Anything But a Card challenge #45 "Green with Envy"

Good morning and happy Sunday to you.  It's the third Sunday of the month and you know what that means. Yup, another Anything But a Card Challenge #45 and this month our challenge is using GREEN!  I knew exactly what I wanted to do since St. Patty's day is just around the corner.  What a coincidence that this month's theme is wrapped in GREEN, lol!  So let's get started:

A couple of years ago I made a mold using my Amazing Casting Products of a horseshoe I cut out in chipboard using my cricut a couple of times and glued them together.  It's so easy when you don't have the exact item to create.

I glued 3 pieces together to give it some thickness.

And pierced holes on either side of the horseshoe.

Then I mixed up my Amazing Mold Putty (you can go HERE and see how to mix it up) 
and pushed my chipboard horseshoe into it.
I like to use up any space to mold something else too.  NO wasting that precious mold putty. 

I used my Amazing Casting Resin with the Alumilite Silver Metallic powder to create this beauty.  
You can view a tutorial HERE on how to prepare it.
Then I glued some silver rhinestones onto it with my E6000

Love it, but now you are wondering where the GREEN comes in?
Well, this was a necklace I made a couple of years ago and ...

this is what I made for this challenge using some of the steps above.  Since I already had the mold (love how they hold up for years) I just casted it in the Amazing Casting Resin which when it cures dries WHITE, but I added the green rhinestones and not as many as the original piece.  Using the Amazing Clear Cast I  painted that over the entire piece making sure those rhinestones would not pop off and also to give it a nice shine.  
I then added a gold chain and now I am ready to make some luck on St. Patty's Day!

Thanks for stopping over and checking out my "GREEN" challenge at Anything but a Card and I hope you will play along.  Remember, the rules are simple

Until next time, have a great day and God Bless.
