OK, here's my sample:
For my background squares, I used Pulled Pastels and Marker Tapping from the Feb/March 2010 issue, and Antiques Glimmers from the Dec 2009/Jan 2010 issue. The main image employs the Wisped Frames techniqe from the Feb/Mar 2010 issue. Image and sentiment are Stampendous acrylics. A Spellbinders die was used for the main image. Card stock is black, white, and brushed gold. The central image was colored with Copic Markers YR23, G24, G99, and BG09, and the piece was outlined with a gold Krylon Leafing Pen.
