Using stickles or here in Australia we have Kindy glitz can be so much fun. I use mine on flowers sometimes with a paintbrush if I want precise coverage but usually I will use it straight from the bottle like a pen. It is so easy to use and has such a stunning effect. Sparkles and bling are all the rage at the moment and if you have not tried stickles yet please do it really is a lot of fun and the outcome is stunning.
Here is a page of my DD and lots of stickles used along the lines of the flowers and butterflies. The limit is your imagination. Go on have a try you will love it.
