Kiss Me, I'm Iowish

Hi there!! I created this project and forgot to share it! I made it for St. Patrick's Day with an Iowa twist. The last couple of years in Iowa there have been Kiss Me, I'm Iowish T-Shirts for St. Patrick's Day. Like the picture you see below. So I decided to create some wall art with this t-shirt as inspiration. I am from a small town in Iowa and will always be an Iowa girl at heart no matter where the Army sends us. Hence, I'm Iowish!! Heehee! Though I do have Irish ancestors as well.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day, tumblroos!

I got the small wooden piece from Michaels and covered it with scrapbook paper. I cut out the state of Iowa using the Cricut's Fifty States Cartridge. It was around 7.5 by 6.5 inches. I then cut the shadow out of it as well and added white gel pen accents. I then cut out two more states and cut them down to create the hills. 

The tractor, boy, and clouds were stamp and paper pieced from PK-122 Funny Farm. The farm scene is from PK July 2012 Stamp of the Month set. The letters are from PK-155 Lucy's ABC's outlined. The small clover the boy is holding is from PK-282 St. Patrick's Day set. I colored the farm, tractor, boy, small clover, and letter with Copic Markers.
