CI Paint Inspired By ~ Go Green!

Thanks to all those who joined in our "Anything Goes" challenge, 
we enjoyed all your wonderful creations!
 Check the post below to see the Top 3 and the February Winner!
This week's challenge is:
Inspired By: Go Green
we want to see all your "green" projects~ whether they are St. Patty's day inspired or a fun recycled project
Be creative!!
Here's some inspiration:
I made this fun treat to give to my boys~
I took a clay pot and painted a base coat using some black acrylic paint. Once that was dried I went over the black with some CI Paint in Onyx...I wanted that shimmer that the CI paint gives!
For my sentiment I used my FAVORITE embossing powder~ Deliquesce Black. I just LOVE the look!
To finish off my project I wanted to add some gold brads~ only problem was~ I didn't own any so instead of buying them, I made them! A little recycling here too :)
I took some silver brads and embossed them with Deliquesce Gold Glitter
The picture does not do a good job of showing the sparkle~ but trust me they look AWESOME!!
Here is a close-up of the shamrock I used...couldn't leave him unpainted so I added some Green Olive and another glittered brad

I hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with this weeks challenge!!
Remember you do not need to use CI Paints on your projects but if you have them we would LOVE to see how you used them!!
As always thanks for stopping by and
have a great week!
General Challenge Rules
Each week you will be given a challenge to find inspiration in/from what ever the challenge theme is... you can be as literal or abstract in your inspiration as you want....Just make sure you can tie it back to the theme! Challenge closes at 6:00pm Eastern on Saturday.
You will always be able to jump back to the current challenge by clicking the "Current Challenge" link in our sidebar. The rules can always be found by clicking the tab "Challenge Rules" at the top of the page.
You do not need to use the Creative Inspirations Paints in your project, however, if you do, tell us which colors you used, and your name will go in the drawing twice! Each month, one person will win 5 jars of paint in the colors of their choice. The winner will be randomly drawn from all the people who have played that month, so make sure to join in on our challenges each week!
