St Patricks (repost)

This is a copy of a post I did on my St Patricks crafts from last year- but since no one really saw this post, thought I would do it again! :)

Several of you have asked if I will do a craft night with these, unfortunately I will be spending a week in paradise, and won't have time to do one! :D  BUT- I am cutting some shamrocks for someone else's craft night and would be more than willing to cut stuff out for you too, if you are brave enough to do them on your own. :)  Just let me know in the next week if you want something and I will cut it.  

The "LUCK" letters were cut out with a scroll saw (can I just say I LOVE my scroll saw?!) I also cut the clovers out with it. I painted the letters, then traced them on paper, then mod podged the paper on. One of the clovers has bead board paper on it (available at Home Depot) and another is glittered.

A closer view - I distressed the letters with sand paper and then inked the edges with a dark brown ink pad.

Hah! Like the yellow putty holding the letter upright?! :)

The glittered and bead board paper shamrock

Then I printed the word "lucky" on green vellum, and used spray adhesive to attach it to a painted board.

Shamrock cut out with scroll saw (I'm tellin' ya, I couldn't live without that saw!)
