Art Nouveau Lady

Hi Bloggers,

Today I'm sharing another of the samples that I've made for the shows on Tuesday. I fear it's a bit OTT!

I stamped the lady from the Creative Expressions Art Nouveau Ladies stamp set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Metallic Embossing Powder. I coloured her in using some Eco Green Paris Trunk Dye Ink Pads and a paint brush - Parchment for the skin, Walnut for the hair, Garnet for the hat, Amethyst for the background and Classic Cobalt for the line between the image and the background. I mixed a little Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent Mica Powder in with the last 3 colours to give a little shimmer. The Pearlescent Mica Powder is a handy thing to have in your craft room. You can add it to any dye based ink or water colour to add a little shimmer.

I cut my lady out and added her to a Fleur de Lys Square cut from black card.

I spritzed some Cosmic Shimmer Misters in Mallow Blush and Lilac Night onto some black card and dried it with my heat tool. I then dusted it with my anti static bag. I put Perfect Medium all over That Special Touch Ivy Background and placed my misted card dusted side down onto the mask and ran it through my Grand Calibur. The Perfect Medium transferred to the debossed pattern on the card. I added some Cosmic Shimmer Silver Shine Metallic Embossing Powder and heated it.

I swiped my anti-static pad over some white card and stamped some small images using Perfect Medium and I embossed them with Cosmic Shimmer Clear Embossing Powder. I then spritzed over the the area with the Mallow Blush and Lilac Night Misters.

I cut one flower out of felt using Spellbinders Spiral Blossoms Two and another flower out of black card using Spellbinders Spiral Blossom One.

I cut some leaves out of black card using the Spellbinders Foliage die set. I inked through the dies with Perfect Medium. Once removed from the dies I dusted each one with either Pink Ultra or Lilac Frost Mica Powders which are from the Garden Tones Cosmic Shimmer Mica Spray Set.

I assembled the card as shown and added some faux pearls made with Cosmic Shimmer Dusky Pink Pearlescent PVA along the outside edges.

Hope you like the card.

Thanks for stopping by.
