Happy St. Patrick's day to you!!
Yes, I know, don't let my last name fool you, I'm only Italian by marriage ;). So glad to be a part of Claire's blog hop on this particularly Irish day!
I absolutely LOVE my Waltzingmouse stamps, and really need to set some more time aside to play with them!
I thought I'd go with something masculine to challenge myself. I found it pretty easy with these stamps though -- so I thank you Claire!! I used the Celtic Heritage and the Irish Blessings sets, as well as some of that DELICIOUS new digital paper, the Celtic Squares. Um....LOVE IT! :)
Here's what I've got to share with you today:
I started out with a So Saffron base layer, and added some Olive Celtic Squares paper. Using that fabulous braid image from Irish Blessings, I stamped it down each side of the patterned paper in versamark, and used my detail gold EP on it. Then came the focal image. Stamped the sentiment in new leaf ink, and the lunettes in versamark, and embossed those as well. I then punched a piece of the Buttercup lunette paper with my SU! keytag punch (retired) and cut the shape in half -- just gluing the ends to the outer parts of the circle, to make it look longer in the back. Added some ribbon wrapped around the card, and that was that.
Wishing you all a wonderful year full of blessings!!
Thanks for stopping by -- now onto the next blog!!
