    Els, thank you for responding so quickly. I thought maybe the Cool is whiter looking and the Warm might be more of a cream. Thanks again for explaining the differences.

    Great technique and love the suggestion of using the black peel offs. I would love for you to show us a video of how you design your cards and put them together: color choices, additional stickers, etc. They are all so beautiful. The little touches are what makes your cards lovely. Can’t wait for your return to Roseville.

    Els, I enjoyed your video very much and learned a lot from it. I do have some questions though. What is the difference between the Cool and Warm Diamond Glitter? Is one better to color over than the other?

      Sue, for this technique there is not a big difference. You will see a big difference when you apply the Cool or Warm Diamond on black card stock. The Warm has more of a gold tone and the Cool a blue.
      On white you hardly see the difference.
