Once again Ranger and Tim Holtz have come up with another unique addition to an already fabulous line of products. This particular Stickle offers some beautiful and new options for any of your projects! Adding the fantastic look of Rock Candy with that glistening and beautiful glitter effect we have come to love from our Stickles is a rare and perfect detail to any of your projects. Spread a thin layer over your entire project, just a little to highlight certain areas...or dab it on...no matter how you choose to use it, you'll soon know how special this product is!
I just added Rock Candy Distress Stickles to my stash of Stickles and it's really neat and looks so much like frost and snow because it's not highly glittery like the regular Stickles. It can be spread all over a project, or put in just a few spots and looks great either way.
I really like the Tim Holtz products and enjoy his videos, so I'm glad to have a source for his products.
I also got the larger jar of Rock Candy Stickles for larger areas, so I can keep the small bottles with the spouts for smaller detailing.
I´ve got tons of stickles and I can´t say that I´m very pleased with the distress series. I think the original is much better. They are messy and the colours are not the same as the ink anyway. But this is an exception. It is SO useful. Yes, it´s as messy as the other distressed ones, but it doesn´t matter since it hasn´t got any colour and you don´t use it in the same way. You can put it on flowers, stickers, fabric... whatever. It´ll get that little spark. Really nice.
I love to use Stickles in all my cards and layouts – it just gives this an extra bling and pop that makes it look so nice. Works really well for my holiday cards too! Though the Distressed version has a large opening and if you aren’t careful you can get a big blob to come out instead of the fine line. Once you get use to it, you can really work some magic! I think I have just about every shade offered!
