Hi Everyone! As Jen del Muro's February Guest Designer at iheart2stamp, I am here today to share my sample of this week's Sketch For You To Try. Please be sure to visit Jen's site for complete details, as she is offering a huge prize package to one lucky participant.Here is my take on this week's awesome sketch:I made this Happy St. Patrick's Day card for my son's sweet red headed, Irish girlfriend April :) Here is April in the photo below all dressed up in her Irish dancing outfit - wig & all! When I lived in Buffalo, NY - there was the Annual St. Patty's Day parade & it seemed like the entire city would shut down, all the bars sold GREEN beer & the restaurants served Corned Beef & Cabbage! As the saying goes "Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!"You can imagine how happy I was to find this sweet Hampton Art "happy St. Patrick's Day" stamp in the $1 bin at my local craft store :) Who doesn't love a bargain?After stamping the 4 leaf clover image & coloring it with the various Copic Markers mentioned below, I cut the out with a super sharp scissors & curled the edges a smidgen for a 3-D effect! I would love to know if you celebrate St. Patrick's Day?
That's all I have for today, I hope you can play along with Jen's fun sketch! Please be sure to visit Jen & the SFYTT DT to see what ALL the girls have created for inspiration: Amy Rohl, Amy Sheffer, Leigh O’Brien, Susan Liles & Kelly Lunceford. Be Sweet!
