Weekly Challenge | St. Patrick's Day Projects

It's time for a new challenge with Digital Delights by Louby Loo! This week at Delightful Challenges we are making St. Patrick's Day Projects --one of my favorite crafty holidays!! For this challenge I chose to combine two images using GIMP. I printed my completed image out on watercolor paper and painted the image with Sakura 3D Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul's Mixers (more on that in another post). I chose some of the yummy new Spring has Sprung Paper Pack for my background papers which match awesomely with last Spring's release of St. Patrick's Day Paper Pack. I hope you enjoy my card!
Happy St. Patrick's Day with Larry!

for this card you will need:
Card Stock: Bazzill Basics
Ink: SU River Rock
Accessories: Ribbon, silk flowers & premade butterfly, Watercolor Paper, Sakura Hobby Crafts 3D Crystal Lacquer and Terri Sproul's Mixers (Gold Shimmer, Gold Dust, Citrine Pearl, Tanzanite Pearl, Shimmer Red, Bronze) and Enhancer. 
Closeup: The Images were combined in GIMP and then
colored completely with  Mixers and Lacquer...Some mixers
were combined to make certain colors. Come back to my blog
next week for a tutorial on color theory with the Mixers!
Color swatch for my project notebook--whenever I experiment
with mixing colors of things, I always make a few notes so that
I can at a future date replicate a color or texture or such...
