Be Kind and Helpful

I used two Technique Junkies Stamps sets for this card - Faith, Hope, and Love - .  I water colored the images and layered it with cardstock and then layered it on some lovely floral background paper. The middle bird was fussy cut and layered on top of the other birds.  

But what I really want to talk about is the beautiful shimmer and how that was achieved!  I used the Art Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Pens - .  The amount of shimmer they add to a project certainly gives  the art work a very delicious shimmer!  It is just beautiful.  

I also own Wink of Stella pens.  I want to show you the comparison of the two types of pens.  It was hard to get a photo to show you the shimmer. This first one is just on red card stock. The top is Wink of Stella and the bottom is Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua pens.  
This next one is on plain black paper.  They both had shimmer but the Nuvo pen had more colors in the glimmer and was just lovely.

Next I used watercolor pencils and used both the Wink of Stella pen and the Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua pen.  They both moved the color in the water color pencils and both added glimmer.  However, the Nuvo Gloss Glitter Aqua pen had more glimmer than the Wink of Stella.  I was surprised at the results.  I thought they would similar.

And lastly I used both over Prisma Color pencils.  Both had glimmer but the Wink of Stella was slightly more opaque over the Prisma Color pencils than the Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua pen.  

I found this experiment to be very interesting.  II have tried different brands of glitter gel markers and found that the "original" glitter gel markers were better and more glittery than the "newer and more expensive" glitter gel pens. 

So I really like the Nuvo Glitter Gloss Aqua Pens.  Here is the direct link - .  And I think they are slightly less costly than the Wink of Stella pens because you get two in a package.  

And just like always, you can have a 10% discount by using the code TJ10Judy and this code is good on anything on the Technique Junkies website unless it is already on sale.  

So I hope you have found this blog post informative, and that you can find time today to get inky.
