Why Wink of Stella?

Wink of Stella brush pens are celebrated in our crafting community for their ability to add a subtle, elegant shimmer to any project. If you don’t yet have one, you’re going to want to grab a couple since they’ll quickly become a staple in your crafting toolkit.

You normally use the pen as a final touch to swipe a little bit of shimmer over your coloured image. It’s ideal for this as it enhances the richness and texture of your artwork.

But when you colour with it? It opens up a whole new area of creativity I’d love you to try!

And another thing? It’s permanent and doesn’t rub off! Another plus for this must-have pen!

Once you have it, you might even want to try this cool technique I happened upon a few years ago for a fab new way to use it! See the cards and video so you can try it too!

As usual, I make a card as my sample, then switch it up when I do the video. My other colour palette is Daffodil Delight and Granny Apple Green on the So Swirly embossed background. Isn’t it stunning agains the Basic Black?
