So i don;t have any St. Patrick Day stamps (probably not even a clover), so i went to google. At first my plan was to find a digi stamp i liked and use that for my card. However on my sure i found a super funny cartoon by Robin Crossman. He dose some super funny cartoons called Ned & Larry, i couldn;t find a direct link to the cartoon (what i found had a bunch of pop ups, yuck!), but you can find some of other Ned & Larry cartoons here. I'm sure you could see the actual cartoon if you google Robin Crossman and St. Patrick Day!

I started my card by die cutting the fish bowl out of water color paper. I also cut two of the fish from Simon Says Stamps Best Fishes stamp set, stamped the matching images and colored them with Papertrey Ink dye inks.

At this point i new i was going to try a shaker card (i'm really bad at shaker cards!!). So i cut a panel of water color paper and with a pencil lightly traced the fish bowl. I also lightly sketched rainbow lines, i wanted the rainbow to look like it ended in the fish bowl, similar to the cartoon. I used PTI inks and a little water to color the rainbow. I also added a little blue color to were the fish bowl would be.

I added the two fish to the panel with foam dots, then piled some black and silver sequins in between them. To my cut fish bowl i adhered some clear acetate, then added foam tape all around the bowl before adding it to my card base.

Last i needed a sentiment, i came up with Where's the Gold?!?, you know because its the end of the rainbow, i sure would want gold!!  I used a stamp set and matching die from Lawn Fawn for the work bubble, then hand wrote the sentiment!

I hope you will stop by The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers to see Design Team's projects and hopefully play along with us!!

Have a great day!!

Dana
