Mucha Stampbord Block
This is a 6 x 6 Stampbord Block (the kind with wooden sides) from the Artistic Stamper. The Mucha is from Clarity Stamps and the background stamps are the Royal and Langnickel Paris set. This piece came about because I have loads left on the sheets of Chipboard from Craft Obsessions, and I just thought this particular bit of chipboard looked very Art Nouveau and would follow the lines of the halo of stained glass behind the Mucha lady's head. The glorious gold paint is Viva Precious Metal from Paper Artsy - did I say how much I love this paint! I scratched back to the clay to highlight her candle as it didn't stand out enough. I thought the Paris wording also looked Art Nouveau and it made me think of a Metro station, somehow.
