Monochromatic with Copics

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had a nice weekend, mine was fantastic even though it rained most of the time. Saturday I was in Montreal and took a Copic Monochrome coloring class with Jeanette Comerford, she is such a talented person and I love her coloring techniques.

I had never colored a Monochrome image and was eager to try it, well that's my card today. My image is Marci with rose from La La Land crafts and is colored with copics in the cool greys, we also colored the same image in the warm greys which I am keeping for a future post as I need to make a card with my image.

I added a touch of Violet and a bit of green to the image to make it pop. I distressed my papers and used my Krylon Silver leafing pen on the edges of the cardstock to pick up the grey from the image and the charm.

I am entering my card in the following challenges
Creative Card Crew - anything goes
ABC Challenge - V for Violet
Divas by Design - one for the girls
Southern Girls - Frills and Pearls
Wags'n Whiskers - Stitches
Paper Sundaes - Vintage or Shabby Chic
Sundays with Crissy - Flowers

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day
