Emma's Challenge #13

Welcome to Challenge #13 at Emma's Cards.
Thank you to all who took part in challenge #12, it proved very popular and the standard of entries was very high. The lucky winner will be announced shortly.
This month our theme is "Art Deco" and we are being sponsored by the gorgeous Glitter Girls. They have kindly donated a prize of one of their wonderful boards and ball tool. There is more about that at the end of this post.
Meanwhile, here is my DT card.

All the cardstock and paper I've used is from Kanban. I made the template myself for a traditional Art Deco shaped card, it fits in an 8"x8" envelope. The image is from the Art Deco CD from Card Creations Plus. I printed it onto textured paper and cut it out with an X-Cut oval die.

I had printed the full image four times but decided to only decoupage her skirt. I added feathers and pearls and highlighted her headband and armband with pale gold Smooch. Then I used tiny pearls and black liquid pearls around the edge of the oval.

I printed out the FABULOUS and die cut it with the smallest X-Cut oval die then I tied a gold bow, placed some feathers behind it and tucked in one of my handmade pins. I finished off with black pearls on the base.

If you're a big fan of the Glitter Girls, do join them on their Facebook page and keep up to date with all their latest news. The girls have generously donated this fantastic Fanciful board and ball tool for the lucky winner.

I know Art Deco is very popular so I look forward to seeing your crafty creations. You don't have to make a card, it can be anything you've handcrafted as long as it fits the theme.
