The card for today focuses on my favorite style of art, Art Deco. When I saw the HSS Inspiration Challenge #202 from Hand Stamped Sentiments I thought I would create banners with a couple of embellishments. Then I looked at it more closely and said 'The colors remind me of Art Deco!'. If you not familiar with this style here is a website that explains it pretty well.. Anyhoo, Here it is..
|Very minimal color which agrees with the Art Deco palette.|
|I just love the shimmer on the leaves. |
The detail on this stamp is amazing!
|The peacock and other natural elements are reminiscent of the Art Nouveau period but the color is pure Deco. The two styles overlap during the transition period to pure Art Deco with all its geometry we all know and love.|
The roses look like they are dry embossed directly on the paper but it is actually embossed vellum adhered to the card. The inside of the card I left blank for a personal message.
So I hope you like it because I had a ton of fun making it! That is all for now! Leave a comment and let me know what you think.
