Luck of the Irish - Pot O' Gold Card

It's time once again for the wearin' of the green!  Corned beef and cabbage are in my near future!  For St. Patty's Day, I've turned a Clear Scraps Send it Clear Cupcake Card into an over-flowing pot of gold!  
Begin by painting the backside of the "Pot" with black acrylic paint.  Then create a rainbow with alcohol inks.
Use a felt pad alcohol ink applicator.  Apply alcohol inks in Red, Yellow, Green and Blue in strips across the pad - allowing the colors to bleed together slightly.  
Working on the back side of the card, daub on the rainbow, moving left to right in an arch.  Use rubbing alcohol on paper towel or soft cloth to clean up the edges.
On the front of the card, use an old paintbrush to apply a generous layer of Art Glitter Designer Dries Clear Adhesive to the top sections of the cupcake/pot o' gold.  While the glue is still wet, cover with Art Glitter Dazzlers.  Shake off the excess and set aside to dry.  Repeat on the other half of the cupcake.
I finished the inside of the card by adding two tones of green paper to the back section of the card and a Clear Scraps Accent Embellishment that had been colored with Green and Teal alcohol inks and stamped with as St Pat's Day message.  I added gold pearls to the embellishment with Viva Decor Pearl Pen.  The fancy gold corners are stickers from Mark Richardson.
Happy St. Patty's Day to All!!

Very clever to turn the cupcake into a pot of gold. Thanks for the rainbow technique. The card is lovely.
