I cut my tag from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge. The funny thing is I searched for St. Patrick's Day images but couldn't find anything within the cartridges I owned on my Gypsy. I was going to cut a butterfly tag and make something from that when I spied the clover!
I used Dylusions spray inks to mist Kraft cardstock, which I had cut two tags from, one with the clover cut out and one plain. I misted the top tag over the back first, using the clover as a mask to make the shape, which I outlined with white gel pen. Then I placed the cut out image over the sprayed clover and misted again to colour the rest of the tag back. On the other side of the back tag I used Distress inks to colour in the part of the tag that would show through the clover cut on the front. I misted with gold spray and glued the two tags together. I stamped the sentiment and butterflies with a Close To My Heart stamp set, Pair-a-Phrase. I gave everything a light spritz with the gold spray and coloured in the butterflies with coloured pencils, then added a few Stickle accents and some green gingham ribbon and cream yarn.
I hope you all have a fun week with lots of luck!
