I’m used to using glossy accents to highlight eyes or make balloons shiny and things on that scale. I had never thought of using thin lines of it to create rain or water ripples though.
For this card, I got out the pico embellisher instead of the glossy accents; it’s much more liquid and comes in a bottle with a fine needle tip which makes it easier to draw skinny lines (especially curved ones).
This is a great technique for anything watery, but I can see myself using it to add highlights to geometric coloured backgrounds as well.
