Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: use some lucky stars.
We Dutch people do not celebrate St. Patrick's day and so I don't have any supplies for it, like a clover stamp or wishbone or alike.
But the theme "use stars" could also apply to a birthday or an encouragement card like "you're a star".
And although I have a few ideas, which I might still submit, this is what I came up with so far.
I used watercolor paper and the Simon Says Stamp Birthday Balloons set for the sentiment and the stars. I stamped them with Versamark ink and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder from Zing.
I used Distress inks for my watercoloring (picked
raspberry, mustard seed and ripe persimmon) and I swiped those on some acetate, then sprayed the acetate with water to get the color moving and smooshed my watercolor panel into it, let it dry and repeat. A couple of times to het the heat embossing to stand out.
Not sure how well you can tell from the photo, in real life it stands out ;-)

I cased myself ;-)..I made this card for my borther's birthday last year. I used the same stars and a bolder, simpler sentiment from Sizzix (birthday by Stephanie Barnard)
I don't remember if Iused the smooshing techinque here or just the brush, Looks to me like I wetted the paper and let the inkspread, also Distress inks (cracked pistachio, mermaid lagoon and peacock feathers).
