The image was stamped on dark cardstock with Versamark ink. After heating, Sparkle n Sprinkle's Clear Detail Embossing Powder acts as a resist, allowing the brown CS to remain dark under the embossed image. The coloring technique is a fun, easy application of the Brilliance Inks listed near the bottom of this post. They are simply "smooshed" on. For small details, a barely-wet paint brush may be used to pull color off the pads, or a reinker.
The above photo shows the shininess of the inks and EP. It's a little difficult to capture with a camera. The Cosmic Copper is on the flourish as well.
The Moon Light White Ink is a creamy white opaque color which shows up nicely against dark cardstock and darker colors of Brilliance Inks.
On the far right of the card, the ivory Fleur De Lis Borderabilities die cut is cut in half lengthwise.
Thanks to girlfriend Loretta for gifting me the pretty velvet ribbon. It has an ivory crocheted lace detailing on the right of it.
