Diamonds in the Rough

I love Rubbernecker Stamps can you tell? I just had to play with more new images I just received. The Diamond Border goes so well with the new Cuttlebug Diamonds in the Rough embossing folder, that my card was based from that. I stamped the diamond border in Tea Dye distress ink repeatedly on the cream layer, inking up every 2 times I stamped. After that, I embossed the layer with the EF and then did a DTP technique with TH walnut distress ink. The cracked glass Lg. Diamond Tile and Petite Tile were stamped in walnut and Tea Dye inks and embossed 4 times. I used walnut ink to sponge on my large tile and then used a copic marker to go over the "cracks" and blend the ink in. The petite tile is layered on a vanilla cardstock and is up on dimensionals. The mesh is from angel wings bought in the doll section at Hobby Lobby. The fabric tag sentiment is an unknown tag that I received from a RAK. Oh, the acetate layer was stamped with Perfect Pearls medium and dusted with gold powder. The stamp is from the Stamp Oasis section called Dragonfly Collage. I hope you like this as much as I do!
