Dragonfly Monochrome

On  this card  I  tried  some  new  techniques  and  got out  my  mica  powders  which  I  rarely  use .

I  dry embossed  the  background  card  using  a freebie butterfly  embossing  folder  .I  did  the  same  with  the  white  card  and sprayed  both  with  CC  Spray  and  Sparkle  (irridescent )
I  wanted  a different  effect  for  the  top  black  card  and  decided  to use  a  cheap pen  type  spray  I had  bought  at  a  show  .At first  I  tried it out of  glossy  card  but  found  the  mica  would not  dry  at all ,I  retried it on dull  paper  and  this  gave  a  good  effect  and  I  added Jones  Tones  irridescent  glitter  .  I  fussy  cut  two  dragonflies  after  stamping  Sheena  Douglas  dragonfly and  using black  embossing  powder .  I used mica  paints  to  colour  them  (the  photo  doesnt  do  the  colour or irridescence  justice  .} When  dry  I  was  able  to  add  promarkers  .Unfortunately  I  discovered  it  wasn't  a good idea to use  Mica  in  the  spray  as  later when  I  tried  to use it  the  mica  had  blocked  the nozzle  and  tube  !!! A  lesson  learnt  .
