The mica flakes do not melt with heat and versa mark ink. You have to use a dry adhesive such as score tape etc. A wet adhesive will work but it's messier to use. You can use it to highlight different areas of your card or scrapbook page. I watched several tutorials on You Tube. Just look up scrapbooking with mica flakes. It's very helpful! Then just be creative! Hope this helps!
