This week it's all about good luck for upcoming St. Patrick's Day over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! It's still two weeks away, but maybe you're already inspired by this holiday.
I'm not really familiar with this Irish holiday. For me it's the color green, clovers, leprechauns and a rainbow with a pot full of gold at the end. I'm inspired by the Lucky 6x6 paper pad of Authentique. The background is made out of strips of pattern paper of the paper pad.
This shade of green is not my favorite color, and the pattern was also very busy. Time for a coat of Gesso to make everything a little less intense. It was important that the background with show through, so I only have applied a thin layer. A little color is needed again, and now with my favorite shades of green, Cracked Pistachio and Crushed Olive. I applied it with my fingers, especially along the edges.
The layers I gave more dimension and interest, by are using stencils and stamps.
