For the background paper I used Pearlescent Pastel Colours, from the USArt Quest watercolour palette, on ordinary printer paper. While it was wet I scrunched it up then straightened it out and left it to dry. The idea came from The Stamp Man site, one of my favourite sites.
You cannot see the effect but it is very shimmery. I added some ribbon and hearts and used the negative of a peel off on one and the positive on the other.
