Luck of The Irish


Pin It
Hi everyone,

Our sponsor at 613 Ave Create this week  is The Stamping Boutique and the theme is use an Irish blessing/saying or quote. When I saw this adorable fairy I could see so many uses for her. Can you imagine using hearts, ornaments, Easter eggs, etc. She is called Daisy fairy and for an Irish theme I wanted four leaf clovers.  I made the leaves big enough to cover the daisy's. The card base is neenah cs and the DSP is from American Crafts Lucky Charms paper pad.  I printed the image onto neenah cs and colored it with copic markers. E00,000,21, 13,15,18, YG 61,63,67,95. I had this Irish hat clip art so I recolored it with my copics and fussy cut it to make paper layers. I them added green and yellow glitter pen ink from the MS pens. The sentiment is one I printed in MS Word. The lighting needs to be replaced or more added into my craft room. When I choose to used this ribbon it matched my colors beautifully. Well as you can see in the photo it is a different shade. I have it glued down so I wasn't prepared to replace it if I messed up the card. I decided it really didn't look that bad. I will just have to shop for a new light fixture.  I will enter this card into these challenges.
