I wish the pictures showed the shine that this card has in person. I used a silver metalic paper that I found at the office supply store. White Daisy pigment ink was applied to the bottom using a sponge in a wavy swipe from right to left. I then used Indian Corn blue the same way to do the sky. The silver shows thru in places giving a special shine. I also stippled on some White Daisy lightly and when completely dry, just barely added some petal for a touch of color. Stamped the tree, sentiment and bear in black. Outlined lightly the tree and the ground swirl with a puffy paint, let dry then heat set to puff up. Glitter glue was also added for extra dimension. The glitter glue even though it is clear, picks up the green color in the black ink and appears green in places.
