Colour Me Striking- #62

Colour Me time is here again!  Won't you come and join us for the fun?!  Here is this week's inspiration:


My immediate thought was shamrocks, I mean it is just about St. Patrick's Day and there are lots of green challenges happening out there.  But then I thought I might use these lovely SU! leaves and HAD to use them!  

I white embossed them on water color paper.  Once I had them down I used a couple of different SU! greens (Certainly Celery and Garden Green) with my aquapainter to create the water color look.  Then I sprinkled some salt over the top and it draws the color towards it.  Such a cool effect.  The finishing items include the tag with the sentiment from Winnie and Walter, the Ribbon (SU!) and the sequins from Neat and Tangled.   Super fun to make and get messy with. 


Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo... come on over to Colour Me and check out all the wonderous creations.  Here are the ladies blogs so you can visit them each individually and leave them some bloggie love!

Katie Brooks  (that's me!)


I do hope you'll come and join us for the fun!   Thanks for stopping by. :)
