This Magnolia image of Tilda and Edwin has been pretty versatile - useful for all kinds of celebrations depending on the color choices and the sentiment. Now I am adding "romance" to it's list of uses.
After coloring with Copics, I added the strip of paper to the right with one edge punched with lace and the other side embossed with my Score-It - plus a ribbon. It was still too plain even after adding the Hero Hues Dots on the corners, which brings me to a TIP: I ended up using a pen to draw in the three frame lines - which is amazingly simple! You don't have to draw straight - you deliberately wave the lines and cross them with each other. It helps to have a pencil dot in the 4 corners to aim for so that the frame remains somewhat of a rectangle. It doesn't hurt to allow the lines to go behind your image so that the focal image is partially "out of the box"!
That image panel was then mounted on a sparkly lavender panel and then on to the card base.
