Pretty in her Hat

Well,I was almost stumped when the theme for the new challenge over at  was for Art Deco.  I will be honest and say I am worse than useless with that theme...but luckily I had been given a beautiful set of stamps by my friend and fellow crafter Rebecca when we did an altered paper bag swap recently.
For my DT piece I cut a piece of stiff mount board.Using the smooth side,which was the perfect colour,I stamped the image, the coloured her using a damp brush and distress ink pads...I just love her hat. Once dry I triple heat embossed the front, then I heat embossed it a  4th time adding a very light sprinkling of  light gold glitter. Unfortunately the glitter shows up as black dots in the photo.
The back of this piece I only heat embossed once, basically to seal the board, then I added the silver clasp and  added the ribbon.
I love this piece as I can't wear heavy jewellery on my neck,this piece is really light and has spurred me on to make another piece...which I shall post here in the near future.

Sandie: Found your blog via Eclectic Ellapu - loved your pendant and wanted to see more about it!

I also suffer from fibromyalgia, which limits my crafting far too often. I hope you are having more good days than bad right now!
