This week the Shabby Tea Room challenge prompt is “Luck of the Irish” and the inspiration was to use green. With St Patricks day coming up and spring in the air it is no surprise this colour is making an appearance in a few challenges. Of course one of my favourite go to sketch challenges is Mojo Monday so I have combined them again this week using sketch 181 from Mojo Monday.
I’m not into combining too many challenges, and most often don’t, but these two seem to work well together and having the colour prompt gives a great jumping off point when searching for a digital kit or papers to work with for the sketch.
I chose LilyKate Digital Starter Kit from Basic Grey just for the beautiful greens and patterns with green in them. Adding in a variety of green shades with all the details on this card has really given it a fresh spring look.
The sentiment is also from the LilyKate digital kit and worked well with the little bird and birdcage which I stamped with Stamp it Dye Ink. The white paper is Cuttlebug embossed for extra texture. Green cardstock is CM. Pretty ribbon bunched up helped balance the sketch out. The flower has a corduroy button brad from CTMH added in the middle. A little Versa Color “sage” ink sponging, lots of stitching on my sewing machine and the Maya road Hat Pin finished it off.
