Winter Wonderland - Embossing

The challenge this week is all about embossing:

Now, that you have read that post..... I will tell you that I chose to do dry embossing:

I have used a Universal Embossing Folder called "Happy Holly"  that I bought a few months back but hadn't managed to use as yet.  I inked the folder using  Tim Holtz Distress Ink called Peeled Paint before I embossed the white card.  I also inked around the edges of the panel using the same distress ink.  The horizontal strip and matt were white card that I coloured using that same Peeled Paint Distress Ink which has come out darker as it was direct to paper.  The sentiment is one from When the scrap hits the fun    .  The holly on the embossed panel has some red added using a copic marker.  I have also used a copic marker to colour the three bears on the top.  The bears were my daughter's idea as I didn't originally have them there - but she pointed out that the sentiment had bears in it and there were no bears on the card!  The only bears I could find were blue brads so I coloured them to match the card.  I have also added a couple of the smallest size of Kaisercraft rhinestones to the green strip.
