Art Nouveau

This week's challenge at CD Sunday  is Art Nouveau. I found this image on Joanna Sheen Fashion Boutique CD. I printed it out on glossy card and tried throwing embosssing powder on it quickly and heating it ...didn't quite work but some of the powder stuck to the darker colour on the image and formed a sort of dew drop effect I quite liked. (Of course, doesn't show up on photo!)

I cut out the centre of the image and layered it onto another copy , using 3d foam. The background paper is from a  My Paper Stash pad that came with a My Craft Studio CD. It has a bit of sheen on the flower. I mounted everything onto dull gold and added a Sizzix die cut corner.

This is gorgeous Marina - I really love this image and have used it quite a few times - I usually decoupage it up in some way too. Good luck in the challenge.

The shape of this card is just perfect for the image you have chosen and I like how you have 3D'd it.
