Going Green

You Rock....Sham-Rock that is!

I've had the idea for this card in my head for a while now...and I was gonna post it on St. Patrick's Day...but I can't stand it!! I MUST SHARE NOW! LOL No willpower I tell ya! :)



I had so much fun making this one! I kept thinkin' DUDE...YOU ROCK! ha ha ha. I inked up the words on the "you rock!" stamp separately so I could write "sham" in there. Slicker than slick! OH!! OH!! I gotta tell ya about A Muse simple stick. See those little shamrocks - that's green glitter heat set with simple stick. I stamped the shamrocks with green pigment ink...sprinkled simple stick all over them...heat set till just till it got glossy...sprinkled that wonderful green glitter all over...hit it with the heat gun a 2nd time...and BAMM! Perfectly embossed glittered shamrocks. And ohhhh does it bling!

Speakin' of bling...check out that rocker dudes hair! A green glitter pen gave him that Sham-Rock shine :) He's also pickin' some glitter guitar strings. Rock On Dude!


I have another cool idea for a St. Patty's Day card...so if I have time I'll git-er-done & post it on Tuesday. No promises...but I'll try ;) I'm a busy woman ya know! ha ha ha ha
