The Card Concept #119-Shamrock Blessings!

Welcome to another Inspiration Challenge at
the Card Concept!

Today's theme is 

As soon as I saw this photo, I thought of Mixed Media!
And I loved the greens with the touch of rust and white!

Here is my Mixed Media style card:

I could not believe that I only had one stamp that was a St. Patrick's Day theme!
And that was only this little bitty sentiment!!!
I had to think out of the box and create a shamrock!
I saw where you can use hearts to create a great shamrock! So that is what I did.

 I took  distress inks and smooshed them onto water color paper .
I used stamps to add some texture, as well as a stencil with some embossing paste.
Once everything was dry, I die cut 3 hearts.
All that was left was to create a stem for the shamrock.
I think it turned out really well.

The style of my card would be 
Mixed Media
2 or more mediums
such as inks, watercolors, stamps,
fabrics, foil.
Anything that adds texture to your project

Create a card or project using any of the  styles we have defined or create your own with a combination of styles.
