This technique is a bit of a variation on the double glitter technique. I used the technique with Art Institute Microfine Transparent glitter, the color is called Rock Moss, which is a very soft green. Then I did the background in a transparent crystal glitter by Stampendous. Next I stenciled with a Brilliance ink, the color is called Ivy and it is a Pearlescent pigment ink. With the stencil repositioned, I used one of the curves on the Picasso stencil shield (LL332) and stenciled down through the center of each leaf. I also shaded the edges of all the leaves. Yes, you can stencil on glitter. This opens up so many possibilities, because the glitter still shows through the pigment ink. I like using transparent glitters for this technique, because they are pale and this way the ink really creates and shapes the image. The berries at this point are still the green glitter color (but a pale color because it is transparent glitter), so I added the Brilliance Crimson Pearlescent pigment ink by Tsukineko. I used one of the large holes in Picasso to shield off the green areas while I did this red color. The Rejoice stencil (LS1001) was paste-embossed with Metallic Gold Embossing Paste. For the finishing touch I attached the bow with foam mounting tape and then used the gold three inch embellishment pin and affixed it by pushing it down through the foam tape to protect anyone from being stuck with the sharp tip.
