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’!
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.
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!
