Hello friends. Playing along with Betsy and this weeks Make It Monday challenge, where Betsy shows how something as simple as outlining an embossed image with a Copic marker can add such dramatic depth to your card. I would have loved to use the same snowflake set as Betsy, as her card was so lovely, but decided to try out the What The Doodle: Tea Time stamp set, as I have not had a chance to use it yet.
Now I realize I didn't quite follow the directions, as my outlined image is more the focal point than a background image, but I still like how this turned out! I embossed my image in white and then blended Lovely Lady, Hibiscus Burst, & Raspberry Fizz inks over it. I used a Copic RV04 to outline the tea cup and heart and I really do like how it makes the image pop! I added a small strip of striped DSP to the edge of my card and then added my die cut sentiment from the Big Hugs stamp and die set. A few sequins and my card is ready to send out to my girlfriend who just had her 2nd hip replaced (she's only 52!!). This was definitely a FUN technique and one I will be using again!
You can check out Betsy's video and lovely card right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do! :0)
