Spring Vase Thank You

This card uses the Versatile Vases stamp set from Newton's Nook. I stamped it on watercolor paper using Ranger Archival Black. Then I colored in the flowers, leaf and water using Mondeluz Aquarelles and went over them with a waterbrush to spread the color. On the Newton's Nook website I saw that someone had used Glossy Accents to color in the jar and make it look like glass. I tried that idea with limited success. This might be a technique that takes a few tries to get it right. Next time I might try using a Sakura Glaze pen instead to see if the effect is better.
