The background paper is stamped with VersaMark ink and then heat embossed with sparkly white powder. The next step is to sponge a light blue ink over the paper leaving some white space. Fill in the white space by sponging on a darker blue ink. The final step is to use a purple ink. For some reason using the purple around the stamped flakes really makes them visually pop off the paper.
I wish you could see how sparkly the paper looks!
The second technique is with the embossing folder. I applied a small coating of the purple ink to the inside of the embossing folder and then set my white paper in place. After rolling it through the Cuttle Bug the paper comes out looking vintage with color splotched over the surface and in some of the crevices of the embossed image.
