Watercoloring With Heat Embossing

I'm playing along with Dawn McVey's, 

I gessoed a page from a book, embossed the sentiment & tree with white embossing powder,
and then watercolored the background.

(Finished size:  3 1/4" x 4")


Thanks for your visit.

This is so sweet- I love the tree embossed with white (I've got to try that), and the little birdy is colored beautifully!
