Hello everyone! It’s Gracie, and I’m back with a new video tutorial. Today I’ll show you how to create beautiful stenciled backgrounds using foil and glitter textures on one same stenciled pattern! This technique is inspired by an older tutorial that I created using loose glitter together with foil (here). Nowadays we have new products that make this technique even easier and faster to achieve. I’ll be using the new Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel in Grass Green and Turquoise Sea, and I’ll also match them with the coordinating colors from Gina K. Designs Fancy Foils. Scroll down to watch how it’s done.

I’ve put together a video tutorial and I’ll guide through the process step by step. Since we’ll be using 2 different textures which require also different applications, we’ll focus on applying the foil first, and once that’s done we’ll come back and apply the glitter gel.
