Tropical Birds – Just Because

I can’t get enough of this release from Pretty Pink Posh! The whole release coordinates so well together!

Keep reading to see how I put this card together!

First, I used these diamond dies from The Stamp Market:

On my background piece of card stock, I blended Lucky Clover and Cracked Pistachio distress oxides.

I wanted to add a little more excitement to my diamonds, so I used a Sharpie to add dot borders to each diamond.

I used Darcy 3D strip adhesives to adhere my foreground diamond piece to my background.

(I should’ve done this part first, but didn’t decide I wanted to use the stencil until it was too late!)

I used Tattered Rose distress ink and this stencil (from Pretty Pink Posh).

I stamped all my images with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored them with Copic markers and used my white Gelly Roll pen for the highlights. The copics I used are in a photo below.

I adhered them using Darcy 3D foam circles.

I used some sentiments from the Stamp Market’s “Bear Hugs” stamp set and then die cut them with some word bubbles dies.

I adhered them with the same Darcy 3D foam circles.

I adhered my smaller stamps and embellishments last.

I used Gina K Connect glue for my gems (from Pretty Pink Posh, as well).

And voila! All finished! See below for close-up photos!
