Top O' the Mornin to Ya ...

Bit of a theme today, with it being St Patrick's Day and all: a Good Luck card using a Southern Ridge Trading Co wooden horseshoe piece. I loved working with it, it is so robust. Thought I'd test that by coating the piece in gel medium (to limit the absorbency of the ink into the wood), inking it up and stamping with it. I had to press hard, and I also put a foam pad under where I was stamping. I loved how the stamped horseshoe came out, you can see the details of the wood grain. It gives quite the distressed look, perfect for any western themed projects.
Lots of 'lucky' elements in this card, shamrocks, horseshoes, good luck wishes ..... the recipient is going to reap the benefits hopefully. That could be you, or me ... can I send it to myself ? Lol
Happy St Patrick's Day
