A Little Gloss

We have a new challenge on Scrappy Frogs and it is to use some kind of glossy or glassy accent on your project. I decided to use a couple of different glosses on my project. I started with this adorable Tilda image Tilda in Spring Rain. I colored Tilda with copic markers and then started adding the gloss.

I added some Sakura crystal lacquer to her umbrella and boots. This product has color in it already, you can see where I also added it to the rain drops falling down. Then I took my liquid glass and added that to the other elements like the fence, the puddle, and her raincoat. Here is a close up of the gloss on the fence, raincoat, and the puddle.

I also added a little gloss to the paper flowers to look like dew. When it was time to put the card together, I needed a sketch, so I went to Friday Sketchers and followed their sketch.
