smART Word Challenge March - Monochromatic

For the month of March, it was Dina's turn to pick the Word for the smART Word Challenge and her choice was - MONOCHROMATIC. I love monochromatic cards but rarely think to make them.
I was playing around with this new to me Noah's Ark (smARTworks) set trying to find something to do with it that was different than just coloring it in with my pencil crayons or watercoloring. I decided to see what it would look like in various shades of brown. I liked what I saw and realized that it would fit Dina's word!!
I added a brown scallop edge using my new Fisker's Treading Water edge punch ** love it ** and a bit of brown on the other side with some piercing along it. I added a simple sentiment taken from one of the larger sentiments in the Fun Stuff set (smARTworks).
So, what color are you going to pick for your MONOCHROMATIC card?? Remember, you can use whatever supplies you have on hand but if you do use smARTworks stamps you will earn a smART Buck!! Bonus!!!
Thanks for dropping in. I look forward to seeing your creation over on Mr. Linky!!

This is a stunning example of monochromatic! I would not have thought that it would have looked so good. Your coloring and shading is stellar.
