Crystal Effects - Clearly for You

 Here is a pretty card I made using the Clearly for You stamp set - one of the new sets from the Occasions Mini Catalog from Stampin' Up! I used my markers to ink up this raspberry image and then I used a bit of Crystal Effects on the berries to give them a beautiful shine that has a bit of raised texture to it as well.

Here's a closer look at the Crystal Effects on the raspberries - CE is just one of my favorite products to add a touch of shine and simmer. There are some fun techniques using CE, too - we'll be using a few of them at my Technique Club in January and in February. The only drawback using CE is that you have to give yourself time to let it dry - usually about 20 minutes, sometimes longer, depending on how thick you have it.
