Serendipity: Monochrome Birdhouse

This week's challenge over at Serendipity Stamps is a Monochromatic theme.  So, I took this musical little bird and his house to create my card.  I started with the stamp image and added Graphic 45's music paper from their Botanical Collection.  I was hard for me not to add other colors, especially green! 

The image is heat embossed with black pigment ink and clear embossing powder then colored with Copics.  I used: E31, E33, E37, Y23, Y26 and the colorless blender.  I airbrushed around the image with several colors then went around it with the colorless blender to make it stand out.    Finished size is 5.5 x 5.5.  Here is the inside:
