Imagination Crafts mid month inspiration

Morning peeps 
Here's a bit of mid month inspiration for the
Each DTM is taking turns to do a demo/ tutorial so this month your stuck with me ha ha 
I decided to do a quick tut on looking at and using your stamps differently.
We all get stuck in a rut with our products but if you can use elements of your stamps it gives them a new life .... I even cut mine up !!!!
The acrylic ones fit perfectly back together for using whole again ..or just ink up the portions you want to use ...
Any hoo here goes 

Stuff I've used 
IC bird of paradise stamp set
IC hearts and swirls stencil
IC Sparkle medium -bright red/chartreuse
Two 6x6 pieces of white card and a piece of acetate
Gold EP
Walnut stain DI
Black Stazon
Coffee/tea optional hee hee
First prep the bits 

I used the Bright Red SM through the stencil
And covered the heart with the same
Stamp the tail part of the bird onto acetate and cut out,
I've used acetate then I can flip the flourish for matching wings
I cut the other 6x6 card into a frame shape
I then used the net part of the stamp with Versamark (I cut it in half)
then embossed with the gold EP
I didn't match it up too well to add to the grungyness
Then I added the mini flourish to the corners
Then I went round the edges with the DI
and added a bit of SM to the edges.
I drew around the heart shape and cut it out of acetate
which I then stamped with a sentiment
and covered the back with the SM
Once dry I mounted it and the 'wings' to the heart shape

Finally I layered it up using a bit of Pinflare...Ta Dah
I hope you enjoyed this quick tut
