15th March 2012

Goodness me, I am not very good at this blogging lark am I. I don't seem to be very consistent because other things keep getting in the way.The lovely weather that we have had recently means gardening and walking are very appealing. I am going to try to get down to doing some challenges starting with the Rainbow Lady one.I have been kindly asked to be a guest designer for this one and I must admit that I struggled with the topic but it isn't called a challenge for nothing. When I had finished it I got loads of ideas (isn't that always the case) but it was too late then

I used a white base card and  a lime green pearlescent mat (which doesn't show very well in the photograph) then a dark green top mat. The leprechaun was a free google image which I printed a few times and decoupaged. I fitted it onto a mat cut with a nestie. I put an edging down the spine cut with a MS punch and edged with green satin ribbon. I threaded the same ribbon down the opposite side of the dark green mat. I finished the decoration with shamrocks cut from a free download. In reality the shamrocks have been painted with lovely mica paint and show up in lovely pearlescent shades of green but unfortunately this doesn't show up in the picture
