Good morning. I’m not sure where Saturday went but Sunday looks like it might be a good one. Although it’s still cold, there is the prospect of the sun coming out to play so Mr Beez and I are going to venture a little further for our daily walk.
Now I’ll be honest and tell you that this is went through many modifications before I was happy with the end result and a lot four leafed clovers are lying around on my craft space floor, not to mention Agatha dressed up as a shamrock! I used green distress inks – Crushed Olive, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn and, of course, Lucky Clover – to create the background, spritzing with a little water to create a mottled effect. Using the same inks, I added a little random stamping.
I used Agatha Star and one of the 3 Dwarfy Gnomes, stamping them directly on to the background and then paper piecing a second. The lucky balloons were punched using Tim Holtz’ clover paper punch. The words are printed from my computer.
I’m also sharing this over at City Crafter Challenge Blog for their “Make it Green” challenge.
Now, I feel a bit sad about my shamrock Agatha, even though I didn’t feel she looked quite right – would you like to take a little look?
Thanks for buzzing by.
