Anyway, I treated myself this week to a new cd released by Joanna Sheen called 'Age of Elegance'. I don't do a lot of cd crafting these days (as I love my stamps and pens) but I just couldn't resist this one! I love Pre-Raphaelite art and have quite a few large framed prints around the house (there were some grumblings that the lounge was starting to look like an art gallery...) and when I saw samples of the artists featured on the cd I'm afraid it became a must-have. And they make for wonderful 'vintage' style cards and creations. I've used 'Ophelia' by John William Waterhouse for this one
There are lots of wonderful backing papers on the cd too with art nouveau designs and ones from William Morris. So if you like that style of artwork, do have a look at the cd. I've used two of the backing papers, with distress inks on the edges, and Kaisercraft 'postmark' stamps. I've added some flowers from WOC and kept the colours quite soft and muted. There is a Marianne die cut swirl and some lace, pearls and ribbon from stash.
And the inside decorated to match.
I think this might be going to my lovely sister-in-law who also loves this style of art - and who earlier this year bought us a fabulous framed print of 'The Lady of Shalott' by Waterhouse!
Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned. Back soon,
