SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS #79 G is for Green with Envy

Hello snarky peeps and welcome to another challenge at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS! This fortnight, it's all about the color GREEN. We want to see green predominately on your cards or projects, but they don't necessarily need to be a St. Paddy's Day themed card.
One of my friend's birthday happens to fall on St. Paddy's Day, so I've made a birthday card
with green beer for her:

 and a little snark on the inside. Big. Surprise. There.

Yes, I am younger than her, and yes, she'll get a kick out of this. My mug o'green beer was stamped and colored with Prisma Color pencils. The foam was created with embossing paste. Once that dried, I noticed that the ink from the top of the mug really bled through the paste, so I went over it with a white gel pen. And then I saw a white line. So out came the Diamond Stickles to mask that. Worked like a {lucky} charm. (See what I did there?) Of course, I couldn't resist a bit of snark on the
inside of my card. I even colored in the second line using one of the pencils used on the mug.

Now it's your turn! Just link up your green themed card or project at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers so we can admire it! For more green inspiration, please do check out what my Sisters in Snark, and our new Guest Designer, Josefine, have created for your viewing pleasure. 

Thanks for visiting, and I hope you have a fabulous day!

  1. Green beer? I'll stick to wine thank you. Love that sentiment!

  2. Green Beer, very popular around here on March 17th. Fabulous birthday card, love the sentiment.

  3. Love the sparkly foam head on your tankard of beer.
    Thanks for sharing at this week's Anything Goes challenge at ATSM. :)

  4. Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm green beer!!!
    SOOO much better than a shamrock shake (in my opinion)
    This is a great idea for a St Patrick's birthday card!

  5. Fun card, Christine! I absolutely love your coloring, and the sparkly foam looks superb! I am not a drinker of beer, so no comments on that! ;) Thank you very much for joining us at Seize the Birthday!
