This card turned out so well I wish you could see it in person. Well, you can if you come over to my house. Call first and make sure I'm home. But anyway it is drops of several different colors of reinker on a paper plate. Then I took a cotton ball and pounced with one color all over a panel of glossy card stock. Let that dry and pounce the next color. They blend together and make a beautiful, shiny background. The stamps are Stampin Up. Be kind to one another.
