It's time for the...
The theme this month is appropos. WMS is a small homebased stamp company located in Ireland. So the month of March brings the theme St. Patrick's Day / Irish. I chose to use a WMS free digital image that I downloaded and printed out last year when I had the best of intentions to join the party. One year later, I got around to using it. It's a lovely bouquet of shamrocks. I have left off a sentiment so I can use this for any occasion.
I coloured the image with Copics. The background is stamped repeatedly with a WMS border stamp, a sort of rattan weave. I stamped in pale mauve chalk ink and then overstamped in darker purple chalk ink. Then I sponged the same ink around the edges. A 1/16 inch mat of dark green echoed the label frame. I made a slit in the fold of the card for the sheer ribbon to thread through. This is my first attempt at making some pretty stick pins. I recycled some old costume jewellery for the beads.
There's still time to join the party. Head over to the WMS blog and link up your creation. Thanks for stopping by!
