For my birthday, my sweet husband gave me a wonderful set of watercolor pencils to play with. YES! They are so much fun! :) The textured brown piece behind the bird image is made by running a piece of Chocolate Chip cardstock through my Cuttlebug embossing machine, using Stampin' Up!'s Square Lattice embossing folder. I love the basketweave texture it gives. Along with the twisted fibers in the corner, it reminds me of a bird's nesting material.
