Happy St. Patrick's Day my friends! Anyone having corned beef and cabbage? Attending a parade? Drinking green beer?
I am not Irish, but I think everyone has a little bit in them right? ;)
I have a card celebrating today using Whimsy Stamp's Beaucoup Bouquet stamp set.
I stamped the flowers and leaves randomly on green paper. I colored them using Prisma Colored Pencils. I took white paint and splattered it across the paper.
I used Spellbinder's heart dies to cut 3 small hearts to create a Shamrock. I hand cut a stem and gave it a bit of depth using Distress Ink in Twisted Citron. I wanted something for the center of the Shamrock, so I thought a flower and leaves using the Peony die set was perfect. I used glossy accents on the outer edges of each heart and sprinkled it with Glamour Dust.
For the background I used an old embossing folder I had in my stash to add a bit of interest and texture. I used the Smile Word die for my sentiment. I inked the top of the letters a bit using Tim Holtz' Distress Ink in Twisted Citron. Then coated it with glossy accents and Glamour Dust.
I assembled the card adhering everything in place. I added a few rhinestones and clear droplets from the Sparkletz Lucky Charms collection.
I hope you all have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!!
