Winter Cardinal

This Thursday's theme for Prickley Pear is Cardinals!  Here I used the solid cardinal from the CLR005A Cardinal Set 2.  I inked it with clear embossing ink and embossed it with Ruby Pearl embossing powder.  I then added a black pearl with the Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  The background is using the Couture Creations Bradshaw Embossing Folder.  Then I lightly sponged around the embossed area with Fire Brick Distress Ink and then over sponged it with the Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  I layed the cardinal on the Scallop Oval Die and added some the Flourished Holly from Cherry Lynn Designs.

This is absolutely beautiful!! The heat embossed cardinal looks great and that dry embossed background sponged with ink is fantastic!
