Lucky ShamrockGood Evening All

Well as Christmas is now over I decided that today I would make a card for a colleague of mine, who has chosen to venture onto pastures new in the New Year.

I have used the current Mojo Monday challenge layout on a 5×7 card base.  The paisley background paper is from My Minds Eye Bloom & Grow collection and this has been matted and layered onto some dark green cardstock and some gold mirri card.  The large shamrock shape has been made using 4 heart shaped dies, which when stuck together give the appearance of a 4 leaf clover – at least I thought so!

The image is from Stampendous and I stamped her using Black Memento and then coloured her with my new Spectrum Noirs, which my Mum bought me for Christmas 😀  I have cut her out and mounted her onto the shamrock using 3d foam pads.

The cogs have been cut using spellbinder dies, and the little shamrock is a Sizzix die to which I’ve added the Good Luck peel off.  Not quite a true steampunk style card, but it’s a start!

I’m still learning how to use the Spectrum Noirs correctly, haven’t managed to fully watch the DVD that came with them yet – all in good time, still got a week before I need to think about work 🙂

Anyway, that’s all for now, but I’ll be back again soon
