Monochromatic Elements of Style

I thought this stamp set would make a great monochromatic card. For those of you that don't know, a monochromatic card uses just one color, and it can be different shades of that color. I decided to use different shades of pink (rose) on this one.

I stamped the flowers in Rose Red ink, and then I brushed a wet aqua painter across the stamped flowers and leaves. Rose Red Classic ink isn't waterproof, so it bleeds a little when it is dampened. This makes the flowers look like they've been painted with a very pale shade of pink. I also used the sketch, SC276, from SCS (Splitcoaststampers).
