Crafty Boots - Diamond

This fortnight, the Crafty Boots theme is "diamond" representing April's birthstone, chosen by Amy.

However, I have not gone down the gem route, but used my diamond stencil (crafters workshop)  I made a card, with the Funky Bird stamp by Neil Walker for Artistic Stamper (and which I recently won on a giveaway on Neil's blog)

I sprayed Calypso Teal Dylusions spray through the stencil on a piece of white cardstock and trimmed it to fit the card blank; edged it with vintage photo distress ink.  I stamped Funky Bird with peacock feathers distress and cut out, edged with vintage photo again.  The sentiment is by Dylusions and again edged in vintage photo.
