Monochromatic Swap

It's funny. I looked back at the cards I've made over time and a lot of them are monochromatic. But when faced with someone telling me it has to be that way I go blank. Go figure. Anyway I got it into my head that I wanted to use green. Well it is my favorite color. After much pondering and searching I found the image I wanted to use. And so this card was born.

I used Wild Wasabi Cardstock and ink. I cuttlebugged the background and then wiped my ink pad over it so that the raised image could be seen. The sets I used were Hang in There and Warmest Regards, both from stampin' up. I stamped the image in black and then colored it in using various greens. I then stamped the sentiment also in black but left room in the middle for ribbon to be tied. I still don't seem to be able to tie the perfect knot which is frustrating. I would appreciate any pointers on that one. Thanks for looking.
