Again- the background is from the Technique Junkies (2004) newsletter - this is one of the first techniques I tried when I joined- this one uses Apricot Appeal and Pumpkin Pie.
I made the background with a cut out of an SVG I cut from Bird's blog (Background 4)- covered it with Modge Podge and now use it as a stencil. I simply daubered on Pumpkin Pie ink. I embossed a strip on the Lt- a honeycomb embossing folder that is about an inch wide by Sizzix and highlighted over the top of that with Pumpkin Pie ink as well.
