The Flower Challenge #44 Monochrome




I found a sliver of alone time yesterday to color a gorgeous digi image from Alex Syberia for The Flower Challenge #44 Monochrome




Sticking with peachy pinks, I found a group of Copics that played well together... adding a bit of gray to the leaves for shadows... isn't it funny that TaeEun did the same?  Please don't compare our cards though … her Copic skills blows us all out of the water!


 
I'd better get this over there … my groom is home, and it's our 25th anniversary today!!  Seems like yesterday... or maybe last week?  lol
