Happy St. Patty's Day

My mom got this adorable stamp at Hobby Lobby and I asked her to stamp me out a few images to play with. Thanks mom!!! My layout is this week's sketch challenge. Another great one!! I asked my mom to stamp him on watercolor paper so I could color him in with SU markers and an aquapainter. He is so fun to color!!! or maybe that's just me. I've always loved coloring. I listed the markers that were used below. The buckles and buttons were colored with a So Saffron marker, then I went over them with a Sakura Stardust pen. Turned everything a nice gold color and you can't be a leprechaun without a touch of gold on ya!!! After I did that, I knew I have to add some gold brads. Don't they look like little gold coins? It's hard to see in the photo, but the Saffron background is stamped with Linen. I found this sentiment at Hobby Lobby. Do you know how hard it is to find a St. Patty's day sentiment? I've been searching for weeks and finally settled for this one. I stamped it in Palette Burnt umber, then stamped it again on Old Olive cardstock so I could cut out the little clover. Happy Staming!!!!
