Monochrome Rose

Good afternoon. I hope everyone has had a lovely day so far. This is going to be an extremely short post, I have only just come in from work and must get some house work done today!

right this one is for the Simply less is more challenge week 18 Monochrome.
and the CES challenge clean and simple


I broke out an extremely old wood mounted stamp for this one. Its by Linda Hutchinson from a company called Stamps Happen. The Image is called How do I love Thee

I just stamped the image onto white card stock using black memento ink and coloured the rose using copic's  in warm grey shades W7,W5,W3,W2,W1,W0. The image is then mounted onto grey Bazzil card stock and embellished with a snippet of grey ribbon

I am not sure that I am happy with my first attempt at a monochrome card but I am sure I will get better with practice. (Hopefully!)
