Monochromatic at Stampin' for the Weekend

Hey everyone!

It's Friday come 'round again!  Sadly, this week has really flown by and hubby is leaving tomorrow to go back to Denmark for another 6 weeks or so.  It's been nice having him home and he will be missed once again.

Enough of my depressing drabble.  How about a fun new challenge starting over at Stampin' for the Weekend?  The theme this fortnight is monochromatic, and we are being sponsored by the ever fabulous Saturated Canary!  Grab your shades of one color, and jump on in!  This is once again a new technique for me and I had a great time with it but boy is it hard sticking to one color scheme.

As you can see, I've snuck some green into my shades of red :)  But I think I managed pretty well- even colored her hair a reddish color, whoot!  Papers are from My Mind's Eye, roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and stick pins by The Hobby House that I picked up from The Ribbon Girl.  The lace is by The Paper Studio.

Copics used:

First off my dear Jenn, her red hair is gorgeous, just like mine before the gray creeped in LOL, the shading everywhere is well perfect, the roses are all so pretty, but that red tuff with the netting is a brilliant add on,if you don't win one of those challenges I will scream for you^-^, I also love how you did the oval, slanted brilliant also.
