Oh Honey!

This is my second post, please scroll down for the first one!!

This week's challenge with All That Scraps is to create a card using the monochromatic technique, this just happens to be one of my most favorite techniques!! This means we'd like to see you color an image using only one color, but different shades of it.
I went for the vanilla brown shades and colored my image called Honey Bikini. Doesn't she look super cute and sassy? After coloring her I realized that now she could be called a bronzing beauty!
After coloring, I added some crystal lacquer to her glasses to make it look real. These line of stamps and more adorable ones are available for purchase at the store and can be used to participate with for the challenge. I hope you'll join us!!
