Monochromatic with a touch of RED



Good Morning,

I hope my Australian friends are keeping warm.......It's our first winter in Australia for a few years so the boss and I are feeling these cold evenings.......or is it an age thing?  :(

I thought I'd share a card using another LOTV image
.
When I coloured this image I had in mind old photos given a pop of colour, I love the look!
 I used my Copic markers today, W and R with some flesh tone E's.   

To my eye they look taupe though here they look more grey!





Another 5 inch square card using dies for the doily and circle.  
I popped some sponge tape behind the balloon to pop it up a little.


I used Wink of Stella clear to add some sparkle around the balloon and on the roses. 



The sentiment comes from a 6 x 6 paper collection and just seemed to fit.
I think this would make a good anniversary card don't you?


Challenges:  
Creative Moments Challenge #97 - Anything Goes with a twist of ribbons and/or bows.

Thanks so much for taking the time to call past today.........till next time.

Definitely feeling the cold up here, and it's raining just a little too... could be worse though, could be living 'South-er'. Your card is so sweet Sue, looks like you had so much colouring this sweet couple!
