. I wasn't quite sure how much dew to put on the flowers. I guess it is up to you.

Now, it is your turn!

Happy Stamping!

Yea, Kim is back! Missed your regular posts!!

This is a GREAT card. Love the idea of putting dew on the flowers.

It's simply "delight"ful! Great work.

Did I really tell you about liquid glass or are you referencing another Jeanne? If it was me, I'm happy to know I helped you out a tad. :o)
