Happy St. Paddy’s Day!

It’s Wednesday, and I’m back to share this adorable little Leprechaun who is happily sitting on his pot of gold. My grandmother was Irish and so I’ve been celebrating St. Patrick’s Day since I was a little girl. My mom decorates the entire house with Shamrocks and Leprechauns each year to celebrate the occasion. LOL!

To create this card I used Lucky’s Pot O’ Gold – P030 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the main image and Fancy St. Paddy’s – G147 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment.

I stamped the image and then used Copic markers to colour in the image. For the rainbow, I used a circle from the My Creative Time dies as a stencil and the chisel side of the markers. Once coloured, I mounted all of the various papers and layers onto 5.5″ x 4.25″ card base. The edges were inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink – Mowed Lawn.
