The challenge specifications were to use rainbow OR a monochromatic green color scheme and they wanted to see us add a touch of gold to our project.
I created this Luck of the Irish ensemble pretty much the same way as I created my previous ones, accept that I added several little touches of gold. I did my BG as I did previously, this one I chose to use the Hero Arts Friends Definition stamp and then I stamped over it with little shamrocks from the Flourishes' Irish Blessings stamp set with gold pigment ink. I used my Cricut to cut my Shamrocks using the Celebrate with Flourish cartridge and my Ovals with the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge as I did before, but this time I edged most of my pieces with my Sakura Gold Metallic jellyroll pen before layering them together. I also created an extra cute little shamrock charm edged with gold and covered with gold glitter glue to tie together with a fun little gold bow to my Impression Obsession sentiment.
Here's a another little shot of my card that shows off a bit more of the gold touches and gold glitter. I know it's still hard to see but it looks really great in person. One of the things on my to do list is to invest in a good digital camera. Believe it or not, I am kind of embarrassed to say so, but all of my blog pictures are taken with my cell phone. I know, crazy huh?.. 8-)
