Good Luck Anya

Happy St Patrick's Day!

Here's a card I rustled up to celebrate the occasion - my daughter's boyfriend is Irish and she's spending the weekend in the Republic with his family, I hope they like it!

The image is a digi by The Greeting Farm called 'Good Luck Anya.'  I coloured her with Speccies and glittered the 4-leafed clovers/Shamrocks. The sentiment and row of hearts are also by TGF but I can't remember which sets they came from.

The papers are by Pink Petticoat, and I distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap DI. The flowers are Prima and the die-cut leaves are by Whiff of Joy. Ribbon and gems are from stash.

Nice and simple, eh? It took me a long time to make, mainly because my first two attempts at colouring Anya were really naff! I should practise with my Speccies more, the technique is slightly different than with Promarkers as they tend to be 'juicier'. We live and learn.

I hope you're all staying snug and dry. The rain has been stairrodding down this past two days here, though I know it's been snow further north and west. Brrr! Hurry up, Spring, I'm tired of winter!

I'm entering the new Ribbon Girl Challenge which is a colour combo of green and white

Thanks for looking, everyone, and have a great week!

love Mags B x
