Anyway, I started out digging for a piece of glossy white cardstock and found a large piece I'd done some technique on a long time ago- I don't even remember just how it was done, but might have included reinkers and alcohol and cotton balls, but I could be wrong. I stamped the Medallion background on this piece in chocolate craft ink then embossed it in clear powder. Then I used the large square punch to punch out various sections.
The rest is pretty self-explanatory I think. I embossed the sentiment also, which is from Teeny Tiny Wishes. The Medallion is also stamped once on the background in Versamark.
Hope you like it, and please go visit our Diva blog so you can see other great examples of this sketch and also play along!
Thanks for stopping by!

Accessories: Chocolate Taffeta Ribbon, Square Fire Rhinestone brads, Clear EP, Square punch
ETA: I think I found it... the technique I'm fairly certain I used to make the glossy paper have those gorgeous swirls of color was the Ink, Spray, Smash technique (I actually found it by searching on the word "smash" because I vaguely remember doing that!) If I remember correctly you end up with two or more pieces of paper, but only one of mine was that pretty, the other was kind of ho-hum. Anyway, hope that helps!
