we chose art deco as a theme for my local atc group this month. i printed an image of an art deco-style wood door on brown parchment cardstock, then i printed an image of a 1930's ad for a lingerie company called kestos (a greek word for the corset worn by aphrodite) on vellum and trimmed it out. i layered the vellum over the cardstock with matte gel medium and accented with a bronze pitt pen and crackle medium. lastly i tinted the ladies with a little yellow copic marker, and embellished with ribbon and little pearlies. these poses just crack me up!
