One Stitch at a Time Challenge 47 (Post 1)

This week on One Stitch at a Time, we're sponsored by Make it Crafty who are offering a prize to the lucky winner. The challlenge this time is to be inspired by this photo, or if that doesn't work, go for a good luck wish.
And this week, we're spotlighting one of the artists at Stitchy Stamps - Hope Jacare whose image 'Art Nouveau Vase 2' I used this week.
I love this style of image. I've had no formal training in anything artistic and really don't know much about artists and designers, but I've always loved this style. Hope Jacare has several images in this range, so if you share my love, go and check them out!

It's coloured with Promarkers, and I inked the background with Versacolor ink. The backing paper is my own, using colours close to those in the image. The border uses a Spellbinders Borderability die, and I've finished it with some sticky gems coloured with Promarkers to match.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Everybody Art Challenge who'd like to see 'Our Favourite Thing' - this is my favourite design style.

Kaboodle Doodles who want us to 'Bling it Up' (I think that row of gems qualifies!)
Paper Minutes who want to see flowers
Crafts and Me who want 'monochrome'
Crafty Sentiments who want our favourite things. (Mine are Mackintosh-style images, promarkers and sparkly gems!)
Do You Stack Up who want patterned paper.
Some Odd Girl who want scallops

Gorgeous Autumnal colour Josephine, it all works so well. I was fortunate enough to train at Glasgow School of Art so was often surrounded by CRM's work and other Art Nouveau designers. Cheers and thanks for a lovely project.....Claire x
