An Art Impressions Card Set

Well all I can say is that this has certainly been a busy summer.

That is why the blog has been so quiet...can you hear the echo too?

I did however have to play along with the Art Impressions Challenge # 165

Do yourself a favour and look at the DT sets from this, and last week! It is totally worth it!

And here is my set! I decided on 4 easel cards, all with a celebration theme. Two cards are just straight up easels, while two are twisted easels.
All images are coloured with colour pencils and the paper pack is 'Mosaic Memories' by Recollections. I kept all the cards as flat (ie no dimensional details) as possible as most of my cards are mailed internationally. However the recipient at least gets to have a dimensional card due to the way it is displayed!

First up is a straight up easel featuring the '29 Again' set. I love that goofy look on her face!
I added a scalloped strip of white card to add a bit more of an edge for the stand up portion to hook onto.

Next up is a twisted easel card featuring the 'Cheer Set'
I added a bit of glitter details, just to add to the festive look. 

For the second straight up easel I used Cupcake BFFs 

And finally the second twisted easel featuring Party Girls They made a really big mess with all that confetti!

I made matching envelopes, using the Envelope Punch Board and alcohol spray inks.

Fun Fun Fun!  Are you playing along?
