Hello & good evening! Reminder to my USA friends, change that clock tonight. Daylight Savings Time starts tomorrow. I will be pleased to have longer evening daylight. Since we don't have little ones to get ready for school, I get up late anyway, the longer morning dark won't bother me at all.
Tonight's card is made with a precolored DeeDee's Digi, This Irish Blessing set is priced so inexpensively at $2.75 (for the non-EU residents) and has papers, sentiments, designs, and made a fast card this evening. Here goes:
Irish Blessing precolored digi printed twice. One image die cut with Lil Inker Stitched Circle. Fussy cut the 2nd one, did a little dimension with the stylus, added a bit of copic shading and some WoS. Popped it over the circle image. Used some gold sequins (Pot o'gold ya know) and then added 1 green sequin in the shamrocks. May have overdone the sequin thing, as it's not an embellishment I normally use.
-Background is made from Brusho crystals - BUT...it's the mop up piece from another effort. When the w/c paper gets spritzed after the crystals are sprinkled about, there's a good amount of 'run-off'. A shame to waste all this color, so what I have been doing is to blot with another piece of w/c c/stock. This time used a small brush and picked up the running colors and just swiped across a 2nd sheet of white w/c c/stock. It made a wonderful 2nd background, just not as intense as the 1st one (which you will see later). Oh I've had such fun experimenting lately.
- embossed this background with an EF. There's a shamrock EF living here somewhere, but do you think I could find it?
- added some lace, thin green ribbon. Most of which is covered up by the sentiment. The lace is thick enough that it makes a 'bubble' when attaching the front piece to the cardbase. Today's mail had some thin packing material wrapped around some bottles. I'm not sure what this stuff is called...it's much thinner than fun foam. Decided to add 2 layers to the card front before adhering to the base, and it lifted this piece up just enough so the lace doesn't make a bumpy spot.
- Sentiment font is a freebie from Dafonts.Com and computer generated. The capital letters have stylized design, which didn't show well, so used a green pen and darkened. Die cut with Lil Inker Square die, used a green pin to highlight the stitching. Shamrock in the top right corner covers a blob where I didn't get the stitch inked very neatly! :-) But I was going to have them on the square anyway...just had to place it strategically.
- MBox tiny shamrocks from a very teensy snippet of white c/s...colored with copics. Ain't they cute?
Hope you like this one, and will go check out this cute set over at DeeDee's Digi's. There are also some very nice Easter themed Digis available as well.
Thanks for visiting, hope you had a lovely Saturday. Ours was very sunny, gorgeous blue sky, in the low 60's, but didn't feel that warm to me. We had a most quiet day...read, took a nap, did NOT do any of the house chores which I should have. What more could one ask for a pleasant day?! Hugs.
