Glow in the Dark Dragonfly Wall-hanging

This Dragonfly was made using the Sheena Douglass stamps and Wow Embossing Powders "Glow in the Dark" and makes this wall- hanging a little bit unusual and different from the norm.

The background is scrunched up Co-Ordinations cardstock which I  then embossed and a gold gilding rubbed over the top.  The Dragonfly is from the Sheena Douglass set of silhouette stamps.  I stamped the Dragonfly twice, firstly onto vellum then added mica powders. I then restamped it again onto dark cardstock and added three layers of Glow in the Dark WoW Embossing Powder so that the body then glows when placed in the dark.  Both images were coloured with inks and mica powders.

The vellum wings were cut out and then added on top of the cardstock Dragonfly and  to add dimension,  flowers and embellishments were also added to give depth to the piece.

The Glow in the Dark powders can be used for a variety of things not just card-making but also things around the house - key fobs for instance (one for hubby there I think as he's always losing his keys) and with Halloween coming up then the opportunities to use this powder are endless. Try it out and have fun...........
