At least for today!

Worked on a project for Bella Creations for the March "Bella Muse" challenge. The challenge was to use this vintage image of a smiling woman with cherries in her month. For the first piece, I watercolored the lady and layered her under a transparency of a document. Added my usual germans scrap, stickles glitter, rhinestones, bow and a little floating tag that says "Wishful thinking" and she was complete. After I finished her, she just told me she wanted to be a St Patricks day lady and so I hand colored her with red hair and green eyes. My art friend gave me a new set of stamps and I choose Kiss me I'm Irish.... at least for today. LOL. Thought I'd enter this at The Stampsmith challengeTSC9- "Try Something new". This green creation is very glittered up with a green shamrock shiny doiley, two colors of glitter 4 leaf clovers, silver 4 leaf clover stickers and tiny yellow rhinestones. To top it off , I added green ribbon around the edge and a gold ribbon accent to the top. It also is suitable for the Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge #19, to use green ribbon. Now that I have all those green supplies all over my studio, I better get going and start make some St Patricks day cards!
May luck be with you, Gerri
