This card is a twisted easel design. It features the Art Impressions Girlfriends Stamp Set #4756 "Flaunt It" but it also has some accessories and sentiments from the Art Impressions Stamp Set #5006 "Sham-rock".

Admission - I absolutely LOVE the girlfriends stamp sets. They just make me smile. So I wanted to use one of them, but give it a St. Patricks Day feel. I colored and accessorized the "Flaunt It" set, and I tried out the technique of using patterned paper as part of the stamped image - for 2 out of 3 of their dresses. I learned something important on that technique - it's easiest to do if you do large areas only lol. I tried to do all 3 dresses, but the one on the end needed to be cut in several small pieces and put back together - which I promptly messed up, so I colored hers instead. I used patterned papers from an older retired Doodlebug St. Patrick's Day stash. These ladies got their party on with the beer, bowler hat, and 4-leaf clover from the "Sham-rock" stamp set.

I try to avoid the plain white background using these stamp sets - so I greened it up by coloring it with greens and then added some dots in with a stencil THS006 "Dot Fade" from Tim Holtz so it wouldn't look a flat green. Lastly I added the sentiments, bow, and gems to finish it off. #artimpressions #artimpressionschallenge #artimpressionsgirlfriends
