Happy St. Patrick's Day

A little early but there are a few challenges with luck/St Patrick's Day as the theme for this coming week/fortnight including Fusion and Addicted to CAS.

I started this card by stamping the little fox come leprechaun first then with a stamping block I drew pencil markers on it to avoid the image and coloured the green and orange with Zig watercolour pens direct to the stamp block then spritzed with a generous amount of water.  I cleaned off the excess water in the 'white space', masked the fox (just in case) and stamped to create the Irish flag.  Now because the middle stripe is white, it looked a little odd so I made my own stencil using a tiny heart die and hand drew the stalk, cut out with a sharp knife and sponged little shamrocks falling down.

The fox was coloured using alcohol markers, to lift the card a bit I added some Wink to each one of the shamrocks, coloured some white pearls in Sharpie black and finished off with the sentiment.
