Make It Monday #213: Cool Condensation Effects

Today, I have a card to share that I made using this week's 

I was very inspired by Betsy's card and decided to use
the same stamp set for mine.
I used Lawn Fawn's Summertime Charm for my jar.

I stamped my sentiment (from PTI's Think Big Favourites #5) and jar in Versafine onyx black
and heat embossed it in clear.
I masked off my jar and inked the inside in hawaiian shores and aqua mist.
I masked the sides of the jar to stamp my flowers from Brushed Blooms in Altenew's Frayed Leaf,
Buttercream, Caramel Toffee & Paper Bag.

I added the condensation with Glossy Accents.

Before I go, I thought I'd share a comparison between the new Altenew dye inks
and the Papertrey Ink's that I have in similar colours.




I've been really pleased with these new inks!
I'm sure if they release more colours, I will get them...

A friend asked how they generational stamp. 
Here are a few examples:



If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful card. Thanks so much for the comparison with the new inks. So many to choose from it gets confusing, but these look like the generational stamp really well. Xx

Love your card! And thanks for the ink comparison! I was wondering how they would compare ;). Do you have PTI's Harvest Gold to compare with the Altenew yellows?

Really pretty card Leigh and love the soft and subtle colors you used. Thanks for the ink comparisons too...looks like the Altenew colors are a little more vibrant. Good thing there's room for all sorts of colors out there! :0)
