A Touch of Green


I went digging into my stash for some green dsp and found a few snippets to put this card together. I used a Tim Holtz crazy dog image, coloring him with Copics and fussy cutting him. The little banner was cut with a SU! framelit die, and pierced around the edges using a SU! piercing template. I connected the dots with a Tombow marker to make it show up better on the light green dsp. I stamped the sentiment in chocolate ink and added a tiny candy dot to the top. The chocolate borders were done with a SNSS scalloped border die. For the final touch, I added some glossy accents to his eyes for a little shine!


I'm sharing this with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge which is "A Bit O' Green"

I'm also sharing it with the Shopping our Stash SOS#294 - Luck O' the Irish - use green

Thanks for stopping by and may you enjoy a wonderful St. Patrick's day whether you're Irish or not. Wearing a little green today might bring you a little bit of good fortune, who knows? Sweet shamrocks to all of you!

Well, that is one special pooch for this day of wearing green! Good find on those bits of paper. That is one thing about these dogs, they sure do make folks smile. I have a green bow in my hair so I don't get pinched. Enjoy the rest of your Friday, before the next 2 rounds of slop come in.

Adorable card with this TH doggie and such fab eyes with the glossy accents! Lovely design and it's a brilliant idea using a marker for connecting the pierced dots on the cute tag! Thanks for the wishes! ;) Happy St. Patrik's day to you!
