Another D-Fly ATC


Another dragonfly ATC with a much darker background this time.  This ATC was cut from black mountboard and the background made by spraying with homemade mica sprays.  I used lilac, sapphire and silver micas in a mini sprayer with water and a few drops of Distress re-inkers to add a colour element.

I sprayed liberally and allowed the coats to dry between (they don't photograph well unfortunately but look fab in the light).

The swirl stamp is from Cherry Pie and was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with imperial crown violet gold Moonglow embossing powder.  The other stamp of the dragonfly tag was then stamped with Versamark and heat embossed this time with antique gold embossing powder.  A few dots were added to the wings with an opaque white pigment pen to finish.

Simple, but effective, I think the black mountboard is a super surface for moonglow or mica sprays because it really enhances the mica shimmer and colours.
