I started out using watercolor paper with my new Distress Ink Markers over an embossed image (a couple of times). They weren't quite what I was hoping for. I wanted the bough to be downplayed a bit and this made it more of a feature.
Then I stamped off the bough one more time and pulled out some of my Copics and colored over the brown ink. I cut it out, found this sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and called it a day!
