As this card came together it made me reflect on styles. I say my style is simple and rarely clean. I have problems with Steampunk, am not sure I know Grunge if you wave it at me and tremble to my toes at the mention of Art Nouveau. But with the help of a gorgeous stamp from Flonzcraft I think I may have cracked it. I loved the elegance of this silhouette and might have finally managed an Art Nouveau style card to be proud of. Well, I like it. All comments gratefully received.
I started by stamping Flonzcraft's Girl With Dog onto orange card. Using a piece of black card I cut the aperture using Cheery Lynn Spring Flower Burst Doily Angel Wing. Then I cut two Cheery Lynn Southern Charm Valance's. I backed the cuts with some ribbon and put them back in the negative spaces. The Spring Flower Burst doily was cut up and placed behind the aperture. I mounted the panel on a black base card.
I think it maybe needs a bit of orange something as a frame around the aperture but I am a bit wary of screwing it up since I am pretty happy with this look. I was thinking glitter, which is always a bit of a one shot option. Maybe I will see if I can get some orange rhinestones. What do you think??
