First attempt........

Got home from the Holiday Boutique this afternoon about 1.  Mel was so awesome and had lunch waiting.  I was starving and BLT's minus the T with mustard was perfect.  Then an attempt to nap.  Up, cleared the desk (didn't put anything away - that would take waaaay to much time!  I just shifted it to the side.) and coloring.  Just wanting to relax after the last few weeks and ahead of classes the next two days.  So I got a glass of cold white wine, put on my oh so soft! new red scarf - picked up at the boutique today - and stamped some images to color.  This is my first attempt at monochromatic coloring.  I'm actually kind of pleased with the results.  I can see where I can improve but for a first time, it ain't as bad as it could have been.
This is one of my favorite images from The Greeting Farm - Cheeky Rockabilly.  I'm happier with the gray monochromatic coloring.  I have more Earth colors but the E colors don't follow the same kind of rules as the rest of the colors so they can be a little trickier to blend.  I can see some areas that I'd like to try some different shades in on the left image.   I may actually have to see about die cutting these and creating a card with them.  What do you think?
