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
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
next i added some chit chat stickers and because this is the second in a set i also applied a generous coat of Ice Resin to protect my coaster
so now that it was completely dry i noticed that when cutting down the paper it doesn’t quite go to the edges so out came my burnt copper leaves (http://www NULL.emeraldcreek NULL.ca/Burnt-Copper-Leaves-Embossing-Powder-p/ehse-0008 NULL.htm)embossing powder and i applied to the edges in places around my coaster
and here you have it.. a ‘lucky’ surface to hold that cup of liquid!!
can you guess what is in my glass!!
LOL.. not what you thought right!!!
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!
you have lot of time between now and St. Patricks day to share with us a Lucky project!!! can’t wait to see what you come up with
