a lucky coaster!

hello everyone! i am here this month to show you a quick and easy project i created for Emerald Creek Dares (http://blog NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.ca) for this weeks challenge –  Lucky Clover

emerald creek with ice resin

i started by tracing my coaster onto a  piece of Emerald Creeks 100lb cardstock (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.ca/100lb-Cardstock-p/cs0001 NULL.htm). then using various greens from the Distress pain (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.ca/product-p/dp-paint NULL.htm)t line i dripped them onto the paper prior to  spraying  them with water. i then used an air can to spread the paint across the page. (totally forgot to take a picture of it but as you can see it spread it out nicely!)  i set this aside to dry

next i took one of my mover and shapers and cut out four hearts which i covered with glossy accents. once covered i dipped into the jar of distress glitter.

now it was time to decide what i wanted on my coaster. so out came a retired but so loved Emerald Creek stamp,archival ink and clear embossing powder (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.ca/Clear-Embossing-Powder-p/ecc-110 NULL.htm)i stamped and embossed my background.

i then heat set it to make sure it was completely drive

now i am a huge believer in ‘creating your own luck’ in life. the more positive you are, the more you send your intentions out in the universe, the ‘luckier’ of a life you shall leave. this coaster will be my reminder of that for those days i forget!
