St. Patty and Baroque Minimalism...Plus Bunnies Too!

We had three wonderful sketches at RAQ's for this week. There was also an extra credit for making a St. Patty's/Father's Day/Mother's Day card. St. Patty's is closer, so I made a couple of them.

Sketch 1 was flipped sideways. I used paper from DCWV, flowers from The Paper Studio. Brads are also from The Paper Studio. The stamped image is a retired stamp from Stampin' Up, colored with pencils and accented with flower soft. Ribbon is from Offray. The beads used for the sentiment was from a pack bought at Hobby Lobby. The marquee is from Storybook, cut at 4 1/2" and embossed with Stylized Flowers.

Sketch 2 was all about tags. I used paper from MAMBI. The stamp is from Studio G, found at the dollar bin. The tag is from Sentimentals, cut at 3". I added green skittles to balance the layout. Ribbons are from Offray.

Sketch three features the same stamp, arranged around the swirl vine from Joys Of The Season, cut at 1 1/2". I distressed and painted some metallic ink on the vine cut. The paisely paper is from DCWV. I embossed the backgound with D'vine Swirls and added gold liquid pearls. More green skittles were used in the background.
