I chose to use a new background stamp and embossing set by Sizzix I purchased at Tuesday Morning. You stamp the image and then use the embossing folder to emboss different areas. Here is a close up to see how it embossed.
I then colored in the flourishes with my Lagoon ink pad and blending pen, then using a blending pen and chalk I lightly colored the flowers. Using chalk give a very subtle color. I added gems to the centers of the large flowers. The smaller print was made using Lagoon ink and a background stamp.
