Iridescent Glimmer Card

This is one of those cards that look awesome IRL, but 
not-so-great scanned.
I will describe how I did this and you can imagine
just how magnificent it is ok?

I stamped a crackle background stamp by Red Castle
with white pigment ink and heat set it.
Then I dampened a sponge and dabbed into 2 colors
of dye inks and rubbed it over the glossy cardstock
till blended and rubbed more with a paper towel
to buff it well.

Then I stamped the floral image by 
Technique Tuesday with dye ink.

It gives a glow of iridescent glimmer
to the background that doesn't scan so well.

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
