Preparing for the Irish

As I started to make this St. Patrick's Day card for an Irish friend, I reminisced about several Irish blessings and songs I've enjoyed over the years. What fun to hum and laugh over a few as I mixed the two green Magenta Nuance colors, jade and grass green, with water on the watercolor card stock.

As you can see, I wasn't able to quickly locate my "Happy St. Patrick's Day" stamp. I used a Rosie's Roadshow word stamp that I thought sounded liked an Irish blessing; inside, I'll handwrite Happy St. Patrick's Day.

I like the simplicity of this card design, as well as the technique because there are so many ways and colors to make the basis of this card design your own. You may dress it up as well.
