Rootbeer Card for Dad

I made this card for my dad's birthday next week.  I used the Smiley Cards Cartridge that is on the Gypsy and made a shape card.  I used White Puffy Paint and the heat gun on the top to make it look like real froth on the top.

I tried this technique with the puffy paint a couple of weeks ago and it didn't look right. :( I was trying to do a cloud. Is there a trick to it?

Rootbeer is my all-time fave. Love the foam at the top too. :)

Cely, I just put the paint down and then use the heat gun to make it puffy. It takes about 15 seconds to start puffing and I do put the gun rather close to the paint. Hope that helps. :)
