Sending 'A Bit O' Green' Good Luck...

Hi everybody,

I'd love to share a card I have made to play along with this week's challenge over on the, always awesome, Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog, where this time round, in celebration of the up-and-coming, St.Patrick's Day, the 'theme' is, 'A Bit O Green'.

And here's my card...

I started by creating a watercolour wash, with a few splashes and splodges, using a variety of Distress Inks, (Lucky Clover, Cracked Pistachio, Fossilised Amber), across my card panel as a backdrop to my sentiment and scene.  I then smooshed Hero Arts' Green Ombre Ink pad onto a piece of card, and die-cut the Simon Says Stamp 'Sending' die from it, (which didn't show up too great in the photo...but it is 'ombre'...I promise!).  I cut the die from a piece of white foam at the same time to add some dimension to my sentiment.  I then stamped out a bunch of four-leaf clovers from Lawn Fawn's 'My Lucky Charm' set, coloured using Copics, and fussy cut.  I built-up my sentiment by using the 'Good Luck' from the same Lawn Fawn set, stamped onto vellum, and heat embossed in white.  I simply wrapped my strip of vellum around my card and taped at the back to keep it in place.  I then covered another piece of card in Versamark Ink, and heat embossed it using a Copper Wow embossing powder, then die-cut the gorgeous Simon Says Stamp 'Tiny Hearts Outline' die from it.
I then built up my little sentiment scene, using a mix of wet glue and foam adhesive, and embellished with a scattering of my copper Tiny Hearts.

I mounted my panel onto a kraft card base, and there you have it.

I really hope you like it, and would love to read your comments, so please feel free to leave any :)

Hopefully see you soon, and oh...Happy St Patrick's Day!
