Open-Minded Crafting Fun March Challenge #3 -- St. Patrick's Day / Good Luck

Good morning everyone! And a very happy Thursday! This week has been a busy week at work so far, but I have gotten a lot done. There has been lacrosse practice, but no games since Monday. They have a tournament this weekend though. Hoping for a quiet weekend other than that. Have a great Thursday and rest of your week!! 

Today is the 10th and it is our third (3rd) challenge at Open-Minded Crafting Fun. This month we have a challenge of St. Patrick's Day or Good Luck. We have some great sponsors for March. Here they are with a HUGE thank you from all of us! Thank you so very much!

And here is my creation:

For this card I wanted to get away from St. Patty's and away from green to show we want to see all kinds of good luck creations. So, I went with red and black using this amazing KennyK Stamps image - Happy Hour. I've cut around the image with a My Favorite Things die. I've added some black ink slightly around the edge. I've added some twine and pearls. The Good Luck is stamped.I've used a negative cut on the inside and added some black and white pearls to bring it all together. The image was colored using my Copic markers.

Copic Markers Used:
  • Skin: E000, E21, E11, E04, R20
  • Dress: C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, C9; R20, R22, R24, R29
  • Eyes: YG03, YG07, YG17
  • Martini: YG01, YG03
