The background was made years ago. If I remember correctly it's Elmers Glue and PearlX heated with the heat gun.
I also tried a technique I saw in a video on Stamp TV. You wrap your brayer with a rubber band, roll it in your Versa Mark and embossed with Gold EP. I really liked my background. Looked for a small image so I wouldn't cover it all up.
I tried to get a little artsy. I rolled up some tulle and sewed it together to make a little rose. There is a pearl in the center. Then I tried to make one of those hat pins that are becoming so popular.
