Lucky Me!

This week's craftiness was lots of fun and is a quick project over all.  So let's get started!
You'll need:
Heart Plaque (heart and back from Thoughts in Vinyl)
Modeling Paste
palette knife
eBrush, siphon adapter and Marker adapter
White acrylic paint
electronic die cutting machine (Sizzix eclips) and software
glue (wood glue)
Hammered Copper Paint (Krylon)
Tack cloth
Prep your wood.  Make sure that all sawdust is removed and you have a prepped surface.  Apply a thin coat of Gesso to both pieces of wood.  Let dry.

Using the spray paint, spray the heart.  Let dry according to the manufacturer's directions.
Using the siphon adapter and the eBrush, fill a cup or bottle with the acrylic paint.  You may need to thin is just a little for easy flow.  Spray a coat on the board.  I liked the speckled look so I did a light coat.  Let it dry and added another light coat.  Let dry.

Create a stencil using the shamrock in the shapes library.  I resized to about 1/2 inch and then used the copy and paste command to fill and manipulate for my stencil.  Cut.  You can also create your Lucky me title using one of your favorite script fonts.  Some of the areas of my cut are pretty thin, so be careful as you lift it off the mat and or get ready to color and apply to the wood.

Using the stencil and a knife, apply some of the modeling paste.  Lift the stencil and let the paste dry.

Using the eBrush, marker adapter and markers, place the stencil back down over the shamrocks and spray.  I decided to use 2 tones  of green and used the gray lightly in some areas around the edges of the shamrock to add a little bit more of a dimensional look.

Glue the heart to the base, glue the title to the heart.
