This is an easy tecnique but hard to explain in just words. The diamond is created by folding the cardstock into the center and then running it through the crimper. The boat image is from the new mini (big surprise) the stamp set is called the Open Sea. To add some color the matching dsp was placed behind the ship and a finger dauber was used on the edges of the ship image and attached with dimensionals. I have found that when I attach textured background I prefer to use the liquid mono adhesive.
