Home made shimmer or glitter paste diy, with video

The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is: shine bright like a diamond with Tim Holtz.

So I pulled out my Holiday Knit stencil from Tim Holtz.
I first started on red cardstock with Wendy Vecchi embossing paste, white one and added white glitter for shimmer, but you couldn't see it at all once dry :-(

So I pulled out the Ranger texture paste transparant gloss, added glitter and Festive berries re inker from the Distress line, also Tim Holtz.

I also used salty ocean with silver and blue glitter and a Dutch Doobadoo snowflake stencil and a few more.

In the video I also compare just glitter and texture paste and or color with texture paste and no glitter, all completely different effects.

So for the card I trimmed the glittered holiday knit panel and adhered it to the cardbase.
I trimmed a bit of black SSS cardstock for the sentiment and heat embossed the sentiment from SSS set  presents and ornaments. I used Papermania superfine silver as the stamp is very dainty.

I diecut the deer from sturdy glitter cardstock in brown as deer asre brown, right?, was a bit samey to the red, but hey...
