TMITA Pot of Gold
This card is for the challenge over at There's Magic in the Air/Paper Cupcakes. Nina is giving us the image to play with and the challenge is to use metal along with the colors green and gold. Well, my metal is in the ribbon and the glittery gold cardstock. Sentiment is from Stampin' Up "A Little Birdie Told Me" and is embossed in gold, punched with SU small oval punch, and adhered to the Spellbinders Ribbon Tag Trio. Then, that is attached to the card with a "golden thread" (lol). Please forgive Mr. Leprachaun's face -- I messed up a bit trying to color his beard. Got brown on his face and didn't like brown after all -- it needed to be gray. Think I fiddled too much trying to get the brown off his face (first with WhiteOut which didn't work, then with a white pen) Finally, colored his face with a Bic marker (which I used on the entire image as well) and was "sorta" okay with it! Also had another Oops -- the gold pen I used to color the coins in the pot covered all the coin outlines -- drew them in with pen but they seemed to disappear. Finally decided to gold emboss them. My card looks okay as long as you don't click on it to make it larger!! Be kind, ok? Found some coins from our travels (Indonesia, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, The Netherlands) to add to the photo.
