Got grass?


Okay, maybe that's not the best title for a post but I tried growing some grass on my card for the first time!  I usually "ground" the image by coloring some shadow underneath but I wanted to try grass after seeing Kim's tutorial here.



After coloring sweet Nahla from The Greeting Farm's Roll Call set, I cut her out with the circle Nestabilities.







I followed Kim's instructions and I didn't have the exact colors that she used, but I followed her technique which was clear and concise.







I paired up the image with Basic Grey's Green at Heart patterned paper and used Pam's Saturday Sketch #26.

I'll have to try this again and use more olive green Copics to match the paper better.

Thanks, Kim, for a great tutorial and sharing a fun technique!

Stamp: The Greeting Farm
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink, Stampin Up
Patterned paper: Basic Grey
Ink: Memento 
Other: Copics, Nestabilities, pop dots
