Eileen Hull Art With Heart Challenge: Going Green

Happy St. Patrick's Day!
As you know, each month I participate in the Art With Heart Challenge with Eileen Hull. This month, the theme is "Go Green".

As you can see, there's not much of the color green here. Instead, I used things from the recycling bin and made flowers with the Sizzix 3-D Wrapped Flower. This "Go Green" approach was a lot of fun. I discovered a few new things that I'd love to share with you.
I created the crate by using Sizzix Little Sizzles Mat Board, an embossing folder, and DecoArt Antiquing Cream. Below is a sample that I varnished with their Satin Varnish. Doesn't it look like real wood? I love this!
The Antiquing Cream is part of the new DecoArt line of Fluid Acrylic Paints and Mediums. 

To create my mat board crate, I used the brand-new Train Case die that's part of the Vintage Travel release. This die will be available this May. I used the bottom portion for my crate. Isn't it adorable? I can't wait!
The case is generously sized. Perfect for my flowers! The beautiful flower colors were created with the DecoArt Mists. 
So easy to use!
