Copic Coloring Clovers with Power Poppy Wish You Luck

Hey folks!

With St. Patrick's Day only a few weeks away, I thought now would be a great time to share the Power Poppy WISH YOU LUCK Digital Stamp! If the legend is true, then I’m fairly certain when St. Patrick used the three leaves of the native Irish clover, the shamrock, to teach the Holy Trinity he had no idea that it would eventually become an icon for a holiday in his name. Iconic they are. You would be hard pressed to find anyone who doesn’t think the shamrock is synonymous with this holiday.

I also have a full length real time video available on PATREON folks! In this video, I share with you all the deets on how I color in the fabulous image!

You can watch the video on how I made my cards HEREYou can also click the thumbnail link below.

According to one Irish Legend, if you kiss the Blarney Stone you will be given the gift for gab. I've often wondered if it's a trait that can then been passed down through the generations and if so which one of my ancestors kissed it so then one day my oldest would inherit this gift? That's something I think about every St. Patrick's Day.

Anywho. Let's gab about this project shall we? I printed the Power Poppy WISH YOU LUCK Digital Stamp on X-Press It BLENDING Card at 150% of it's default size. I wanted it to fit just big enough inside the 5"x5" photo mat in the 8"x8" picture frame.

This is one of those projects that when you first look at it you would probably start thinking about all of the markers you would need for it. You don't. I actually only used 3 markers for the Copic work and 2 for the pencil work on the clovers. Your 

With the right placement, you can really stretch your limited number of markers and pencils and get lots of depth, shadow and shade. I talk more about it in the VIDEO. There are over 300 species of clover, but I wanted the simple greens of the Irish clover, the shamrock.

With all of the green associated with St. Patrick's Day it may surprise you to know that the color blue is actually associated with St. Patrick. In fact it's called St. Patrick blue. This dates back to the 1780's when it was adopted as the color of the Anglo-Irish "Order of St. Patrick".

I finished this off with some Sakura CLEAR Glaze on the centers of the flowers and the buttons, but you could definitely add some shimmer to the highlights of those flowers!

That's it!
