Monochrome colouring

It's amazing what a fabulous effect can be achieved by colouring a digistamp with only ONE shade of colour! This digi from Digistamps4Joy is called Sharon, and I coloured her in with black, dark grey, and light grey watercolour pencils. I love the end result. The card is a basic 5x5 with a black cardstock with punched corners on top, a white embossed background, diecut swirls (1 x black), and a butterfly punched out of the same 3 shades of paper.
