Good Luck

Reminder time of the month for
CAS Watercolour March challenge...
... you have until the 24th of the month to share your cards on the blog
I had to think a bit out of the box for my card today... as I only seem to have to Good Luck sentiment stamps...  So I created my own three leaf clover stencil with a small heart die and used the same die to create my four leaf clover from green card.

For my background I smooched Distress Oxide Cracked Pistachio onto my mat and sprinkle on the tiniest bit of Emerald green Brushos, then spritzed with water.
I used my blending brush with the stencil and randomly sponged leaves over the dry background.  I trimmed the panel to fit on one side of a white card and attached my clover leaf and a also  a stitched circle die cut with the stamped sentiment.

The good luck sentiment prompted me to make the card up as a card holder where I could insert a lottery ticket and stamp a sentiment on the inside - like happy birthday, or congrats, or fathers' day.

I am also playing along with The Rainbow Card challenge #15 - Especially Emerald
