All Kinds of Love In This World...

"There are all kinds of love in this world but never the same love twice." ~ F Scott Fitzgerald

Good morning friends and hope you had a lovely bank holiday...

Thank you to all my new followers from yesterday's post and I just wanted to say welcome to my blog and hope you'll enjoy all my future posts as you join me on my journey...

Today, I wanted to share the first of two cards that I made for Making Cards Magazine. This set was featured in the September issue of the magazine and if you want to read all about how I created the cards, then you can get back issues of the magazine HERE.
I adore everything about Art Deco including the fashion and the architecture and I hope that I've captured the feel of that wonderful era with these cards that were inspired by The Great Gatsby. The stamp set that I used is the 1920's Ladies Plate from The Artistic Stamper and the stunning papers are from My Mind's Eye. I coloured the images with Distress Marker Pens.
 The Art Deco emblem that I used at the top of the card, was hand drawn by moi and there were templates available in the magazine. To complete the card, I added some fluffy feathers which after hunting high and low, I found in John Lewis and some flowers from Prima Marketing!!

 


So, that's it from me for today and I'm going to be taking it a little easier over the next couple of days and rest a little, as I have a very important date on Thursday with a very special man!! *deep breath*...I'm going to the Tim Holtz workshop....*squeals*!!! It's going to be a huge day for me but I am looking forward to it so much and I promised myself since day one when I found out Tim and Mario were coming to the UK that I would get there even if it kills me...lol!!!

I'll be back tomorrow with my second card from this set but until then...bye for now and have a wonderful day!!
Love Emma xxx
