After ink blending, I applied some Cosmic Shimmer Paste in Aurora Sparkle and Iridescent Glitz Glitter Gel from Gina K Designs on top. I wanted to apply a thin layer of the glitter pastes, however both were a bit drier than usual. I thought I had ruined my project and started to scrape off the glitter pastes. However, that’s when the magic happened!
When I scraped the drier glitter paste off the surface of the cardstock with the palette knife, it left behind awesome distressed glitter areas. The texture and sparkle was unexpected and beautiful! I decided right then and there to continue with my card!
This surprise technique could be replicated with regular glitter paste by applying a thin layer and letting it dry just a few minutes. Then scrape some of the paste off with the edge of a palette knife (or whatever you’ve used for spreading out the glitter paste).
