Magical Green Watercolored Texture Paste

Happy St. Patrick's Day. No pinchin' here :)

This card is LOADED with green. I made the textured background with a stencil and texture paste on a panel of watercolor cardstock. Once it was completely dry, I painted on the panel with Spectrum Aqua Watercolor Markers (Lime, Moss and Bud Green). Then I spayed the entire panel with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz.

The images are stamped and colored with Spectrum Noir Markers. Normally I would color this dude with red hair, but this time I decided to go black for a change of pace. I painted the over the clovers, grass hills, hat and shoe buckles with Sparkle Shimmer. There's 1 little green rhinestone is in the center of the 4 leaf clover that is being held. To make the sentiment panel, I stamped the shamrock with Memento New Sprout Ink and then stamped the sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black.  The clouds are stamped and paper pieced with gingham patterned paper. FUN!
