It's time for a new Dare at Emerald Creek!
This time we want you to think Irish, greens, lucky clover, pot o'gold & leprechauns.
My project is a 4x4 canvas ~ made using watercolour paper and chipboard.
I added a sheet of thin magnet to the back and now it has a new home on the side of my fridge.
Just a little something to remind me of how lucky I really am.
I started with my 4x4 piece of 140lb cold press watercolour paper and 3
shades of blue Distress Stain - Tumbled Glass, Broken China & Peacock Feathers.
I smooshed all 3 colours of stain onto my splat mat before dragging my watercolour paper through it several time, drying the paper with my heat gun in between.
Once I was happy with it I adhered the watercolour paper to my chipboard base and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink. I added some random stamping around the edges and some gold transfer foil.
Next I started working on my focal point ~ I used the medium sized heart stamp from the Dina Wakely Collaged Heart stamp set & Staz-On ink pad to create my 4-leaf clover on watercolour paper.
I decided to use Twinkling H20 Shimmer paints to colour my clover. I haven't used my Twinkling H20's is forever and loved the shimmery look my clover ended up with!
I fussy cut my clover out before using the blunt end of my Sizzix quilling tool to 'shape' my clover leaves.
I used the Paddy stamp from Emerald Creek. I coloured him with Twinkling H20's as well before cutting him out. I just love how he is peeking out from behind the cloverleaf.
Thank you for dropping by my blog today and I hope my project has you feeling lucky.
