Crystal Effects is a dimensional glaze. It gives a wonderful glossy, 3D look to a project. Just look how puffy and shiny the frosting is on this image.
Crystal Effects comes as a liquid in a bottle with a long narrow applicator tip. Basically you "paint" it on your project. Its an easy way to get an embossed look without the heat gun. Or get the embossed look for just part of the image.
This image is the cupcake from a stamp set called Easy Events. By the way, this is my "go to" set when I need a quick card. There are 8 different images to choose from, each with a sentiment. You can see all 8 images in this post.
You can add color to these images 2 ways: One way is by stamping in black and coloring the image with markers. Or, use markers directly on the stamp. In fact, if you use markers on the stamp you can omit parts. For example you can ink just the image and not use the words. So this set of 8 becomes a really versatile set in your stamping "arsenal".
OK, back to the Crystal Effects. Here is the card with and without the Crystal Effects. Click on the image to make it larger.
