So hard to photograph these well! I prepped with gesso, then painted with pink acrylic paint. Then I stamped with craft ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. Finished with a clear gloss spray for a nice all-over shine. Then I used terrifically tacky tape and clear microbeads on top. Wonder if I could have skipped the embossing step since I used that gloss? Inside the tin is a tag book.
