Good for a Kiss...

Hi All!  I hope you are all well. Today I have a CAS card inspired by the Art Nouvea Challenge at Some Odd Girl. At first glance, well you wouldn't think of that era when you see this card (to be honest I had a bit of trouble with it. I'm thinking I should have used Kraft instead of the green base) But after a bit of my rambling, I may be able to stretch it far enough for you to see what I'm seeing. Lol.

The gist of Art Nouvea is European art that was inspired by curved lines, natural form (flowers and plants) and was the transitioning period to Modernism. So here it is, my curved lines are seen in the bum of Tiny Tia and the shape of the froggy and the Natural form is seen in the botanical dp used for the background and butterflies. Plus, I like to think that the yellow was inspired by the gold color of the inspirational picture. Lol, I know I'm stretching this. Sorry :)

If you want some gorgeous Nouvea inspiration head on over to the SOG Challenge Blog to check out the DT work (using the new gorgeous Nouvea Clear Stamps from SOG)

I also want to remind you that new Crafty Sprouts sentiments will be coming your way. There's a little bit of everything, especially for all my "Sparkly" friends.

Thanks for stopping by!

LOL, thanks for the explanation, it reads like a school paper when you didn't actually read the book (not that I EVER did that in school!) Now every time I look at my bum in a mirror, I'll think "Very Art Nouveau!" Your card is lovely by the way!-Raquel @ Raquelsdesigns.blogspot.com
