DT Day at Meljens Designs - St. Patricks.

Maybe a day late for St. Patrick's Day.. but today is my DT Day at Meljens Designs and I've decided to share some St. Patrick's Day love anyway :)  There are some amazing Meljens images for St. Patrick's Day... new and old!!

I decided to try one of those boxes that I've seen everywhere!! Here it is:







For the images I have used Dancing Leprechaun, Little Shamrocks, Luck O the Irish and St. Patrick's Cupcake.

I used my Copic markers to color the images. I inked around the edges of some. All of the papers are scraps that I have been working on for other projects. the images were decoupaged... I tried to show you which ones. I also added the ribbons and the gems. I love how this thing folds up to fit in an envelope. Its really great!

Copic Markers:
  • Shamrocks:
    • Green: YG21, YG23, YG25, YG67
    • Cheeks: R20, R22
  • Lephrechaun:
    • Green Clothes: G40, G43, G46
    • Clover: YG21, YG23, YG67
    • Skin: E000, E00, E02, E11
    • Beard: Y21, YR12, YR14, E15, E18
    • Vest: Y00, Y11, Y15, YR24
    • Cheek: R20, R22
    • Black: C3, C5, C7, C9
  • Luck O' The Irish:
    • Lettering: YG03, YG07, YG97
    • Shamrock: YG21, YG23, YG25, YG67
  • St. Patrick's Cupcake:
    • Shamrocks and Ribbons: YG21, YG23, YG25, YG67
