Hello everyone!
Today I'm sharing my take on this month's "Luck of the Irish Challenge" hosted by Cathi O'Neill....
I chose papers and embellishments with various shades of green.  I added the letters "Lucky" to the bottom left of the page and added pieces of crochet lace around some of the paper doilies......The pic of the little lady was a free image on Pinterest.....I had a lot of fun creating this layout and what a fun challenge to boot!

 The chipboard dress form and bling is from "Molossi" ..I altered the dress form with "Tim Holtz" ink and went over it with Viva Gold Rub....
I used stamps from "Something Tattered" on the punch work butterflies and handmade flower....
I used "Faber Castell" water color pencils, gelato's and "Adirondack" inks for the background effect......
I didn't use any fabric doilies but I cut out "Kaisercraft" paper/sticker doilies and added their wooden doilies.
There is still time to get your project uploaded for the challenge at Berry71Bleu -

Something Tattered

When Beth began hunting wallpaper for the bandboxes she was creating in 1990 it started a life of antiquing adventures and a passion for old paper. In 1993 Beth’s wallpaper covered boxes we featured in Victoria magazine and Beth’s sister Marilyn Krehbiel joined her in the pursuit. Marilyn’s business Hannah’s Treasures evolved into purveying historic wallpapers for movie sets. Beth peddled her boxes to the coast of California and settled in the west. In 1997 Beth married Peter Neumann, son of a letterpress printer, who shared Beth’s appreciation for the old paper arts. In 2011 Peter and Beth began Something Tattered in response to Beth’s newest pursuit, Wedding Paper designs from her vast collection of antique paper. In 2013 Something Tattered launched the current line of craft stamps and in 2014 the new antique wallpaper stamps were added bringing the adventure full circle. We hope you will share the passion.
