Joanne Schempp - Irish Chic

At the moment in the Sweet Pea Stamps Shop there is a Digi Sale on Easter, St Patrick's Day and Steampunk images whereby you get 20% off.
 Here is a card I have made using Joanne Schempp's image called "Irish Chic".  It is available as a digital stamp (and as mentioned above it's got 20% off at the moment) and as a rubber stamp.
I wanted to keep the colour scheme to green so used my Promarkers as I have virtually all of the greens.  I have inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Peeler Paint distress ink and layered the image onto a tag.  I made the four leaf clover template myself and then drew around it onto the papers I printed out from Bearly Mine Designs.
The green spotty paper I used is from the Bearly Mine "Mini Dots" Collection and the green crumpled looking papers is from the Bearly Mine "The Boy's Zone" Collection.  Around the crumpled paper layer I distressed with a pair of scissors as my Tim Holtz couldn't get into all the nooks and crannies.  I have used a Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die for the large and small flowers which I have cut out from a book and coloured with my Bright Green and Grass Promarkers.

I have finished the card off with some fibres, card candi, sentiment, buttons, pearl dots, cheesecloth, pearls and a charm with memory wire threaded through.
