Let the Shenanigans Begin
Today, I’m sharing this fun Shamrock Gnome (KLM Digital Designs) who is enjoying his lucky 4-leaf clover! My mom’s family is part Irish and so St. Patty’s Day is always celebrated in our home. Let’s hope this little Gnome spreads some luck for everyone.
I printed out the image with my HP Printer onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using Grayscale. Then I die cut the image with Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set. I coloured in the image with Copic markers and then attached the die cut back over top of the image. This allowed me to create the background and leave a white border all around the image.
Next, I printed out both sentiments using Black ink only. I glued the background paper and ribbon onto a base of 4″ x 5.25″. I inked around the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Inks – Lucky Clover and then pasted everything onto a 4.25″ x 5.5″ card base. Lastly, I popped up the coloured image and sentiments with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape.
