Color Me Copic Challenge #2--Kim's Grass Tutorial

The second challenge at Color Me Copic is to make a card and grow some grass alá Kim and her coloring tutorial here. I decided to use The Greeting Farm's Izzy again--she's my favorite Twinkle Tot--and make a sepia toned card. Pure laziness on my part.

After coloring her, I cut out the image with the Nestabilities Labels Eight die. I followed Kim's tutorial and made the grass a little taller.

I used some October Afternoon papers and finished it off with some red grosgrain ribbon. No sentiment was used so that I can use the card for whatever occasion later.

♥♥♥

And thanks to all who hopped along with the Lawn Fawn 's Cards For Kids blog hop! There were so many wonderful cards and projects and I love how some bloggers got their kids get involved, too. Such a feel good event!

  11. You did a great job on the grass! I saw that tutorial and haven't tried it yet but it doesn't seem that hard, but you can get great effects. Love how you did it all in brown too.
