Marci with a rose

Good day,

A while back I took a class in Montreal with Jeanette Comerford on Monochromatic coloring with copics. This image is colored using the warm greys
Woo, W1, W3, W5, W7, W9
Pinks: R20, R22, R24
This is my first time coloring an image with warm greys, I really like the finish look.

For my card, I used DCWV Mariposa collection paper & Kraft cardstock which I first inked with vintage photo distress ink and then edged it with my Krylon gold leaf pen. My die is Spellbinder #18, which is one of my favorites.

I am entering my card in the following challenges
Simon Says Stamp - Anything goes Bloghop
Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
Lets Craft and Create - Blast from the past (#20 dies to die for)

Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by

Allo Louise, isn't monochromatique coloring a fun challenge? I love it, especially warm greys, they are my favourite. Your little image is darling, she is soooo cute. Love the contrast with the brownish pink, very chic and rich. Gorgeous layout.
