LUCK

Hello All,

For today I will be playing along with Simon Says Stamp, Inspired By..., Just Add Ink, and Freshly Made Sketches.  Here is my card for today, enjoy!

At first, I used ink to cover the white panel and it just wasn't working for me. So I put down a bit of white acrylic paint and added green reinker. I gradually added more green as I went down the panel trying to blend all together. In the end, I created an ombre backdrop of rainbow greens.


The three strips come from a card that was done awhile back. It was created using the Concord and 9th- Marbled Turnabout in all metallics. The cutout of the 'U' is from pearlescent green paper. Lots of shine and shimmer.
Challenges Entered:
Freshly Made Sketches: FMS476
Just Add Ink: #545- Colour!
Inspired By: Lucky Rainbow
Simon Says Stamp: A Bit O' Green

 

My grandmother on my mother's side was from Ireland.  Lucky for my sister she lived in Ireland for a time. So these cards do tend to be sent out to my family. Who knows we might venture that way someday and visit my roots.

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and please stay safe and healthy.


All the best,

Shawna, I'd be happy to cross the Bridge to Canada at this point!!! But I do hope you get that trip to Ireland some day!
Your Lucky card has not only a four-leaf clover, but a horseshoe, too! Perhaps you'll have the Luck o' the Irish on your side, too!

Your background was definitely worth your efforts Shawna, it’s come up beautifully!! I love how you’ve included the horse shoe amongst your sentiment too! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.
