I made the striped paper using a versapen and then going over the stripes with bronze pearlex. The leaves on the artichoke paper are in duo yellow/green pearl ex. It is very pretty in person - shiny and shimmery. The glue charm has both bronze and duo yellow/green pearl ex on it.
The layout was inspired by a cad chantal did.

it is made with a hot glue gun.
Use a heatproof pad or a baking dish with a tiny bit of cooking oil rubbed inside.
put a quarter side dollup of hot glue in the baking dish.
Let it sit for 15 seconds.
Put versamark or even a little bit of cooking oil lightly on your stamp.
Set stamp in glue. DO NOT push it all the way down into the glue, let it just rest on the glue.
when glue is completely cool, lift out your stamp.
Ink stamp with black ink and stamp into the impression you made.
rub ink or pearl ex over the charm.
you can punch the glue charm with a regular hole punch or use needle and thread.
If you are having trouble or need better instructions, give me a PM =)
