Art Nouveau

How stunning is this Art Nouveau lady?
I got a couple of these beautiful stamps
( my win over at Papertake Weekly)
from the lovely Beckie at Lilac Lemon Designs.

I haven't used a stamp like this before,
so I wasn't sure how to colour it.
In the end I went for this monochrome look
and used just a few grey Copics.
I also added some stickles glitter here and there.

I am entering my card for this week's challenge at Sketch and Stash,
I have followed their sketch and, of course, my new stash is the stamp.
This is another of those cards that look better in person... honest!!
The picture doesn't really show the glitter too well,
or the lovely texture of the black, velevet ribbon.

Stamp - Lilac Lemon Designs, Art Nouveau Lady,
coloured with Copics and stickles glitter.
Design Paper - Papermania Capsule Collection, Monochrome.
Small roses from Wild Orchid Crafts.
Heart charm from The Hobby House
Black velvet ribbon from my stash.
