Accenting w/Magicals

The Magicals, aka mica powders, from Lindy's Stamp Gang are amazing. They have this two-toned effect that will add a little something extra to your images. Here I show you how I used these magicals to color certain areas of my images.

In this card, I colored the Mad Hatter's hat, his coat and his socks. Also the tea pots in the background were lightly colored with Ponderosa Pine. These pictures don't give these mica powders justice. When they catch the light at the right angle the images come to life.

This image from The Greeting Farm was colored with my copic markers initially. I then followed up with the magicals: Witch's Potion Purple and Freaky Franken-Lime (Haunted Halloween Magicals Set). You can watch a video of me using these here.

The great thing about these magicals is that they have a built in fixative already combined. There is no gum arabic or sealant needed. The mica powders will not rub off. I hope you guys enjoyed my first little tutorial as a Designer for Lindy's Stamp Gang...more to come. Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone had a great weekend.
