Hi everyone, welcome to my second post and project as a spotlighted guest at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenges this month. This week the challenge theme is :

Get Lucky

I created a card using Tim Holtz Sizzix TREE RINGS 3D Texture Fades Embossing Folder for the backgrounds. I also used Tim Holtz Sizzix LUCKY LOVE 3D Impresslits Cut and Emboss Folder and BOLD TEXT 2 Thinlits Dies as the main point.

I started by creating the background for my card. I embossed a piece of kraft cardstock with the Tree Rings 3D embossing folder. I simply added ground espresso distress ink to the top of the embossed tree ring.

I swipe the inks across the non-stick surface, then mist the inks with water until small beads form. Lay the watercolor paper into the watered ink to pick up color. Let it dry. I used this watercolour paper for my clover leaves and cut 10 separate leaves for this piece.

I then inked the edges with some Walnut Stain and added a touch of Treasure Brass Gilt wax from Connoisseur Studio, just rubbing it gently over the surface to accentuate the detail.

I die-cut Lucky Is A State Of Mind from brown cardstock and trimmed it to create a template. I embossed the template with the Lumber 3D embossing folder. I used a DISTRESS EMBOSSING PEN to draw on the edges of the letters and then embossed them with gold embossing powder.

Don't forget, if you would like to see more inspiration from the talented teamies over on the challenge blog and every week, one lucky random participant has the chance to win a $25 gift voucher from Simon Says Stamp and you can join in up to 5 times, which means you could have 5 chances to win.
