Shamrock Swirl Wishes

I know it still feels like winter in some places but spring is just around the corner and with it I have some shamrock wishes to share with you today.  This stamp set really lives up to it's name of Shamrock Swirl and I thought it was just screaming for an embossing watercolor technique.

First I heat embossed the big shamrock with white embossing powder on the watercolor paper card base and then again on a separate pieces of watercolor paper.
Then I wet down both papers generously with plain water and used SU! reinkers (pumpkin pie and gumball) to float ink onto the images.  Then I used a heat tool to make it dry faster.

I fussy cut out the greener shamrock and popped it up on foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped with black versafine ink.  And everything was matted onto a black card base.

This is one of my favorite techniques and the Shamrock Swirl is a perfect set for it.  I hope all your shamrock wishes come true!
