Lots O' Luck

Here is one of the new image from D2D, "Wee Bit & Lots of Luck" .  It is a set that comes with lots of different images.  I used the "Lots of Luck"...hence lots of shamrocks in the jar, one of the sentiments and a shamrock.  I colored the shamrocks with a combination of Copics and colored pencils/OMS.  This seems to be my coloring technique lately.  The patterned paper is from The Guy Stack by DCWV.  Perfect plaid for St. Patrick's Day.  I used an Argyle embossing folder that is edged with a Zig Zag Chain punch and added a green gemstone to the center of the shamrock on the sentiment.  Actually....this is a little hint...use your Copics to color a clear gemstone the color of your choice.  Instead of buying every color of gemstone, just buy the clear ones and color them!! 

Go on over to the D2D Store and check out all the great new Spring images.  Stop by the D2D's Card-Ideas Blog for some great designs.
