Monochromatic Card


Good Morning! I am running late today. I am normally off on Fridays, but due to the traveling we have done visiting family, Thanksgiving and then volunteering at Ornament Day at my nieces' and nephew's school, I have not had a Friday morning at home in quite some time. I took advantage of that, didn't set the alarm and when I woke up sat down with a book and a cup of coffee this morning to read for a bit. It was great to have my relaxing morning back! My card today is for the Monochromatic Sweet Pea challenge on the In a Sweet Pea Dream challenge blog. I have only attempted the monochromatic thing a  couple of times, so this was a real challenge for me. This was definitely the first time I have attempted it on such a detailed image too. I chose to use the Ching Chou Kuik image  "Seeing Through" from Sweet Pea Stamps. I think I used almost all the E series Copic colors! My papers are from Basic Gray and I used some lace and brads that I had on hand.  Thanks for dropping by!
