The flowers are clip art images from Hallmark card software, printed on patterned paper. Once they were printed, they looked too flat. I decided to add a shadow with a Promarker.
The image on the left is how it looks printed onto the paper. The center image shows how I outlined the shape using n Ice Grey 5 Promarker. The image on the right is the outline softened by using a blender pen over the grey outline.
Another thing I did today was to use the negative portion of the cut out letters as a stencil to aid in placing the letters where I needed them onto the front of the card.
