Here's a close-up of the egret image. I stamped the image in Basic Black Craft Ink and then heat embossed it with Black Embossing Powder onto River Rock cardstock. Then I added just a touch of white with my Signo White Gel Pen and softened it with just a smudge from a tissue. This helps the egret portion of the image stand out a little from all the rest of the tiny details.
For this card I used the three birds on a branch image and also heat embossed it onto River Rock cardstock with Basic Black Craft Ink and Black Embossing Powder. I overstamped this with River Rock ink and the Sanded background stamp.
For the background piece of River Rock cardstock, I stamped some of the other images from Clearly For You in River Rock ink and stamped the Sanded background stamp over all. This is embossed in the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder and then flattened by running it through the Big Shot again on the outside of the folder. I also embossed and flattened the Basic Black piece and punched it with the Decorative Label Punch as a mat for the main bird image.
