This card simulates reptile skin on the background. Depending on the color you start with, you can get a fairly accurate elephant hide look or even a rattlesnake skin.
Dab, smoosh or DTP some co-ordinating pigment colors on a glossy panel and sprinkle clear EP over the entire piece. Using a toothpick, a needle or something other, "draw" lines across the EP. This removes the clear EP. Then go ahead and heat emboss your panel. See how my "lines" appear different?
I layered some black, some grey, along with an image by picture show to finish it off.
