Crystal Effects Gives a "Wet" Look

Remember this card from a few days ago? In that post I used this card to show a simple way to vary a lay-out


   

For this post notice the difference in the coloring on the leaves.  For the card on the right the colors are much more intense.  And if you look closely they almost have a "wet" look. Thats because I added some Crystal Effects to the leaves.

Crystal Effects can make a dramatic difference in a project.  The down side is that it takes time to dry. But the benefits include:
**it adds texture
**it intensifies color
**it adds shine

And, Crystal Effects is also a very strong adhesive. This is the perfect adhesive if you make 3D gift items for the Holidays.

 Happy stamping
