Happy St. Patrick's Day for Mojo Monday!

I had this image stamped all week-end and was trying to find a sketch to fit the big image. (The basket is from Alota) Then I looked over at Mojo Monday and I thought this was the perfect sketch.Can you handle all the green? (LOL) To go with the green I went with the obvious choice of gold but then I had the hardest time getting a good picture. I sprayed the whole thing with glimmer mist before I put my Tilda on and now it looks yellow! But it is gold and shiny in real life! To make her striped tights appear to have gold I colored in some stripes with brushed corduroy and then colored over it with a clear glitter pen.

Paper: K & Co.
Inks: Distress Inks, Brilliance Gold, glitter pen
Accessories: Twine and button ~ stash, ribbon ~ Wal-mart


Well I am off to paint Lauren's fingernails green! (LOL) I hope everyone has a fabulous day and that the sun is shining where you are!!!
