Happy St. Patrick's Day

Hi everyone in a few days it will be St. Patrick's day so today I have a card to share for you. If you have been following my blog you know I like to play and do different things. For this card I used a print I on fabric created with my Gelli plate for the background.

The Gelli print didn't turn out like I had planned. I had stamped into my coat of paint but the stamped images didn't really turn out those are the ghost  shamrock images. I decided to see about stamping with the Just For Fun shamrock stamp using paint. I love how it turned out  and will be using paint again with stamps on fabric. After the paint was dry I painted with the dark green I used for the shamrocks a frame.

I cut out the tag and used another Just For Fun stamp. I edged the tag with gold ink and colored the Celtic images with a glaze pen.

I think my clipart image is from a Dover Sampler as I could not find it at Graphic Fairy. Graphic Fairy does have some similar images you could use. I turned her into a print and cut and after she was cut out edged the image with black ink. She is then pop dotted onto the card.

There you have it my St. Patrick's card. Do you create cards for St. Patrick's day? If you have a Gelli Plate have you tried pulling prints on fabric?

Happy St. Patrick's Day! May the luck of the Irish be with you. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!
