Rose With Thorns

Heeeeyyyyy everyone!  We've got a fun new challenge over in the Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group.  If you're not already a member, I invite you to join us.  Her images are amazing, and the group is very warm and welcoming!  I have to admit, making a monochromatic project was a definite challenge for me - I haven't done this before.  But, I love a good challenge, and it turned out to be a lot of fun!  I am using the image Rose With Thorns for my card.  She's a very dramatic image, so she was perfect!


The only Copics I used for this are: E40, E42, E43, E47 & E49.  I used Pebbles Inc. chalk to color the background of the image. 

For my card I used Bazzill cardstock, paper by DCWV and MME, lace, embellishments by Prima and Maya Road, skeleton leaf from Wild Orchid, flowers from Prima, and Memory Box die.  I used an edge distresser on all of the edges of the paper. Not too bad for my first try, I think.  I hope you'll join us for our 'Monochromatic' challenge over in the Ching Chou Kuik Facebook Group.  Have a great day! 

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
TTCRD - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge - Anything Goes
Simon Says - Anything Goes
