St Patrick

For those of us that have Irish in the blood or have friends that do, Tellen's Place is helping you to celebrate Ireland's Patron. This week it's Shamrock or Leprechaun Green we want to see in your projects.
For my part I made this page for my art journal.
A right mixture of techniques. The cross is made from T-bag folded squares with a celtic knot design on them. Interlocked and stuck to an embossed and sanded piece of core-dinations card. The shamrock is made from a flower that I cut up and coloured with promarker. The image is, of course, from Tellen's Place. Coloured with promarkers and chalked around.
The base card is made from glossy card stock that I smeared with different DI's then sprinkled water onto to give a mottled effect.
Now it's your turn. If you need more inspiration, head on over to the other Diva's blogs and look at their fabulous creations. Terry is being very kind and giving you all a head start by providing a freebie as well.
We're all looking forward to seeing everyones green projects and there's 3 images from the shop for the winner. So get crafting.

The challenges that I am entering this into are
Delicious Doodles - Use Green for St Patrick's Day
Sew Many Cards - St Patrick's Day
The Corrosive Challenge Blog - Going Green
Stampin with the Dragon - St Patrick's Day
