Direct to paper with a Distress stamp pad, then mist a background stamp with water or an iridescent spray, place cardstock on top, press down firmly for a minute or so to activate the moisture in the stamp with the Distress inks. Lift, You can get a soft look and/or a glimmery look where the mositrue is removing color from the cardstock.

Ink up a background stamp (Flourishes "Damask Bkgr'd") with distress stamp pads - I used Antique Linen all over, then touched here and there with both Broken China & Rusty Hinge, Lightly misted with Perfect Pearls "Pearls" mister. I absolutely love this combination and the look it gave. You could also color with watercolor markers which also give a nice look, but haven't done a sample of that yet.
Another cute tip (green rosette card) was using a circle punch to make leaves. Instead I used a scalloped circle. Punch circle, then put circle part way back in to punch and punch the oval leaf shape.

And I repeated a technique for day 3 I think, embossing on plastic (I used a yellow toned vellum & the D'vine Swirls embossing folder).
