The background was made using this Hero Arts stamp called Lotus Background:
I used a VersaMark pen and inked up the flowers first then heat embossed with glitter red embossing powder. Then, while the stamp was still in my MISTI, I rubbed off the ink covering the flowers, used the pen to ink up the green leaves, and heat embossed with glitter green embossing powder. I did the same for the gold accents. The silver dots were applied with a Viva Perlen-Pen.
By using my MISTI and a VersaMark pen, I was able to choose the areas I wanted to ink up and not have to ink the entire stamp.
