Embossing with micas

No secret that I love this micas and today I though I´d show how I use them on my cards and layouts. They are perfect for the vintage touch.

So when using micas you heat it from underneath and using the embossing-powders as a fixative. Here I start with UTEE that I have mixed with some purple glitter.
Then I take some gilded mica, break them up to small pieces.  
 Now to the aged silver powder.
 Heat it from underneath, if you heat it from the top everything will blow a way, trust me...
 Here I´vie taken some more vintage powder and micas.
 Here is a last tip, I´ve made this cheat note with my embossing powders.
Love Julia
