Art Deco Glamour
I chose this particular lady as the colours are fabulous, and they turn out exactly as they should be on printing from my printer.
I made up the card as a large slightly narrower than A4 but A4 in height (image can be printed as small as you like) as it was requested to be a large card by a customer.
It is printed onto white linen cardstock and I've added a punched border to the outer edge and threaded it through with silver ribbon. I've not done this before but am very pleased with the result - I think it works very well with this card. I printed out the same lady to use as decoupage but printed this time onto super smooth card and it really makes a difference for the finish on the dress. I took quite a while to add diamond sparkles to the head dress and the trimmings on the dress to make it look like they are hundreds of tiny jewels (I think it works). Also I picked out some detail on the dress with the diamond sparkles to add some shimmer to the flow of the dress.
I've added a simple white circle cut with a nestie and a computer generated sentiment topped with a lovely sheer white double bow.
I am delighted with the finished result of this card and hope my customer will be also.
