It's Not Easy Being Green

Today the challenge is all about green cards.  Being this time of year, I couldn't stop myself from making a St. Patrick's Day card.  I decided to make a wash of color as a background and then stop the Irish Blessing saying (F1384) on top.  To create the background, I took a heavy-weight watercolor paper and made a rectangle shaped area in the center with a waterbrush.  I then sprayed the center with an assortment of ink sprays.  Pre-wetting part of the paper helped control the shape of the finished background.  I added the saying and then attached a shamrock I made with one of the new Impression Obsession dies (shamrock DIE 065-AA)

Need more green inspiration? Check out what Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, Julie, Kittie, and Vicki created. Want to play along? You can find all the information here, and you could even win a $25 IO gift certificate!

Don't forget that you can find Impression Obsession on Twitter, Pinterest, and Facebook!
