When you want to convey the mood of a rich, bold and lavish eclectic style, Art Deco images are the perfect match. The images usually contain formal wear and show what appears to be the very best in taste and style no matter the variety of sources.
I've used newly released Art Deco Rita for an unusual yet elegant Christmas card. You can find this lovely digital image here. Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image showing my attempts at making a black leather lounge chair.
I've cut a pheasant tail from a Zucker Feather Products pack and added a natural feather that I once found on the ground in South Carolina to carry the flow from Rita's hat into my card. A few Recollections mulberry paper roses keep my feathers in place. My Dymo Label Maker provided the perfect holiday greeting for supporting my card. A few Prima Say It In Crystals black rhinestone swirls add a bit of bling to my elegant theme.
The inside of the card contains a border of the flocked wild cheetah pattern with plenty of room to add a special handwritten note and/or stamped sentiment.
You've just got to hop over to the Crafts and Me Stamps Challenge blog to see how the amazingly talented Dynamite Digi girls have shown how they've kept the blues out of their fabulous projects while using Crafts and Me Stamps digital images.
