Luck 'O the Irish

Here's Bombshell Stamp's Lady Luck! She has all the traditional symbols of luck, I think you get luckier just by owning her! I used two of the stamps from the set, the gal herself, and the, "GOOD LUCK" banner.

I've had several comments about my coloring, and I can't tell you how pleased I am that someone would think my coloring good enough to ask about-so thank you! I use lots of different mediums, but the one I used on this card is very simple! I start with watercolor paper. I stamp the image in VersaMark and emboss with SU! Detail Black EP. Then I use markers to lay a bit of color where I want it. I only use one color at a time. Then I use a wet brush to pull the color around to where I want it. It's that simple! It helps if you give the wc paper a quick once over with a wet brush before you start. It makes the blending easier. I have about five different brands of markers, and all but the Zigs work well with this technique. Sometimes I even use nine year old Crayola markers, they are still going strong! In addition to Bombshell, I used product from a couple of other companies I enjoy.

The Bazzill card base and felt flowers are from Self-Addressed. They are a monthly kit club. I'm not a subscriber now, but I have been in the past, and I really enjoyed all the shipments I received. The gorgeous printed satin ribbon and Limeade Glimmer Mist is from The Embellishment Studio. I won a contest over there and will be Guest Designer in July. They are a monthly kit club, and sometimes they have VINTAGE stuff! They also get cool things from Etsy. Additionally, they have a gallery, and those girls rock the embellishments! They are more into scrapbooking-I won with my cards.
