Showing off a little Valentine card today... I used the new Beauty Roses image. It's a personal challenge for me to color roses.... I can be a little critical and I typically seem to over color... trying to continue to shade and blend long past the point I should have stopped. Give me a cute little cat and I can color it up in no time, give me a rose... I'll sit with it for way too long and agonize over it!
Here are the Copics for the petals.
The R81, R83 and R85 are by far my most favorite pinks.... I skipped R83 in this flower.
I used G46, 43 and 28 for the leaves, adding the G28 for a little more depth.
I used the Krylon Silver pen to outline the edge of my die cuts. I love the metallic shine and it gives an illusion of another layer. The small embossed ridge from the die gives you a nice little indented line to follow along with the chisel tip.
I layered the rose image under my pink frame. I've been into making frames lately layering with Nesties... such an easy thing with all the fabulous dies out there!
