Heartfelt Creations - Altered Message Board

I have another Heartfelt Creations project to share with you today.   We are featuring the Tropical Paradise Collection!  

I love to browse thrift shops for little treasures.  I cam across a memo or message board that was in great condition.   I immediately thought of my Heartfelt Creations images and knew I wanted to use the memo board for my altered project!   I hope you enjoy this!

Cut green designer paper from the Tropical Paradise Designer Paper Collection to fit frame.

Stamp the lovebirds on X-Press It Blending Cardstock.   Color the Lovebirds, flowers and leaves with Copic Alcohol Ink Markers - (G40, G46, YR20, YR23, BG10, B00, B12, B23,  Y11, Y13 and  Y15),  Die cut the image with the Tropical Parrots Die Set.    Die cut 4 more images on black cardstock and adhere to the back of the colored image.  This will provide strength.   

Stamp the leaves from the Tropical Paradise Stamp Set, Color with G40 and G46 Copic Alcohol Ink Markers. Die Cut with the coordinating die set.  

Using Spellbinders nesting circle die, cut one circle for a mat for the lovebirds.  Die cut a nested circle from the yellow and orange designer paper.  Adhere the mats and pop the image up with dimensional dots.   Adhere the matted lovebirds to the altered memo board.    

Stamp the Plumeria on white cardstock.  Cut with the corresponding die.   Shape the flowers with the Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit.   Emma Lou has a wonderful video on creating and shaping the plumeria flower HERE.   
The flowers were sponged with Coral and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Ink.  Some Go Man Go Prills were sprinkled around the center of the flowers.   

Teal Gala Glitz was adhered to the left side and base of the  picture using Dries Clear Adhesive.   The leaves and plumeria were adhered.  

The sentiment was die cut from the  Tropical Parrots Die Set and adhered to the center of the picture with Dries Clear Adhesive.  

Adhere the Sticky Notes to the bottom of the message board.   

 Thank you for stopping by.   Stay safe and happy crafting!
