I've been playing a lot with my copic markers lately and working on my shading skills. So, when I coloured up this image, I imagined a card that would be all shades of grey...but that red flower kept calling to me!
When I stamped my Life is Better With You stamp, I first masked off the flowers, so that they wouldn't be peeking into the edge of my image. Then, I started playing with my shading, leaving Stella a little bit lighter in colour than Angus. Once assemebled, I added a small bit of red to the image and the red flower. I left the card blank, as it could be used for any number of occasions...having a few cards for this purpose in my stash is always a good idea for when life gets crazy busy!
