Next I stamped on the base of the mug with a great background stamp from Tim Holtz. I used the new color "Cracked Pistachio" and some "Squeezed Lemonade" to give the look of green beer.
I added frosted film over the whole base as well.
The panels were embossed 2 times each with UTEE
I cut it out on white paper, so I hand colored everything to make it a bright vibrant green.
The Irish crown was the "Happy St. Patrick's day Borders Set" from Studio Illustrado
I put some foam core in the top of the mug and added some texture paste (beer foam). That actually worked out well, because it acted like "glue" to keep the hat and crown from moving around.
A little more embellishment completed the overall project.
