From D&D Wiki
Path of stealth - ekitai kemuri
Ekitai Kemuri translates from the Japanese as Liquid Smoke, and that is exactly what you are trying to emulate. Your prowess with stealth equals (hopefully) that of a Rouge.
1st-Level Skill Bonus: Stealth
1st-Level Feat: Stealthy (PH 101).
2nd-Level Feat: instead of getting a feat, you get sneak attack +1d6,as the Rouge ability. this extra damage never increases, although it does stack with sneak attack damage that you already have or might get in the future.
6th-Level Feat: Mobility (PH 98) .
6th-Level Bonus Ability: you can use your Ki to create a few spell-like effects. These are not spells, but rather manifestations of your ki they are therefore not affected by an antimagic field,detect magic or any other such spell. You do not need to provide any of the spell components. Treat your effective caster level as one-half your Monk level, rounded down.
You can create a number of the following effects equal to your wisdom modifier per day, you must complete a resting period to regain the ability to create these abilities.

This spell alters the coloration of the recipient to match that of
the surrounding background. The creature gains a +10 circumstance
bonus on its Hide check. When moving through areas
where the background changes gradually (such as stepping
from the edge of a forest into a green field), the coloration
changes immediately. When the background changes abruptly
(from forest to gray stone wall), 1 round is required to effect the
change in coloration.
Material Component: The shed skin of a small lizard.
KNOW THE SHADOWS
Level: Shu 2 (Air)
Components: S, DF
Casting Time: 1 action
Duration: 1 minute/level (D)
You bend surrounding shadows and blend them to yourself, making yourself one with the darkness. As long as you remain within 10 feet of some kind of shadow (except your own shadow) or within at least moderate darkness, your ability to hide is greatly enhanced. You can hide yourself from view in the open without anything to hide behind, even while being observed, and you gain a +20 circumstance bonus on Hide checks. Unlike invisibility, this spell’s effects do not end when you attack, though you cannot hide and attack at the same time. You are clearly visible while attacking (and thus do not gain a +2 bonus on your attack for being invisible, nor is your target denied its Dexterity bonus to AC), but you can use a moveequivalent action to hide again after attacking (or hide as part of a move action), and you still gain the +20 circumstance bonus on your Hide check. Your opponent can ready an action to attack you when you come into view to attack.
