World's Cutest Leprechaun


Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Everyone is a little Irish today and in this house it's an extra special day because it's Kayne's Half Birthday!  I know that's not a real "thing" but we've been celebrating it every year and why not?  Life is too short not to have all the fun you can!  So for the occasion, I whipped up some rainbow cupcakes and a leprechaun card!  We also had a visit from a real leprechaun overnight too...  He left us Rolo filled pots of "gold"!

The image is called Leprechaun and is from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I shouldn't try to color when I am stressed, tired, or otherwise preoccupied because I screw things up that way!  Lol  I missed a shoe buckle and I mistook his ears for hair!  Oops!  Luckily, the small man is a wee bit less critical than I am!  The image is colored with Copics and cut using the Labels Sixteen Nestabilities (Spellbinders).  The heart banner is La-La-Land Crafts.  I created a rainbow out of strips of colored card stock.  The shamrock paper is from Recollections.  I added a pin and a Tim Holtz metal buckle as finishing touches.  The sketch is Mojo Monday (#389) which I flipped upside down.



Here is my little leprechaun:



Copics used: E00, E04, E11, E17, E19, E21, R20, Y28, N0, N2, N4, N6, N8, G03, G05, G07, G94, G99
