Foil Play DT Challenge: glittered and foiled cards from Wellington

Here are two gorgeous Design Team Challenge samples, showcasing glitter and foils, from Wellington of the CraftTelly.com forum.

This stunning glittered card is 6 x 6 inches, made using one of the images from the Elusive Images Fancy Mandalas with a backing paper from a DCWV text stack and glittered using pastel and crystal holographic ultra fine art glitters. Wellington applied the glitter using a Sakura Quickie glue pen - she commented that the glue pen was great to use for detailed work, as it has a fine flow, which is really easy to control.

A detail of the mandala is below:

The foiled card is 8 x 8 inches and is made using three pages from the 6 x 6 K&Co Sparkly Sweet pad. Wellington decoupaged elements of the pattern and then used foils (from a starter selection pack), again applied with a Sakura Quickie glue pen, to highlight some details of the pattern.
Here's another close up showing more detail of the foiling:

Thank you, Wellington for these beautiful cards!
