Add Grass at Make It Colourful

Hi Peeps,

Yayy its Friday, my favourite day of the week and in particualr today as we are around friends for dinner tonight.

Today we have a new challenge at Make It Colourful which is to add grass.  I also posted my card on the Copic Marker Europe blog and also in case you didn't know, we now have challenges on the Copic Marker Europe blog where you could win 3 copic sketch markers, so definitely worth having a go.

I have these gorgeous papers by Prima and as usual I have matched my paper to my copic marker chart in order to find the colours that match the papers the best.  I have chosen many colours as I stamped this image with the intention of practicing with all these colours, but as I experimented I liked how it turned out so decided to use it for my card.


The image is one of the new fairies from Make it Crafty called Elven Samenah. My only regret is that I didn't make the digi image bigger but I had spent so much time playing with my copics adding the different colours that it was too late to do another image. I have also kept my design simpler to my usual style as the papers were so pretty that I didn't want to cover them up.


I experimented with the wings adding oranges, yellow and greens. 

I added in the grass by holding my pens upright and flicking in different directions and using different shades of the greens and the Yellow Greens.

Here's the copics that I used:-


I hope i've inspired you and look forward to reading your comments.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:-
Bloggers - Wings and Things
Fairytale - Something New
Craftuscrazy - Options but I have gone for anything new
My Mum's craft shop - Girls
Heartsong inspirations - Border punch or torn paper
