Enjoy your day

Hello ,welcome to my room . Hope that you are all enjoying your day ,wherever you are  and whatever you are doing.
Sandra    recently sent me a blog award , thank you again Sandra
And I would like to share it with Curt. Now this is a blog that is well worth a visit . It is always packed with wonderful photos. Photos which draw you into his life,  his loves and his enviroment. That is apart from his amazing creations. Thank you for being you Curt, and for sharing so much of yourself.
Now onto my card for today which will be for workshop on Tuesday.
I want to show how to ground your image . That is just adding a little shading at base of image .
Now I think I need a lot more practice but I hope it inspires my ladies to try the technique too.

Cant wait for Michelle to get here to show me how to use my camera outside to take pics . Sorry about aweful photo . Perhaps Curt would share tips?
But hopefully you do get the idea . After I  had stamped images from set I won recently from annabelle stamps , Branch Out,  I used my watercolour pencils to shade under and connecting  each plant . Then with my aqua pen I " swiped  " over pencil colour to spread it to blend  into white card. Not quite as I have seen on better crafter's blogs , but I will practice . Got to start somewhere ..right?
All paper, ink  and cardstock is SU.
Catch you again soon , cheers Shirley-Anne
