Go Green!

Well, I don't have an ounce of Irish in me - at least not that I know of ;-), yet, for one day, we can all raise our glasses and hope that a little bit of luck is headed our way! That's why the Impression Obsession DT joined forces to get you seeing green!

This darling image is one of the new releases from Leigh Hannan called Clover Tree! Isn't it sweet? My daughter exclaimed that she needed a tree like that -- one that grows luck and money. Honey -- don't we all???

I stamped the image in permanent black ink and then went about coloring it with Copic markers. The tree was done with Yellow Green, and Nile Green. The trunk was colored with Sepia and then the stars were shaded with two shades of yellow. The entire image was also shaded with Cool Grey #1 and Warm Grey #1. The pot was colored with watercolor pencils and blended with a blender pen. Add some lime green accents with a Tombow (I used the Tombow fine tip for those teeny leaves and berries). Then, I went over parts of my image - the coins, the "berries" and the centers of my lucky clover with my Copic Spica pens to give it some glimmer!

Want a closer peek?After that, do a little paper piercing, mat it up, add a fun tag with the Impression Obsession Mini Messages set, add some fun scraps of decorative paper and a matching ribbon and ..... VOILA! Done!

There is a good reason to check out the Impression Obsession Webstore this weekend! The company's owner, Mitra, is lowering the free shipping threshold from $100 to $30. So, if there are stamps you've been waiting to buy-- there's no time like the present! This special promotion will run from 8:00 am (EST) Friday, March 6 through midnight on Sunday, March 8.
