Art Deco

I've seen some Art Deco stamps by Card Craft UK a few times and been tempted, but hadn't bought them. Then, I spotted them reduced online, and decided I'd waited long enough. This weekend, I've coloured up two images, and this is one of the results.

I watercoloured the image. (I'm getting braver!) I used watercolour pencils for the skin and hair tones, and my Twinkling H20s for the rest. I made the three flowers which are painted to match the image, and finished it off  with some punched leaves and a swirl.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:
Let's Ink it Up where the theme is 'anything goes'

And the other one.
Very different in that this one is coloured with Promarkers. Some flowers made by me, the rest by Wild Orchid Crafts or obtained from the local pound shop.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenge:
The Crafty Pad where they want 'Girly'.

Hope you're all having a great weekend. I'm going to get back to learning to crochet!
