Simple Shamrocks


Hello!  It's my turn to feature a project over at Creative Inspirations Paints this week, and I am particularly fond of the result, being of Irish descent and born on St. Patrick's Day:


My shamrocks began life as a couple of paper flower petals from Prima, which I had bought in my early stamping days.


I thoroughly dislike the ones with words on them, so they got a coat of Emerald shimmer paint.



A pearl center and hand-drawn stem for each shamrock....


....tied with a little twine bow, and a fabulous Verve sentiment:


Thanks so much for joining me today!

Like the made over Shamrock flower petals. I paint my white flowers also. So much easier than buying many colors.
