Paper Trunk Tuesday!

I have a quick and easy project for you today. When I saw this Cotton Candy Paper from the Jelly Bean Collection, I thought it would be perfect for a St. Patricks Day Project. I stuffed this dollar store mug with a Shamrock Bath puffy and some sweet Chocolate and quickly fashioned a card to match!

I stamped the Good Luck Riley image directly onto certainly celery paper. I was unsure how the copics would work on the coloured cardstock. Although I could not get the same degree of shading and highlighting as on white Cardstock, I was rather pleased with the results. I coloured the Horseshoe in with a Pentel Zebra gold gel pen. The card Base is Certainly Celery and the accent colour Night of Navy. I used wide Olive Ribbon and Twisted a Prima Flower to fashion a Shamrock. Martha Stewart Border Punch, SU Tag punches and Circle Nesties were used to create this image.

Hope that you are enjoying my Paper Trunk feature..........please let me know what you think, if you likey.............I'll keep doing it!!!! Thanks a bunch for your feedback, it means a lot!!!!

Happy Stamping!

  4. Oooh, Riley better be careful, he may hurt himself. It's not good to balance on a horseshoe!! LOL!

    Awesome job on your Riley card. I just love the dp that you used. I went to Michaels yesterday and they had stacks of dps on sale but wow, I am proud of myself. . .I actually walked out without buying any. My daughter was with me so when I was looking at the DPs, she was giving me a disapproving look. She knows I collect the stuff like a mad woman. Arrrgh, that child spoiled it for me. LOL!

    As always, your coloring is awesome!!
