Vintage Irish


Today I'm sharing fairly large card (5"x7") using the Vintage Irish stamp set from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  This sweet little boy was fussy cut out and colored with Copic markers.  Then various portions of his outfit were covered with Spirited Green glitter (the suspenders, the hat band, and the centers of the shamrocks).


The Shamrock Flourish is from Die Versions and is also covered with Spirited Green glitter.  Portions of the shamrocks were also colored with Copic markers for added depth.  You can check out the SNS tutorial on Coloring on Glitter here.

The sentiment is heat embossed with Irish Spring embossing powder and cut out using a MFT die (Sentiment Strips).


The tag was then layered onto solid cardstock that was dry embossed with the Dainty Dots M-Bossabilities folder from Spellbinders.  I adhered 1/4" Tear-ific Tape all around the edges and heat embossed with more Irish Spring embossing power.  This layer was adhered to the yellow card base and a touch of lace was added to the bottom.

Anne, I especially enjoy what you have done with this set - the greens are fresh and alive, and the textures in the gold tag and background are so pretty! The little lace is delicate and sweet, matching this little leprechaun's innocent expression. So pretty, and a wonderful design. hugs, de
