This background is NOT DSP, I made it myself and I think it worked out wonderful. Very simple too. I took Emerald Envy CS and simply stamped all over using one of the stamps from Christmas Pines, then I used the little Star/snowflake/dot background and my Whisper White pad.
I stamped my image using a versamark pad and Gold embossing powder then used my Aqua Painter to fill in color, using my ink pads. Just press down on the cover to transfer some ink to the lid, open pad and using the Aqua Painter pick up some ink. Just be careful not to press down too hard so you break your lid.
Gold foil DSP was used under the image piece, then I stamped my little banner piece and inked the edges with Real Red.
Oh and BTW, the Gold cording comes in a 3 pack with Cherry Cobbler and Garden Green, and the Gold especially is stunning! It looks like shiny chain with the twisted cords that make up the twine and it catches the light so beautifully. I think I'm going to have to order more!
