Going Green

This week's challenge at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Green or St. Patrick's Day. My Outlawz Coloring Challenge Teammates, Carla, Penny, Laine, and I challenge you to use create a project for this challenge. You can use any color medium you like, just as long as you color! 

Our March sponsor at The Outlawz Coloring Challenges is Sweet Pea Stamps, who is offering our lucky winner four digis of his/her choice from the Sweet Pea Digi Stamp Store.  Play along with us for your chance to win! 

 Celtic Fairy was resized in PhotoElements, printed out onto Neenah cardstock using my laser printer, then colored with Copic markers. Palette chalk was used to add a bit of blush to her cheeks. Her earrings were touched with a bit of Clear Gelly Stardust Glitter pen to make 'em sparkly and several layers of Clear Gelly Glaze pen to add shine and dimension.

The patterned papers are from old Origins and Lime Rickey collections by Basic Grey. An older QuicKutz scallop border die was used, as was a Fishtail Flag die by Die-namics. Most paper layers were sponged with Peeled Paint and Forest Moss Distress inks. Some shamrock patterned ribbon was added to the mix for an additional touch of the Irish! The papers and ribbon were layered according to a sketch from The Deconstructed Sketch Challenge Blog

Here's the sketch, so you can see how I did with it!
