Happy St Patrick's Day and Blog Candy

Here are some new stamps just released from Sweet Impressions Stamps Their stamps are deeply etched red rubber stamps closely trimmed and mounted on cling mount, ready to use on your acrylic blocks.

I stamped the leprechaun on Cryogen white paper with Memento black ink, using these Copics:
Face - E00, E02
Beard - YR18
Jacket and hat band - YG03
Pants, hat, cuffs and lapels - YG09
Buckles - Y19
Boots - E35
Barrel - E43, E44
Beer - YR23
Foam - B00

I airbrushed YG05 around the shamrocks before I removed it from my Circle Nestabilities die. The DP is from Doodlebug Designs. Finished size is 5 3/8" square.

Now for a chance to win this great assortment of St. Patrick's Day cling mounted rubber stamps. Here is how the additional saying reads...

"For each petal on the shamrock
This brings a wish your way
Good health, good luck and happiness
For today and every day"

A solid shamrock stamp is included with this saying, plus the stamps I used to make my card. So leave a comment if you want a chance to win these stamps valued at $29 and I will draw a winning name on Monday night.

Hi Sandy -

I love your card and that Leprechaun. The more I see your work, the more I'm tempted to buy some Copic markers.

Love the stamp set that you've coloured perfectly to go with that gorgeous DP.
