Thursday's Blast From the Past Challenge - Heat Embossing in color

Happy Day!!!
Thursdays for me are STV's Blast from the Past Challenges . This week it's Heat Embossing !! Everybody heat embosses, right!!! But if you're a newbie (and we all were), pop over and learn this technique...just click on above won't be sorry!

the twist to this week's challenge is to heat emboss using colors! ink or powders...

This card is done with one of the new July Releases at Gina K. Soon will be's called Pretty as a Peacock and was created by the super talented Asela Hopkins. I have been patiently waiting to get to use this set....hope you like peacocks...cause I am making cards with this set like crazy!!!

the gold cardstock from GKD was tough to photo - it's truly a gorgeous gold. Base cardstock and mat is GKD's In the Navy and dp is Webster's Pages, the blue/green dp is from GKD's digi section created by Theresa Momber Wings of Hop, and my peacock is heat embossed  with clear embossing powder over Vivid's Ultramarine and colored with Copics:  B69, BG18, 49 and Y28. The gold accents are done with Signa Gold pen and stash ribbon.

hey, did you know peacocks come in a ton of colors! I didn't ..but googled and will be trying some of the gorgeous color combos - there's even a white peacock!
For the challenge at STV, you do not need to use Gina K Designs stamps to participate, although we'd love it if you did! In fact, if you use Gina K Stamps in your entry, then your name will be added to the prize drawing TWICE! Please be sure to create a new project for the challenge versus linking up something you've created before.

You have until next Wednesday, July 7th, at 8pm CST, to upload your sample. One winner will be drawn at random to win a Gina K stamp set valued at $24.95 or less!

truly looking forward to seeing your creation in the challenge!
