Green and Gold for Wicked Wednesday ATC

So I've been on a roll playing at the Wicked Wednesday ATC Challenge...until last week...when I dropped the ball.  Basically, a four day weekend of DT duties kept me busier than I imagined and by Tuesday I desperately needed a shower and a night out.  So today I decided that my usual habit of procrastination would not fly, since it's their 200th challenge (WooHoo!), and lo and behold, here it is,  my entry into the Green and Gold challenge.  Yea, me!

Been dying to color up this hilarious, if somewhat creepy (and I mean that in the nicest possible way), Runaway Leprechaun from BloobelStamps and today was the day.  I've used Copics, Prismacolor pencils and a gold Posca paint pen for the gold coins and I have to say he was sort of a challenge to color and fussy cut in a size to fit a 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch space, but I kinda love how he turned out. He's mounted on a shiny metallic gold base (sort of difficult to photograph) with a metallic mesh ribbon over a hand made textured paper mat from Sizzix. I added some foam glitter shamrocks and there ya go.

I'm also adding this to the DL.Art March Linky Challenge, the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Use Green, Brown Sugar Green and Gold, Craft for the Craic Luck O' the Irish, Open Minded Crafting Luck/St. Patrick's Day and Simon Says Wednesday A Bit O'Green
