Sorry folk but this is going to be a long post but hopefully worth it in the end. We at the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge team were lucky to be able to chose one of the amazing stamps from Art Impressions. 
I'll be honest by the time I got there most of the ones I would have chosen had already picked so I went for the Set Uptown Girls a stamp I wouldn't normally go for just thinking of all those layers sent chills down my spine.
But I actually love making the girls come to life bit a headache working out how to colour the parts I needed but it was so worth it. Now I want them all!

Here are girls in their glory, I used a bit of flower soft for boa and their glasses have all had a drop of glossy accents on. Since the image is quite large I've had to keep the card simple but used a busy piece of My Minds Eye Cambridge Court this balance all the white space of round the girls.
The swirl is Harrington Vine from Simon Says Stamps which I'm unable to find in the shop but its still a favourite. The Lovely Aster is from Memory Box and the mini scallop die for along the edge.
The sentiement is one of three that come with the girls.
This is the side view


I  layered the girls one at a time so I didn't get confused and here you can see how they two of them came to life. Sorry for such a long post but I do hope you can join our challenge this week and pop over to the Challenge Blog and check out the team.
