Good luck!

Hello everyone,

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:

Why not play along with us this week. Just remember: no digi's and only one entry per person per challenge... Good luck ! :o)

  1. This is great Corrie, your gnome looks very 'Irish' with his red hair & beard!
    Like you, I'm going to have to put my 'thinking cap on' if I want to play along with this challenge - this will certainly get the gray cells working!
