The photo doesn't show the layered cardinal as well as I hoped for. I created a sheet of cardinals in MDS and printed them on Whisper White cardstock. I watercolored in Cherry Cobbler and cut one cardinal out, emossed it with clear embossing powder and layered in on the other image which I sprayed with Glimmer Mist ( I like this better than Smooch) and mounted the whole thing on Cherry Cobbler! A bit of DSP from the holiday mini on a Handsome Hunter base with a little vinatge crochet trim and it's done!!
You can see how I also colored the image below for a tole effect. To emboss the image I just pressed my watermark pad directly on the cutout image and then sprinkled clear embossing powder over it and then heat set .
This is what I started out with : a 8.5 X11 sheet of images :
I think that this has to be my favorite card I made this Christmas and it was so easy,too!!
Hope you enjoy!
