If you've just come the amazing Carissa Wiley's blog, then you're in the right place! Also, I never thought I would say that sentence. But let's not dwell on the surreal feeling of that.
Thanks for joining in the fun to celebrate Heffy Doodle's Release 3! I was just dying a little inside with cuteness overload when I saw the sketches for this release a long time ago.
Today I've got this colorful leprechaun card for your enjoyment. I never really thought of leprechauns and St. Patrick's Day as being great inspiration for cute cards, but these are totally adorable!
I started off by stamping the images from the Lucky Friends stamp set on to white cardstock. I colored the images with copic markers, used the matching dies and then set them aside.
Leprechauns immediately make me think of pots of gold, which then immediately make me think of RAINBOWS--how about you?! Because I knew I wanted to incorporate a rainbow into this card, I was searching for a creative way to do that.
Enter the Stitched Strips of Ease dies! They make PERFECT rainbow strips!
I colored the stitched strips of ease with my copic markers and then glued them to my card base.
After I had my diagonal rainbow going on, I mounted my leprechaun images on to some foam tape and then placed them on my card base so that it looked like the leprechaun was sitting on top of the rainbow with all his gold next to him!
I finished off the card by stamping my sentiment on to the card base in black ink. I noticed that my leprechaun looked a little flat, so I added some details to his hat and his socks with a white gel pen.
Ok, I know you guys just skimmed this post to get to the good stuff, so I won't keep you in suspense any longer.
