Little Leprechaun

03/16/ 2020 Update: Favorite of the Week at Splitcoast Stampers for week ending 03/14/2020.

It's time for another biweekly color challenge at the Color My Heart Color Dare Blog. Challenge #385 uses a photo for inspiration, which includes a rainbow and plenty of the color green. (There is no requirement to include a St. Patrick's Day theme.)

The leprechaun image on my card was downloaded, resized, printed, colored with Copic markers and then fussy cut. The coins in the pot were colored with metallic gold ink along with the leprechaun's buttons and the buckle on his hat. Onto a white card base, I added two layers of cardstock along with some thin strips of cardstock representing a rainbow for the pot of gold. Wink of Stella was applied to the rainbow. The tree, cloud, grass and dragonfly were die cut. The sentiment was added and the inside was decorated with several tiny gold foil dragonflies.

Color My Heart Color Dare challenges begin weekly and last two weeks. Challenge #385 begins on Friday, March 13, and closes on Wednesday, March 25. For guidelines, visit the Color Dare blog and join us!
