Make it Monday #213: Condensation Effects

Betsy has us using our Glossy Accents to make some "Cool Condensation" on our cards. Now, does she mean "cool" as in temperature? Or "cool", as in an "interesting effect"?? I guess both apply ;)

Anyhoo, here, at the last minute, is my effort. I used the flowers from "Flower Favorites", and the vase is from "The Ton" stamps (Peonies). The sentiment is part of a sentiment from "Banner Sentiments" set, selectively inked. I die cut and stamped the flowers, then watercoloured the background, as well as the water in the vase. I cut a slit in the top of the vase to tuck the die cut stems behind, then stamped the stems into the vase of water in an attempt to make it look more like the stems were IN the water, not glued on top, like the flowers.

 And here is a close up of the "condensation" on the vase, as well as a bit of the dimension of the flower hanging over the top of the vase. The Glossy Accents are not dry, yet, but I have to get this posted!
Thanks for looking!
