I decided to try a new technique in honor of Shelli's contest this month. I found this in an old magazine and decided to give it a try. It is masking a background stamp set and pairing it up with heat embossing. So the first thing you need to do is punch a circle on a scrap piece of paper and use that as your mask. Next lay your mask on top of the red paper you want to stamp on. Next using versamark stamp the background stamp. Sprinkle some heat embossing powder and heat emboss and you have your circle background image.
So here is my finished product along with the ingredients to make it:
