Make it Monday #213 - Cool Condensation Effects

Hello friends.  Playing along with Betsy Veldman and her "cool condensation effects" challenge over at Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday.  My card started out SO different than what it ended up to be (think different stamp set, different colors), in fact the only thing the same is the smooshed water colored background!  Anyway, I left the water jar behind, picked a different stamp set, and really like how my card came out!  Take a look:


 
I used a couple of distress ink colors for my backgrounds (Festive Berries and Spun Sugar), and then used Ocean Tides ink for the greenery (Meadow Greens) and the Festive Berries distress ink for the flower.  I had to hold myself back when it came to adding the little dew drops with the Glossy Accents...they look so cool that I could have easily covered the whole card with them!  But anyway, a little bakers twine and a tag (Tiny Tags) finished off my card.

You can check out Betsy's cards and video right here to play along.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!! :0)

  3. Gorgeous card, Marcia. And I understand completely about 1) ending up with a completely different card; and 2) wanting to cover the whole card with drops once you get started :)
