Good Luck

Good morning folks.
As it's Tuesday it's time for a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz
This week Caz has chosen the theme of -

Myth and Magic

Quite a broad theme, but finding something in my stash that followed the theme was a little more tricky.
In the end I used one of the images on a sheet from a magazine from yonks ago, I think it was Simply Cards and Papercraft.

There are quite a few mythical creatures on this sheet but I went with the leprechaun as I wanted a good luck card for my son's new job.
I used paint to isolate the image I wanted then printed it off on card and coloured it with Copics.
After fussy cutting him out I attached him to my base card which follows the latest sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch, with pads. The embossing was done using a Lifestyle Crafts folder. The sentiment was also a magazine freebie.

Check out the rest of the DT and why not join us this week.
