Today's card features a couple older Die-Versions dies and lots of embossing powders.  I die cut the Feather die several times to create the background and the Hello Express Edge was used to create the sentiment.  (Enabler alert: the Express Edge die is on the Farewell Sale list right now, so if you like it you need to get it before it's gone.)

To create the multi-colored feathers, I started out by covering the die cut with VersaMark and then I sprinkled on the various colors of embossing powders.  I did not heat set in between each color.  The embossing powders I used were all from Sparkle N Sprinkle (Black, Blueberry, Copper Mountain, Dust Storm).

Once the embossing powder was heat set and cooled, I then added some Rose Gold Velvet glitter to the top of the die cut.  I heat set this again from the bottom.  As you reheat the embossing powder, the glitter melts into the embossing powder.  This gives you a bolder strip of glitter versus using the glueless glitter technique, which has a more subtle glitter look.

For the Hello sentiment, I added a bit of bling using the Spectrum Noir Sparkle markers (Aquamarine) and then I covered it with Glossy Accents for a bolder, shiny look so that it would stand out a bit more.

Mixing and matching embossing powders is a fun and quick technique that will give you different results every time.  If you don't like how it came out, you can always sprinkle a little more embossing powder over the top and re-heat it.
