For this week's Stampotique Designers' Challenge the theme is St. Patrick's Day and it was set by Jackie. This is what she had to say about her challenge:
'St. Patrick's Day was lucky for me. I married my husband on this date so I would like to see the luck of the Irish in your project such as lucky clovers.'
Well... Happy anniversary, Jackie !
I must say I struggled with this one as St. Patrick's Day is not celebrated in Holland. So I googled it and came up with this "
This 'good luck' card was started with stamping the 'clover' which is made out of 3 'My heart' stamp images. I drew the stem. I coloured the hearts with Copic Markers and cut them out. Next I stamped one of the '3 dwarfy gnomes' without his pointy hat. I masked the hat of with sticky tape. Just don't forget to remove the sticky tape before stamping... I found this top hat in my stash, I drew it ages ago for another project and used it as a template to draw another one. I love the fact that it is really to big for him. lol
I then coloured the gnome and the hat with Copic Markers too, making sure to use a different shade of green.
Next I took a piece of pattern paper from my stash and brayered some white acrylic paint in the middle. I did this so the images would stand out a little better. Next I glued down the hearts forming a clover and the stem. I attached the top hat to the gnome's head and then adhered the gnome on the panel too. I used a coloured pencil to ground him. With the 'Typewriter Alpha Stamps' I made the sentiment. I cut out all the letters separately and drew a little black line around the pieces of card stock. I then adhered the letters to the card panel. Next I cut a mat our of black card stock, and adhered the panel to it. The whole thing was then adhered to a 5"x7" card.
That was it.
I used the following stamps:
