Tiddly Inks Challenge #42 - Lucky Me!

For this weeks Tiddly Ink Challenge with being all about green, I desided to go with the feel of St Patties Day!  When I first saw this challenge I was going to go a different direction and then when looking at all my Tiddly Ink Digital Stamps saw this one called "Toasting Properly"  so I then thought I would look for a good irish toast.  Here's what I found..... 

Here's to lying, stealing, and cheating!
May you lie to save a friend;
May you steal the heart of the one you love;
and may you cheat death.

I colored Toasting Properly using my copic markers and although the colors are not a bold as in real life they worked out perfect. Shades of green, and Auburn/Red hair.  I was very happy with how the hair color turned out.  Being a blonde myself I find it more challanging to do go away from my natural hair color and when I started to color the dress green I had planned on going with blond but how rich the green looked I desided I need to make this a real irish girl, and so I went with the red.  I used E13, E17, E18, E19.

I was also planning on using only the center of the green dotted paper, but the shamrock swirles in a brushed effect made me deside to go with that also.  only added the gems because I needed a little extra something on both sides. 

So that is my creation for this week. Again somewhat simple but it works for me.....  I wish you all a very happy St. Patrick's Day!
