PTI MIM #269: Embossed + Outlined Backgrounds

Leave it to Betsy Veldman to come up with this cool idea of embossing images and then outlining them with a coordinating colored marker. You can see her sharing how it's done here for this week's Papertrey Ink Make It Monday. Thank goodness for these challenges as I not only try something new but it motivates me to create. And now, back to creating more Christmas cards before it's too late to mail them this year.

On with my Get Well card for a dear friend who just had hand surgery this morning. (We were up way too early on a Saturday as she had to be there at 6 am.) I embossed What The Doodle: Feathers in white and used a VersaMarker for the outline since I don't own any Copics. The sentiment from Painted Petals was stamped in Dark Chocolate. The Kraft card base was sponged using white pigment ink.

Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments. 

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Kraft
Ink: Dark Chocolate and VersaMark
Stamps: What The Doodle: Feathers and Painted Petals
Dies: None
Other: White Embossing Powder, VersaMarker, White Pigment Ink and Sponge
