Hi Folks, There are new stamps that have been recently released at Chocolate Baroque I have really enjoyed working with these lovely stamps, as I am a real fan of the Art Deco/Art Noveau era. There are three plates, a large A4 plate called Fabulous Flappers full of flappers and decorative elements, and two smaller A5 plates with some lovely Lalique style birds, and lovely curvy Art Deco flowers.
For my first card, I have created a marble background, using shaving foam and Golden acrylic paints. I have stamped the main image onto a piece of white card, and cut out an oval shape, just avoiding the bottom area where her dress overlaps the edge. I hand cut a black mat layer. I stamped some of the flower images onto some spare white card, and coloured all of the images with Distress Markers.
Nouveau Lovebirds stamp plate to create a border along the bottom of the card, and added some black gems for decoration. I have added a sentiment from the Mackintosh Sentiments clear stamp set.
I stamped the central image, and then used some bleach to take away the colour within the image, before colouring it with pencils. I added some ribbon, and Memory Box die cuts to finish. I wanted to thread the ribbon behind the main image, so I cut two slits along the outline of her dress, and simply threaded it underneath.
