Glass Bead Glitter Gel, Color Bursts & Stencils

Hi everyone!
Happy Friday!
Today I have a couple of cards to share with you using a new to me product called Glass Bead Glitter Gel by Faber Castell.  The StampNation Dream Team was lucky enough to get a huge box of amazing goodies from Faber Castell and the Glass Bead Glitter Gel was one of the products in my box.  It is so fun to work with and adds some amazing shine to your projects.  Thank you SO much Faber Castell!

For this card I used the Glass Bead Glitter Gel, spread it over my stencil, then applied some Ultramarine Blue Color Burst over the whole thing.  I then spritzed with water to get the color bursts moving and blending.  I have to give credit to the amazing Ingrid for this fun technique.  She shared a video recently over on StampNation and I knew I had to try it out.  Thanks, Ingrid!

This card uses the same technique, but masked off the stenciled portion so it is a one layer card with the sentiment popped up.  I used Alizarin Crimson Color Burst powder on this one.  The sentiment stamps are from the Spot On stamp set in the Foundations Box by Catherine Pooler.  I used Lil' Inkers stitched circle dies to cut out the happy sentiment.

I am adding these over at Seize the Birthday: Anything goes.

 Thank you for visiting and have a great day!
