A Blog Named Hero August Challenge - Embossing!

Hello!   Are you ready for another challenge from A Blog Named Hero?!    This month, the focus is on embossing, and our fabulous collaboration partner is none other than WOW!    They make some of the most deliciously glittery embossing powders, and for today's card, I used one called Cloud 9 to create my sparkly feather background.
I stamped the gorgeous Hero Arts Layered Peacock twice - the peacock body and legs on my card base and the tail on a separate piece of cardstock.   The sentiment is from the Hero Arts Layered Flamingo stamp set.   

To create the background, I stamped the feather from the Layered Peacock stamp set all over a piece of navy cardstock with Versamark ink.   I then used the Cloud 9 embossing powder and heat set - it's soooo sparky and gorgeous in real life.   It's hard to capture just how awesome it looks in a photograph!   I die cut a square from the center of the embossed panel and adhered it to my cardstock so that it framed the peacock.   

I fussy cut the peacock tail from the separate piece of cardstock and adhered it with foam adhesive so that it flows onto the embossed frame.   

I hope you'll join us this month and enter your project using embossing!   Head over to A Blog Named Hero to link up!  You have until the end of the month to get your entries in.   I can't wait to see what you create!!
