Knowing that St. Paddy's Day is coming up very soon - I thought it would be fun to create a fun little scene for this holiday. I usually don't make any cards for St. Patrick's Day - but I wanted to play with the new die I mentioned, and see what I could do with it. I struggled for a little bit on it, simply because even though I have little fingers, when I have to works with small details, I am "clumsy" and spend more time messing with it. So - instead of using the card stock I had originally cut out, I remembered that I bought a new 6x6 DCWV stack with Adhesive Fabric. So I cut out the rainbow ( and it would stay together a bit better, because it has a paper backing on it) and picked out some Copic Markers, and very carefully colored my rainbow. Since this is fabric, the ink transfers fast, and "bleeds" so I had to be careful with it. Once the fabric rainbow was colored, I die cut two clouds also from MFT. I then grabbed some of my gold glitter paper from American Crafts and used my "On the meadow" dies from PTI, and die cut a piece of gold, and some paper from the "The Bright Side" Lawn Fawn Collection.
The cloud pattern paper comes from a new 6x6 pad from Crate Paper/Maggie Holmes collection. LOVE this paper!! So realistic and pretty! I, then stamped out my "Leprechaun" which is the gnome from "Gnome Sweet Gnome" and added a "Leprechaun" hat from "Hats Off to You". I did some quick Copic coloring and paper-pieced his shirt.
For my sentiment - I used "A Birdie Told Me", and the "Happy St. Patrick's Day" sentiment from "Hat's Off to You". I then started assembling my card and really like how it turned out. It has texture from the gold glitter paper, and from the fabric of the rainbow. Here is a closer look at the rainbow's texture.
Thanks for stopping by!! See you all soon!!
