blending colors

These two cards are the same but different.  can you see the differences?  I'll tell you first the sayings second the size of the jar but and this is a big BUT the jars are the same stamp.  the thank you card is the jar as it is supposed to be stamped.  the hello card is where it is different ... I only inked the top of the jar then stamped it and connected the bottom with a pen to make a stubby or shorted version of the same jar.
I also added some wink of stellar to the inside of the jars but as you can see had a bit of an explosion on the taller jar with my wink pen so the glitter kinda looks gold-ish but it is a clear pen.  also added a thin layer of glossy accents for a more crystal clear water effect.

  5. Beautiful blending on the background, such a great colour combination! Love how you played around with that jar stamp. It's great when stamps can be used in different ways!

  6. Oh Wow - very smart- Iwouldnot have thought of that - now I will be looking at my stamps in a different way. Great job, and the shading is beautiful. Thanks for entering our challenge this week at The House that Stamps Built. Shirley H. DT
