At first I wasn't sure I had made the right choice by picking this color because I wasn't sure I would use it all. One month later and the bottle is gone! I looks great on cards as an accent and I've used it on a LO to outline bright colors to make them stand out! I am very glad I chose this color now because the things that I made with it wouldn't have been the same without it.
This is an interesting & groovin color… for me, some Stickles are REALLY glittery while others have more of a subtle shimmer. This is in the more glittery category but because the shade is so dark, you do not get THAT much light-reflectiveness. But there is definitely a cool sparkle that looks great accenting edgier dark stuff. It has some multi-hued flecks in it – purple, blue, green – you can see then in the bottle or when dry but note you do not see them much when this is wet. I would like to see more black shades with bits of color the way there are so many white ones with colors. Rockin’!
Because I ink most of my work in black I wanted *something* that would tie in the black to my page colors. THIS IS IT, it picks up other colors perfectly! I am completely in love with this color and thats saying a lot... I own most of the stickles! Fruit Punch was my fave from day 1 but Black Diamond *might* have taken over... just don't tell fruit punch ;) LOL!
I bought 1 bottle of this color because I wanted an all-purpose color that doesn't interfere with my usually colorful LOs, together with ICE Stickles Crystal which would be the clear or "white" color. I have never used Stickles before and so the moment I took off the cap, I was amazed by the very fine applicator tip. Used it to fill in the shoes of a stamped girl image, and it turned out perfect - gorgeous black sparkling shoes! It dried to a little flatter than when I first applied it, but not totally flat, and the dimension it adds to small areas is just right. For a more raised effect, multiple layers may be applied, allowing each layer to dry completely. It is also very easy to mix the glue into itself; it doesn't show up hardened/dried trails, making it very easy to use for coloring and filling in areas. My only complaint is the thumbnail image doesn't do justice to the sparkle it actually contains!
Love stickles glitter glue! A crafting friend introduced me to this product and now I am hooked. I don't do paper crafting but I do embellish my art prints for cards using this product. Black Diamond is just another color in my arsenal, and while very unusual, I think it is also quite beautiful. If I could afford it, I would own all the colors. The price here is way better than in our craft stores, and there is a great selection! Don't hesitate to buy this product from this website. Customer service is also excellent.
