Digitally Sweet challenge #73

Another week at Digitally Sweet and its challenge #73, sponsored by DigiDarla Designs.
This week I chose 'Boy with Flowers' as I thought this image was very sweet and wanted to keep within the Valentines theme.

Here's what I came up with...

I coloured the image in using Spectrum Noirs, choosing a denim theme for the boys outfit with a bright t-shirt and colourful features. 
the image was then mounted on a printed blue textured paper.

For the background, I embossed a piece of white card using a bee embossing folder. I then inked it using pinks and yellow ink. 
I offset the embossed layer with blue checked paper and layered it on to a scalloped edge card blank.

I used blue bakers twine, wrapped around the card and added flowers, which I inked with pink ink and some leaves. I wanted to create a feminine feel with the flowers but a masculine fell by using the twine instead of ribbon.
