Join Betsy today as she shares how to use mica powders on dark colored cardstock for dramatic effects:

“I had so much fun playing around with my new Kaboom! set and the effect of using mica powders on dark cardstock, that I really wanted to experiment more with that technique paired with different images. Today I’ll show you a few cards that combine mica powders with dark backgrounds for really dramatic, shimmery effects, even using some two-step stamps for a really cool look!”
