Running out of time for this week's challenge over on Linda's blog is to make Tim's alcohol ink plaid into a piece. This contest is sponsored by the wonder SimonSaysStamps. I needed a birthday card for my father-in-law, so went with a St. Patrick's day theme on my card. I am also using it for the green challenge over at Inspiration Emporium. Good thing we have these challenges or I would get nothing done at all. Used lots of greens in alcohol inks and a little black. I then used some recycled chipboard and also the packaging clear plastic from a die for my shamrocks. I painted the chipboard green with a dabber and then embossed the cler packaging and colored the high spots with a copic marker for contrast and layered with glossy accents, then pop-dotted off of card front, added the ribbon and layered it all together.
