Guest Designer for MarkerPop

Happy Sunday everyone.  Today I am sharing a card I created as the guest designer for challenge #116 at MarkerPop.  The theme is Lucky Pot of Gold and here’s the inspiration graphic.



And here’s my card



I don’t make and celebrate St. Patrick’s day so I made a friendship card instead. The pot of gold, face and sentiment were stamped.  All other elements are diecuts.  To start, I stamped the pot of gold with Intense Black ink on X-press It paper, then fussy cut it out.  Next, I masked the bottom half of a white A2 piece of cardstock and using a DIY diecut ray stencil, I blended Twisted Citron for the background.  I die cut the rainbow, hat, beer, arms and clover leaf from X-press It paper as well and coloured with Copics, giving them a no-line colouring look.



Next I adhered the rainbow and pot of gold to the panel then die cut it with a stitched rectangle die.  For some dimension and interest, I did the camouflage die cut technique using NBUS Stitched Scallop Rectangle Frames.  I die cut two more frames to stack them.



I stamped the face onto the clover and the sentiment inside the frame. To finish, I added clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle to the clover and gold coins and glossy accents to the beer mug.  Join in the fun and link up your Irish inspired creations for a chance to win a pack of X-Press It cardstock.
