Happy St. Patrick's Day! Popping in to share my latest installment of Chickie Couture for DeNami Design. If you've been following my Chickie Couture Feature, you've seen Chickie dressed up in all kinds of different outfits, doing all kinds of fun activities. Well...let's just take a little lookie-loo at how Chickie celebrates St. Patrick's Day:
In honor of this super festive holiday, Leprechaun Chickie is sliding down a rainbow into a pot o' gold (gold sequins, that is) while shamrocks are falling from the sky! I wouldn't mind giving this little rainbow slide a try...how about you?!?!
To make the rainbow I cut a one inch strip of white cardstock. Then, I cut thin strips of cardstock (each measuring about 3/16") in red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple. I ran my tape runner over the white strip of cardstock, covering it completely, and then adhered the colored strips lining them up side by side. To finish it off, I trimmed off any excess white cardstock.
The pot o' gold is actually the H82 Medium Round Bowl stamped onto charcoal cardstock and cut out. I adhered it to the end of the rainbow with foam tape. Then, I squeezed some Crystal Lacquer onto the area above the "pot" and added the gold sequins.
Chickie was fussy cut and his legs were stamped separately so I could angle them upwards to give him a sliding effect. I hand drew his leprechaun hat and paper pieced the green band and glittery buckle.
What do you think?!?! I hope you like my Chickie Couture creation for today!
