Stamping in the Rain

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Here's my St. Patrick's Day card.  I love this holiday, it's just so fun, plus I'm Irish, so I have to celebrate it!  LOL.  I had to use a retired set (Rainbow's End), because there just aren't enough stamps out for St. Patrick's Day.  I used Wild Wasabi as a base, then stamped my clover with Versamark and my sentiment in Garden Green.  I also used Garden Green as a mat.  My leprechaun was also stamped in green, then colored in with black marker, orange, peach and gold pen.  It was very hard to get the gold to look right.  I finally ended up using gold ink with the sponge dauber and it still won't stay on as well as I'd like.  I hand colored the rainbow, which was fun and added a Red Glimmer Paper heart.
