Cool Background technique

I love this technique posted by Suzanne at Quietfire Design and decided to do a version with products I had on hand.
I used 140# cold pressed watercolor paper, applied water with a brush, dipped another brush into my purchased diluted walnut ink and coated my paper. Then I sprinkled Stampendous Baby Blue Pastel opaque embossing powder on that and some gold mica. Spritzed with water and used my heat tool. Love the look I got- different from Suzanne's but cool just the same; color, texture and glitz! The atc has Eucalyptus walnut ink.
Now have a look at Suzanne's!
