Leprechaun Bear

 A dear sweet friend asked me to make cards for her two boys for St. Patrick's Day . . . here is one of the cards using Rick St. Dennis Leprechaun Bear which can be found at I Brake for Stamps but it is a rubber stamp which I purchased on eBay at least 2 years ago - complete with coins in his pot of gold and a feather in his hat:

  • card is size A2 with green plaid scraps for background
  • image was colored with Whisper Strokes and Spectrum Noir Markers, Prisma Colored Pencils, gel pen accents and fussy cut around the edges
  • feather added to cap
  • Darice tiny gold coins for his pot of gold and one coin in his paw
  • grass was cut using another plaid and EK border punch
  • sentiment is an Irish blessing which was chalked around the edges on coordinating paper

I appreciate and love reading your comments - and hoping you leave me some bloggie love.  

Much love, hugs, and friendship
