Kiss Me I'm Irish


Today's card is being entered into the following challenges:
#SSSIGCHALLENGE  - Spring Has Sprung
Simon Says: Use Some Green
Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #380 - Photo Inspiration
Color Throwdown #584
CAS Colours & Sketches Challenge #361 - Sketch

To create this fun card. I brought out my circle die cut. Next, I started by stamping the leprechaun. Then I colored the scene with colored pencils. When that was done, I blended the colors in with the Fantastix and baby oil. I then stamped the scene again on Post-It to create a mask. When the mask was done. I put the mask on top and blended the Mint ink on top to create a softer background for the leprechaun. I then popped the circle die with some foam tape. Before placing it down I grabbed the gold thread and wrapped it into a circle. I then placed the thread onto the card before adding the image. The background of the card and the striped designer paper are from my scrap pile.
