Here's my feeble attempt -
I was inspired by Chrissie's colors and embossing. For my background panel I blended several red distress inks, flicked with water and then sprayed A Muse Stardust Finishing Spray to achieve some shimmer. I then heat embossed an Inkadinkado Hummingbird with Simon Says Stamp Ultra Fine Gold embossing powder. The panel was then die cut with 2 of the SSS Stitched Rectangles dies. I dry embossed black CS with the Sizzix Tim Holtz brick embossing folder.
The gold edge on my card base was also heat embossed with the same embossing powder as the hummingbird. I then adhered all the pieces together, popping up the center panel with foam tape.
I will enter this into:
