Recoloring as Monochromatic Magic

Last week I decided it was time to get the color motivation going by taking on the weekly challenge at http://anchobee.com/blog. It took some courage to dive into my stash of what I describe as unhappy designs. Much to my amazement, it wasn't the design that was unhappy, it was the monotonous coloring of the original that had me thinking it was not the best. Recoloring in a monochromatic color scheme made the design read so much more interesting than the original.  The recoloring may even be a design seedling for a creating a collection.
Here's the before and after.
Let me know what you think. And thanks so much to Andrea at http://www.anchobee.com who is consistently on top of thinking up weekly design challenges along with everything else she does! Check out the weekly challenges...you just might surprise yourself.
