Flappers and Philosophers

Greetings, again! The Pink Team is up and ready to share with you their glorious creations for the latest challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu:  Art Deco. I have created a link to a website that I read before creating my own piece for any who would like to learn a bit more about this fascinating era.  

For my own card, I began with a card stock panel and working from images from the Flapper Fashions stamp plate by Artistic Outpost, I filled in the border using black StazOn Ink.  The flappers were stamped in the center and a date and sentiment were added last. The piece was water colored with Distress Markers.  It is difficult to see, but the border was given dimension with white Liquid Pearls.  After pondering a bit, I chose to finish off the panel with lengths of gold and white brocade tape that lend themselves to the Art Deco era. The finished panel was layered onto black and then mounted to the card front.  I resisted the urge to add further embellishments as this era seemed somewhat sleek to me. 

The rest of the Pink Team's projects will absolutely blow you away and are sure to inspire you to step back in time to create a lovely work to share with us.  I look forward to seeing your creations!

I plan to also submit this card to the August Referral Program over at Artistic Outpost.  Thanks for dropping by.  Best, Yvonne
