Good morning-

Christmas Parchment Craft
I LOVE this technique challenge and these images from Jacqueline Hill are so perfect for it. I embossed the image with white detail embossing powder and with the stylus, embossed the reverse side, to add the shading. 
Here is a closer look at the birds and embossing.  I also added glitter glue for color shine. 
Carefully, trying to hold my hand still added, pupils to the birds.
