Janice - thank you for the nice comments :) DTP means "Direct to Paper" - I pulled the small bravo burgundy piece (that's under the twill tape) directly over the burgundy ink pad. It's hard to see in this picture, but it adds a great distressed look to the paper. I actually embossed the main image on the twill tape! If I didn't, it just wasn't as black as I wanted it to be! I used black staz-on and had to dump the embossing powder over it VERY QUICKLY or it didn't adhere. It was tricky, but ended up working! I used markers to color in the image. I used Ruby Red instead of Bravo Burgundy because the burgundy was just too dark on the twill tape.
Hope this answers your questions!!

This is really nice. I have a brother who has lived in China for 16 years and he often brings home wall hangings as gifts for people - cloth hanging off a dowel. They are very popular in Asia and look just like this. It's great!
