Hello blogging friends! Today I've actually got a card just for me, or hubby, as it were. I know I've been laxing in using my maggies and and doing anything other than my DT work so I'm trying to break out of that and get some other things done. Anyway, my anniversary is coming up and I thought these two.....
.... would make a great card. This is Waiting Tilda (aren't we always) and Shy Rose Edwin. It took me a few attempts to get them how I wanted them, but the rose just over Tilda's shoulder won out in the end. This card was supposed to go into MDUC's 2 of something challenge, but I didn't quite get done on time...a few issues at the house today and I could've sworn I had until 5pm CST, will remember next time. Ah' well, these pretty papers are from the BoBunny Crush collection and I knew right away I wanted to use them...I love pink and black together and the added red looks fantastic! Lucky for me my Tilda matched cause I fell back into old habits and colored her first. The flowers are WOC and I colored the larger one's to match.
Here's a closer view of the sweet couple. Tried to color them close to real life, lol. I have blondish hair and if hubby didn't have to shave his he'd have brown hair. Tilda's cheeks are a little pink, but I think she looks a little shy here too, so it seemed fitting. Why not a red rose you ask, my fav color is pink so I think to rose should be pink too...can't even remember the last time hubby got me red flowers,lol
Here's the inside, pretty simple, but I wanted to show you the sentiment. Do you have the song in your head now?? I can't get it out of mine,lol...maybe I should turn some music on something else might pop in my head!
Alas, I have copics for you. Yay, me!!(Now I've got London Tipton in my head...idk which is worse) Should share that in order to get that rich red color I first colored the shirt in E53 then with the reds, darkest to lightest. After you've got the reds done you can add more E53 or 55 for even darker colors, just remember to watch for glossiness, when that starts you need to stop.
Ok, well, that got a little wordy, sorry about that. I've found some other challenges to enter and you can find those listed below. Hope you liked my card today.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great day!
