Green and Cream Somethings...

Happy Friday! This week at Stamp Something, we are celebrating St. Patrick's Day a wee bit early by challenging you to make something Green and Cream. Be sure to pop on over to the Stamp Something challenge blog to see what the rest of the dt has in store for you, and to see how you can enter to win a great prize from this week's sponsor:

For my project, I used the adorable Madelynn by The Greeting Farm. I thought she looked like the perfect little Irish lass for a St. Patrick's Day card.


Madelynn was colored with copic markers, and had some sparkle added to her coat and scarf with copic spica pens in clear and sand.  I airbrushed two plain white brads to match the scarf, and used them in place of her buttons for a little interest.


I actually made the flower embellishment for her hat myself. All you need is a flower punch, paper of your choice, a brad or eyelet, and some stickles. Go here to watch Shaz's fabulous video tutorial. The tutorial itself is wonderful, and the comic relief offered by her young daughter will have you in stitches.


Copic markers used:
