I first filled the oval bezel cup with light pink self-adhesive Sea Glass created by the wonderful folks from Mudd Puddles. Love their stuff!! I used an idea my talented friend, Judy Hayes did on her recent sneak peek project - stuck a jump ring at the bottom of the cup (it's supposed to be closed which I did afterwards ;0P). Set aside to dry.
Next I cut Media Mixáge Birds One blank dies and S4-378 Cherry Blossoms, dies with shrink plastic, colored with Copic markers and heat to shrink. When cooled, I coated them with Matte Medium to prevent the color from running in the dimensional finish at the end.
I poured dimensional finish into the bezel cup. After an hour into the curing process, I added the Sakura blossom, bird (added a pearl for its eye) and branch, covered them with a little dimensional finish and let dry overnight.
Lastly, I added on a metal "e" monogram charm and a couple of clear crystals on the jump ring at the bottom of the bezel cup. Insert into the card that I have created earlier in JR: JUNE 2013 Release - Day 1 post - it was perfect for this project! I took out the existing sentiment and stamped another sentiment on the card front. Then I added a Sakura blossom at the bottom (folded five die cuts in half and adhered to each side to form a dimensional flower), inserted the pins and added pearls to finish.
