“Get Lucky” Banner!

Monday Montage Blog Hop – Week 14

Hello friends! Welcome back to our Monday Montage Blog Hop! You may have gotten here from the amazing Bree Renwick’s blog, make sure you select the “next” button below and that will take you to the next stop on the hop, the fabulous Dani Dziama’s blog. I have something funky & fresh today & I know my friends have amazing inspiration too!

Okay, I know this is yet another banner but several of my friends have made the cutest banners for St. Patties so I just had to follow suit!  I also wanted to show that you could make more than one banner from the cute banner Sale-A-Bration kit sooooo I made a second banner with the parts I had left from last time 🙂

This banner was simple, quick and easy!  It features gold, gold and more gold (another habit I can’t seem to kick!) and shamrocks cut with the e-cutter.  Now for some fun technique info:

I cut the shamrocks out of silver glitter paper and then I spritzed them with Wild Wasabi ink mixed with alcohol.  I can’t tell you how pretty that is!  I used my sponge dauber and gold ink to add gold dots to one of my Wild Wasabi hearts and one of the banner pieces.  I’m not sure I love the gold on the banner, it kinda looks brownish instead of gold but there is a little glint of bling so I stayed with it 🙂

I have to say the whole time I was making this I had the song “Get Lucky” playing in my brain.  I just love that song by Daft Punk & Pharrell Williams!  Those of you that watched the Grammys hopefully saw the awesome collaboration on this song with Stevie Wonder, Pharrell and the “robots” 🙂  Anyway, I love to work out and run to this song and this banner made me feel like I was totally up all night to “get lucky”!
