Have you tried creating a shiny & permanent mask with Glossy Accents?
I just recently tried it and I love the results!
I started by stamping the Winter Anemone and leaves from the Spring Blossom set with my favorite no-line coloring ink.
I watercolored the images with Distress Oxide inks.
When the watercolored image was dry, I covered the whole thing with Glossy Accents.
After the Glossy Accents was dry, I used a blending brush to add color to the background. I used a barely damp paper towel to remove the excess ink from the glossy flower.
