Experimenting with Tonic Nuvo glitter

I used Smooth card, Centura Pearl card and American Crafts 12x12 paper.
Modge Podge gloss and Tonic glitter. 

Smooth card 
Centura pearl 
Kanban printed paper and stencil (create n craft members gift).
Brushed on glue n glitter.
Not too bad, seepage under the mask a little but a flower or butterfly can cover that up. 
I didn't clean palette and added glue.
With brush dabbed glue over the mask. 
Lot of seepage under mask!!! 
Sprinkled glitter over the glue and basically looks a right mess lol. Probably won't go to waste because i can use a glue pen to add more contrasting glitter. If it still looks a mess I will have to bin it! Its only paper and hardly any glue n glitter used. 

This is how the papers looked when dried. They didn't take long to dry but with using the gloss glue they still look wet! 

Now let's try die cutting them. 
American Crafts

Centura Pearl card 

  Smooth card
Surprisingly they cut really easily. I used the tonic dragonfly die which is very intricate but it cut with no problems. I can't vouch for other makes of dies though.
