More grasses...

Good morning everyone,

I hope you are having a good weekend - definitely a touch of spring in the air here today... but as my Mum has been telling me every year for the last 50 years (or so...!) 'It snowed on the day you were born'  My birthday is on Wednesday, so we're not out of the woods yet!
However, today is lovely...

Today's card is another one using the wonderful set of grasses stamps
I started with card that was slightly coloured green, I found it in my stash and think it must have been a 'mop up' piece
I masked off the strip across the centre, then stamped the various grasses in various colours along the border.  I squished the ink onto a glass mat and added a touch of water, then dipped the stamp in and stamped, so it is a slightly blurry image.
Once that was done I removed the mask, protected the bottom edge and stamped the grasses with archival ink, then coloured in using the same colours I'd used for the other part.  I added a thin black line top and bottom of the strip for definition.

I'm off out for a family lunch today, hope you have a lovely time whatever you are doing,  thanks for visiting.
