Duplicity - skulls roses and butterflies

Yes I know it's not the normal glam / cutie / flowers etc. but if you look in my shop there are a couple of skulls around.  This image is called Duplicity and you can find it in my shop on Etsy.

Today is my hubby's birthday.  It's been a while since I've drawn a skull for him.  I don't want to get too predictable and every time we (him and me) have an event to celebrate I do it with skulls.  That's why there's been JD & Coke and then Otters :D

So I thought he was overdue.  I'd seen some artwork where people had drawn skulls which were made up of other objects, hidden by objects or they form part of it - so...... I decided to see if I could draw something along those lines.  Drawing this I obviously HAD to be sneaky.  I'm not sure if he's caught glimpses of it but hopefully he's been too busy with work and his playstation LOL!!
I've coloured it mainly monochrom with only the rose in colour to add maximum impact.  A rose for my love on his birthday.  I've used Copics and polychromos pencils to do this with.

There are no sentiments with this I just wanted the art work to have maximum impact.  I've distressed the edges and mounted it onto some black card.

He is definitely going to love this one :D

Happy Birthday Allen!
