"Veiled" Solitaire

August 4th 2011
Here is my new card I have made for the new challenge at the Soartful Challenge Blog which features this amazing picture - Gloria Swanson shot by Edward Steichen - as inspiration:


As you can see I have used the Solitaire Lace & Jewels image from CS Designs as I thought the veiled lace matched perfectly with this theme and once I printed it on the gorgeous lace pattern metallic paper I knew it was just right!!!


The CS Designs sentiment is also a perfect match for the image and theme of the card!


I've layered the paper with mounting tape to give a dimensional look and have added some old lave to the outside of the card. All the card and paper has a beautiful metallic "sheen" to it so it looks quite classy. To finish off I've added some pewter pearls.


I really love this and hope you do too!!!

I love the mystique to your piece and your point of reference, always love the drama of old style Hollywood images.
I agree with a previous comment, they would look amazing as a series on canvas or in frames.
Your work is so exciting.
