Monochrome Colouring

Good Morning All I hope you are well, I have been a bit down lately, what with my eye and a couple of other things, anyway my step-son Malcolm popped in for a visit and had brought me a copy of Simply cards and papercrafts. In there was a wonderful artical called monochrome stamping by the Lovely Kim Dellow, Now if you don't know Kim you really should take a look at her blog she is such a wonderful inspiration.
So I thought I would have a little go. I coloured my image with promarkers using a mix of greys and a touch of red, and even had my first attempt at some doodling. Kim had used coloured papers in the artical but I have kept mine clean and simple,Thank you Kim for some great Inspiration.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

Thank you for stopping by, I appreciate your visit.
Have a lovely day
Kevin xx

Hi Kevin

Eyes are important and problems with eyes can get you down, I know I have a problem that no one knows about and have been under Sheffield hosp for years, it here is only two hospitals in the uk that deal with my problem and Sheffield is the best, one day I will tell on my blog but at the moment we go up once a year to the optical oncology dept.

Great card, Lovely image and design
