This is the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen. As you can see it is just like a water brush pen. Both of the pens have a barrel to hold liquid.
These are the Distress Markers I used to color the image. I have listed all the colors in the supply list below.
Scribble the Distress Markers on to the acrylic block. To activate the flow of the pen gently push on each side. The word PUSH is on the pen. Using the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen pick up the color from the acrylic block and start to color the image just as you would if you were using a regular water brush pen. Be sure to color one area at a time so the colors don't bleed into each other.
Here is a look once all of the coloring was done. Look at all the sparkle and shimmer! Here is a quick look at the second die cut I colored for another card.
Here you can see some of the beautiful shimmer. Be sure to scribble the pen on some scratch paper in between colors until it returns to the clear glitter so you don't accidently mix and muddy up your colors.
Here you can really see the shimmer....
Here is a close up of the bottom of the card.
Here you can see my second card which I created using the "Just for You" sentiment from Graceful Sentiments Clear Stamps with the lilies and butterflies from Caring Thought Clear Stamps. For this card I used the Spellbinders New CHA Release Dies S4-471 Labels Forty-Two, and S4-473 Labels Forty-Two Decorative Elements.
