Gather your supplies

First, get all of the supplies you need in one place, to make crafting easy!

You will need Gold or Silver AquaTint inks to recreate this project.

In addition to this you also need a piece of foam or a sponge of some kind. You also need an embossed piece of cardstock. If you would like to colour your background as shown you can use any kind of dye inkpad with some ink blending foam.
