Make It Colourful - Blades of Grass


It's time for a new challenge over at Make it Colouful - our first for 2012 - and we're asking you to create "Blades of Grass". This means you need an outdoor scene to play with - unlike me who put together a water scene first - DOH - WHERE was I going to put GRASS - LOL.

I ended up creating this scene using 3 digi images from Make it Crafty - Sophie Day Dreaming, Sapphire Sitting Fairy and the Fairy Chair. The blades of grass were 'flicked' in using 4 different shades of green - starting with the lightest shade. I then 'grounded' the grass by adding some flecks of earth tones for dirt.

Don't forget to check out the AMAZING inspiration from the rest of the MiC DT over in our GALLERY - and you'll need to enter your grassy creation there too.

Copics used - Skintones (R20, R11, E11, E00, E000) plus E50, E43, E42, E41, E40, E33, E18, E17, E15, E13, G28, YG67, YG63, YG61, RV63, RV55, RV10, RV000, B97, B95, B93, B91, B0000, C4, C2, C00, YR65, YR16, Y23, Y21, Y19, Y11, Y00, Y0000
