DCM Art Attack

Had fun with the latest DCM challenge set by Rhi.

I dare you to make a card inspired by a work of art. If the original art is out of copyright (this happens when the creator has been dead for 70 years or more) then you may use elements of the original artwork in your piece. Otherwise its inspiration only. Look out for colours, patterns, textures, compositions, shapes or themes that inspire you, and remember to show us the piece of art that inspired you to create so we can see the common ground.
I love the work of Mucha and thought I'd have difficulties interpretting his work. I've used one of his paintings as part of the card and highlighted colours patterns and textures through the inking, stamping, flowers, swirls and ribbon. I really enjoyed "working" the inkpads into the textured card. The sheer ribbon was an attempt to capture the more delicate quality if the lady's dress and hair.

Just like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all the lovely people who take time to comment on my creations and words. It really means a lot xxx



Ingredients: Mucha print from vintage images CD, chipboard swirls by TLC, blue flower by Blooms to Go, other flowers from various local sources, stamp by Clever Cut, crystals and chiffon ribbon.

This card is beautiful! Funny thing - my girlfriend is related to Mucha, Mucha is her husband's great grandfather. She is Shannon Mucha at http://www.blu-bambu.com/blog/ ! So the kids in her photos are Mucha's great great grandchildren!

I really like your card. I'm not familiar with Mucha, but I'll go and do some research. Interesting to see what Shona has to say :-)

I love this.

It's almost like a mini scrapbook LO - which of course is what lots of our cards are, I suppose!
