This week’s cue card is ‘Lucky’, which is exactly how I am feeling after receiving an Honourable Mention from CASology for my Blush entry. Super honoured!
This week, I have opted for a monochrome colour scheme, but really wanted to incorporate a grassy green to support my little image and sentiment. I chose Old Olive ink and cardstock to meet this objective.
The upstroke of the ‘d’ in the’ Good Luck’ sentiment seemed to lend itself to being populated with clover leaves, so naturally, four were punched using the heart from my Owl punch. The leaves were sponged and bifurcated using Old Olive ink and a Stampin’ Write marker, to add a bit of dimension.
Given that Old Olive is hardly a ‘pop’ colour against a Crumb Cake background, I added some white highlighting. This helped illuminate the clover.
I faux-stitched the crumb cake background to my heavyweight white cardstock using my chalk marker, and added a sliver of white card beneath the word ‘luck’ (just for luck!)
And that’s it!
Thanks for visiting!
