love is all you need


 The current challenge over at The Paper Girls challenge blog is to use rain, umbrellas, and/or flowers. So I made this card that I wanted to make look black and white with just a pop of color.
 First I stamped this great image from Unity Stamp Co.
I spritzed some mist (masking my stamped image first) to make my rain.
I colored the couple using only gray shades of alcohol markers.
Then I used bright colors for the umbrella.
 
A little coordinating twine and a simple sentiment from this set.

Thanks for stopping by today!
