SC320: Lucky Changito





Good morning! I made time to work on the SCS sketch challenge yesterday. I love the challenges there, because I can use any stamp of my choosing. Changito is my "go to" guy, so I looked through my options and picked this little cutie...how about that tooth? Adorable!
I remembered that I had a scrap of some paper that I had previously used for a card kit swap; it was not a very big scrap, about 3 x 6 inches. (See 1st photo) It is such beautiful paper, with it's iridescent shimmer. I ended up piecing it to make it work. (I tried to capture the shimmer in the 2nd photo)
Changito is colored with pencils. I had planned to use a charm for embellishing, but decided I didn't like how that looked. I had already glued the image panel down when I decided to add the little shamrocks. Not sure how I am liking the placement, but had to roll with it anyway since it was stuck! LOL
Images: Stampendous "Changito Clover" Clear Set
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and True Black, Reminisce DP
Embellies: Bella Dots
Extras: Prismas/Crayolas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities
Thanks for stopping by today; I hope your day is a good one!

Beautiful card Angela. I think the little shamrocks go well with the Patterned Paper and image. Awesome.
