Three Diamonds

Greetings paper lovers! I can't help but think of today's three cards as "Diamonds in the Rough". 

These cards were inspired by this weeks palette at
For each card I cut out some diamonds with my Cricut die cutting machince, using the Storybook cartridge, out of three different papers. I then patch worked the diamonds onto the top layer of paper for each card.
I painted a chipboard figure black, love the little bird on top, layered it up with some tulle, glitter leaves and a pretty red flower. I cut the papers a bit larger than the actual card size and then got them wet and wrinkled them into a ball. I carefully unfolded the paper and then scrunched and shaped it to fit the card. Hence the diamonds in the rough. I glued gunned the papers together as they are pretty heavy once you start layering.

Card #2, thought I would make one horizontal. Above is the front of the card and below is a shot of the back.

Card #3 is similar to #1. I used a metal frame on this one, and layered the tulle, glitter leaves and flower on top of the frame. Below is a glimpse of the back of all three cards.
I really enjoyed making this set of cards, they are my favorite style......wrinkled, weathered and layered up!
  Almost all the materials for these cards were purchased at the new local scrapbook store
  Here is a list of all the paper used for these cards, Basic Grey, the Kissing Booth line. Fabscraps, the Heritage Script 4 line. and some Bazzill paper. The flowers are also from all purchased at Paper Daisies. The tulle too, they will cut whatever length you need.
  The metal frame on card 3 is from but purchased at the local store.
