is from the blended colors.
If you can start with a larger image, then you can carefully
edit more of the blended colors, then resize smaller.
If you can start with the original vector format, then you
can anti-alias that to your silver background and make everything
except the new blended colors transparent.
Finally, if you can't do either, take your original image and
place it on a silver background.
Carefully use a soft-edged erasing tool to blur and soften the edges.
