The yellow/orange background was achieved with Derwent's Inktense blocks. I like using them for a first layer because although they blend beautifully when wet, once dry they are permanent and will not react with future layers. Wendy Vecchi's "weeds" stamp is what I used for the technique, and then (shamelessly) lifted Linda's idea of then overstamping with archival ink to make the images pop. I added the smaller version of the weeds on the bottom, but not with the brushless watercolor technique. There, I just stamped them with distress inks. There is some detailing with distress markers and gel pens, and a bit of ribbon and some buttons to embellish.
