Fusion - Peacock Dynasty

Welcome to another Fusion challenge!  As soon as I saw the latest photo inspiration, I thought of a particular patterned paper called Peacock Palace from Cristina Re. I had a single piece of this paper left, so I did some fussy cutting around the peacock image and came up with this:
I created the background by adding Versamark ink over my Swirl Stencil from Hero Arts, then adding Iridescent Sparkle embossing powder from Judikins and embossing with my heat gun.  I then used my blending tool to add Distress Inks to the background in Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers (of course!!)
The sentiment from Clearly Besotted is white embossed on black card stock.

(It's with cards like this one that I wish photos could capture glitter and sparkle better.  This really looks special in real life!)

 Please come on over to Fusion to check out the creations of all of the design team, and decide whether you will use the photo, the sketch, or create a fusion of both!
 Thanks for visiting :)
