LaLa Land Challenge - Monochrome with a touch of another color

This week at Lala Land Crafts, the challenge is Monochromatic with a splash of another color. I chose to use browns with a splash of metal/black. I tried to stick with mostly browns, as there are so many different shades, it made it kinda easier.
I used some papers from K&Company Jullienne stack, they have the most amazing brown papers, great patterns. I distressed all the papers with my Distrezz-it-all (LOVE that thing). I then paired the papers up with this adorable image, Pilot Luka, isnt he adorable?!!!
I colored him with copics
Skin - E21, E00, E000, E0000, R02
Hair - E25, E31, E50
Coat and Helmet - E44, E43, E42, E41, E40, E50
Dog - E57, E55, E53, E50
Box - E35, E33, E31, E50

I added some Tim Holtz Embellishments, as seemed fitting for a masculine card. I used Film Strip, a metal number, mini safety clip, mini paper clip, a journal ticket, and a metal stick charm saying "play".
I finished off the inside of the card with more of the design paper, and left lots of room for a personal note.
I hope you will pop over to LaLa Land Crafts and see what the rest of the design team has in store for you!
