Irish Eyes

Happy Thursday!

I think it's probably true when people say "Everyone's Irish on St. Patrick's Day". How you could not love shamrocks and singing and parades and beer and all that GREEN? Maybe even green beer, lol. Coming from an Irish family (on my mom's side), I can definitely say that the greeting on my card is true! I think they all have a piece of the blarney stone in their pockets.

For my background, I drew a simple grid with a black sharpie, then drew over the lines with a couple of green waterbased markers and a blender to spread out the color. I stamped the Hatfull of Shamrocks twice, colored them with markers and cut out some of the shamrocks and attached them onto the base image for a little dimension. I cut a buckle out of a scrap of metallic gold and attached it.

The clover sprigs were also colored and cut out. I die cut three solid hearts out of a sheet of glitter foam and arranged them behind the clover sprig. The greeting was stamped twice (so I could split it), the corners rounded and then edged with markers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! All this green is sure to have those Irish eyes smiling!
