This is a stamp owned by a friend who sent me this impression on cream background. I colored with watercolor pencils and then used a water brush to apply Twinkling H2Os over. This blends the base color and also applies a shine.
Then I used a Nestabilities scalloped oval die to cut out and also to emboss the edges of the piece. While the die was still in place I used 'old paper' distress ink to shade the inner scallops and after removing the die I used 'worn lipstick' distress ink to color the outer edges of the piece.
I used a two-stage corner punch that also embosses a design. This is for the pink backing. Then I cut a folded kraft cardstock, rounded the corners and distressed with more of the 'worn lipstick'.
This shows a closeup so you can see the lovely shine of the card.
