Hostess Monday with Digital Delights


My Grass
I thought I would share with you how I colour the grass in my images ...I got the idea from a tutorial on Pops Blog  some time ago, so thanks Pops
I start with three colours  Tea Green-Forest Green-Pear Green,
starting with pear green I just flick upwards with my marker,

I then go in with forest green still flicking up

 Finally finish with Tea Green filling all white spaces.



In this photo I have filled in the sky with chalk and used a spellbinder die
to cut an oval

And this is my finished card.I do hope you like it.xxx
