I saw this Lucky sign: http://lindseyscraftlist.blogspot.com/2010/02/lucky-wood-board.html I wanted to make one of my own.
My husband is a wood worker. In his home remodeling projects, I get lots of scrap wood. GraciAnn and I found a piece we liked, and she went to work sanding it. This particular piece was oak.
We got green paint. The color was "XMas Green".
We painted the entire board.
On my Silhouette, I cut the word Lucky and some stripey Shamrocks. I used a distressing ink pad and distressed the letters and the shamrock.
I put Mod Podge on the entire board.
I placed the letters and shamrock on the board and rubbed it down. I let it dry for about thirty minutes.
I mod podged over the top of the entire thing.
It dried. I added embellishments-ribbons and buttons. I feel Lucky to have such a wonderful sign!
