Irish Eyes - Tando Creative / Moxxie


I'm sharing a layout for Tando Creative today. The theme this week on the Tando Design Blog is Ribbons and Lace. I had a lot of fun with this theme and decided to create my own lace-filled shamrock from Tando chipboard. I'm looking forward to the upcoming St. Patrick's Day holiday, and to help get me thinking green, I paired my festive shamrock with the Moxxie St. Patrick's Day collection.


I started with a branch from the Leaf Branches with 3 Loose Leaves and some hearts from the Jewelery Heart Set. I trimmed the leaves from the branch set for use in my flower clusters and cut the stem down to a better size for my shamrock. I trimmed the small loops from the top of the hearts to make a clean edge. I colored the chipboard pieces with Lemon Zest and Cut Grass Dylusions Ink Spray and topped that with Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist and Blizzard Glimmer Glam Paint. I filled the cutouts in the hearts with green lace to finish.


Here is one of the leaves from the branch set. I added some of my favorite flowers and Want2Scrap rhinestone flourishes to make some pretty flower clusters.


I also added a key from the 5 Decorative Key Set.  I colored this piece with Tattered Angels Antique Brass Glimmer Mist and then covered it with a layer of Clear Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
