Now my technique is a bit hard to capture with a camera but fairly easy to talk you through. For starters, you will need a stamped, colored image, dimensional adhesive such as Diamond Glaze, 3D Crystal Lacquer or Crystal Effects, I think Glossy Accents will work also and a toothbrush.
Working on a protected, clean surface, take your dimensional adhesive and lightly add streaks to the stamped image working from top to bottom. Try not to have an large globs.
Once you have layered streaks all across the image, take your toothbrush and run the bristles in the same direction as the adhesive, working across the image - you will want the texture the bristles are making. The layer of adhesive will be thin and will dry fairly quickly.
Once the first layer is dry, if you wish you can add another layer in the same direction. But if you are happy with the coverage then you will add streaks of dimensional glue from side to side. Once more, spread the glue with the toothbrush also from side to side and allow to dry once more.
After the image is dry, use it to create your own little work of art!
I hope you have enjoyed seeing this technique enough to give it a try, it really gives the image the wonderful brushstrokes you would find on a canvas along with lots of shine. Thanks for stopping by! Here are all the stops along the way and let me tell you - there are some wonderfully creative people out there!
