Rainbow Lady's Challenge #134 - It's All New To Me

Posted by PicasaEverything I have used here is new to me - except the copper mirri board, black base card and the sakura glaze pens used to colour the coat on the art deco lady.
The 'feathered' decorative paper is from a very lucky find in a second hand book shop. I was overjoyed when I found a resource book about marbled paper and inside the back cover was a CD with all the designs. The paisley panel is from a Stampers Anonymous background stamp coloured with Desert Sand, Canteloupe and New Sprout Memento ink, I bought this in the summer and have never used. The main image is one of the Art Deco ladies from Debbi Moore which I got in the sale before Christmas.
The flowers are made from copy paper painted with Eco Green Pure Copper and Black acrylic paint. They tone perfectly with the card.
I found this card a struggle to make because I have lost my creative streak for the present. I do hope it comes back soon! Thanks for calling by and thank you in advance for your comments - they do encourage me.

    How lucky were you to find that book?! I've bought quite a few second hand books, but that one is simply brilliant!!

    Love

  7. An amazing card - Can't think why you think you're not on a creative streak - and what a stroke of luck with the cd. The marbled paper is fabulous - hope we'll be seeing a lot more of it.

  8. Janet, you definitely haven't lost your creative streak. this is gorgeous. I was so impressed by your wonderful find at the book shop that I almost missed the fact that you made those beautiful flowers yourself. I enlarged the view and still can't tell how you did them. They are wonderful.
