Faux Velvet is the name of the technique used for the textured looking background piece here. The technique is in the April/May issue of Technique Junkies.
Stamps are from I Brake For Stamps. The kids sitting on the couch are from the Stampinback collection and the Speckle background from IBFS.
The stars are textured grungeboard that I dabbed with a Radiant Rain Dauber and sponged the edges with black ink.
