I used light blue, two pinks, metallic purple & metallic green, misted with water and pressed my embossing folder (Cuttlebug "Traffic Jam") closed... Repeated to get the top area done - you know the folder wasn't the right size... Dried everything, then ran a Perfect Medium pad all over the design and embossed with Pearlescent embossing powder. Sanded off the high points. Used a purple Spectrum Noir pen to create my border, then did another line with a Black Zig Writer.
Inked up a piece of white cardstock, both direct to paper and sponging with Distress Dusty Concord" & "Seedless Preserves". Misted with water and dried, then ran a Perfect Medium pad all over and clear embossed. Ran through my machine with Sizzix Tim's "Elegant Flourish" die. Adhered to card.
Stamped the sentiment (Quietfire Design) with Versafine Black Onyx.
