WaltzingMouse Stamps Blog Hop




Wow...can't believe I actually finished this card! This is my very first blog hop for WM...actually my one and only blog hop for any stamp company. *grin*
Claire was so kind to post a download of WM images for those of us who haven't ordered her stamps as of yet. Thank you, Claire!
I did purchase her Celtic Lunettes patterned digi paper and I love the ease of ordering and printing.


I decided to color the shamrock image with my SU! watercolor crayons...love these! The Irish hankie that the shamrocks are wrapped was colored in a light cream to kinda replicate Irish linen. Not sure how well it shows. I chalked the edge of the oval that was cut/embossed with my Cuttlebug for just a bit of dimension.
The Irish Blessings was printed on vellum and added to the card with two gold brads. The green ribbon is PTI.
I'm quite please with how this card turned out.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wonderful card...why didn't I think of doing a background....not in your class! And have to mention the Belleek Pottery Parian China you've displayed...this stuff is made in County Fermanagh where I was born...thanks for reminding me of visits to see it being made and watching the artistic painters working so patiently.
