Lucky stars tag with video tutorial

http://www.simonsaysstampblog.com/mondaychallenge/

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about Lucky Stars. It's almost St. Patricks Day, so let's add some luck to our projects, of maybe only some stars. Or combine the two like I did in my tag.



When I think of St. Patrick's Day, I think of dark green, shamrock, Irish holiday and dwarves with pots full of gold. I've kept it with the dark green and clover for my tag. I wanted to make a light base so I applied a few layers of Cracked Pistachio. With the Stars stencil and the Lucky Clover (Lucky Stars...) Distress Ink I applied the darker layer.



I placed the Stars stencil back again and with Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls Mist I gave the stars a golden shimmer, that can translate for the put with gold and the golden shine of the stars. With Words Remnant Rubs I added some text.



The clover I cut with my Silhouette Cameo. I picked out an image from the Internet, traced in the software and cut in 3 different sizes. With racked  Pistachio Paint Distress I have them painted green, and with the Big Brush Artist Pen May Green I gave some depth. Eventually, with the black aquarelle pencil I added more depth and shading.
See for the whole process the video below.
