Say it with Sentiments Challenge #79

Hi Friends! Hope you are all having a great weekend. Today I'm sharing a card I made for Paper Playtime's Say it with Sentiments challenge. For this challenge the sentiment was "miss you" or to create a card or project letting that special someone in your life know that they are missed. So here is the card I created

I took a background stamp by Hampton Arts and inked it up using versamark ink and then heat embossed the image using some black EP. I colored the image in using multiple copics and unfortunately I had put about half of them away before I noticed  that I didn't write them down, so I couldn't tell you which copics I did use. All I do know is that I used quite a few of them and I can say that I was very pleased with how vibrant the copics color popped on this image after it had already been heat embossed. It gave a raised image and I just loved the look of it! I then took my white sakura gel pen and made some dots around certain portions of the image to make them pop a bit more. The image is up on foam tape.

The sentiment "missing you" was actually a dollar stamp that I pulled out of a bin at Michael's long ago so this was the perfect stamp for this challenge. To finish off my card I added some twine from The Twinery.
