Video: Adding Subtle Glitter + Tips for Using an Intricate Stencil

Hello!
Today, I have another video for you! Whenever I thought about using glitter, I always thought of the cards where there is a lot and, as a person who isn’t very “into” glitter, I kind of steered clear. However, after watching a video about using glitter on cards from Julia Altermann about a month ago, I realised that glitter, in the right place and amount, could look quite subtle and pretty.

I’ve also learned that by using glossy accents to adhere the glitter, it grabs onto the glitter and once the excess is brushed away, the rest doesn’t budge as glossy accents is such a strong glue. And, because it dries 3D, along with the glitter, it helps add a little dimension to the card.

I’ll be entering this card into the following challenges: Addicted To Stamps “CAS“, Sasayaki Glitter “CAS“, Marvelous Magnolia “Flowers“, and Aurora Wings Challenge “Tic-Tac-Toe” [Thread, Yarn or String – Flowers – Sentiment].
