Here is a slanted view so you can see the silver metallic beauty:
How did I do it? First I used a sponge brush to cover White Daisy CS with a thin coat of Gesso. I let it dry for an hour and then used my heat tool to complete the job. Then I spritzed the paper with water and scribbled with Cotton Candy and Silver Ice Gelatos. I used my fingers to spread out the colors.
Next I heat dried this piece before running it through my Cuttlebug machine with the Darice Snowflake Swirls Embossing folder.
Then I used a "wet wipe" to gently remove some of the color from the raised parts of the CS. (You can see this in the finished card).
Here is a photo of some of the art supplies I used to create this card:

It was fun to try out a new background technique and I really like how this card turned out. I can't wait to try it out with more than 2 colors!
