let's go art deco (WMS)

Joining the Pajama Party - the Art Deco, B/W with a splash - at Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Love that product.  And I'm a sucker for Art Deco. Did you know it had a birth of sorts (furniture/glass) in the town of Nancy, France?  We've been to the museum there and the woodworking on display is phenomenal.  Even strolling the city streets is a feast for the eyes when you discover all the Art Deco elements in the architecture.  A few tidbits for you...

And here's my card for the PJ party.  I think this Folk Art Medallion has touches of Art Deco.  Lots of Versamark stamping and white embossing.  Which ain't fun on black if ya know what I mean ;)

 Hope you enjoyed your visit here today.  Thanks for looking.

Paper: cardbase Bringmann

  1. Love the Deco look of this card Maria. White on black is so pretty and that little pop of red just makes this card. Love it. My house was built in 1929, and has one or two of its deco designs remaining. Wish I had a few more...Have a great weekend. Bev

  2. Trying to figure out what I have in my stash that works... thanks for the photos...

  3. I really like your card - so beautiful and that little touch of red is super! Thanks for sharing the photos too - and no, my bank is no where near as lovely as this one!

  4. Love how you've dressed up the medallion, looks fab in black & white with the red bling centre.

  5. Lovely card. The museum grounds look interesting!

  6. Thanks for sharing the info on Art Deco and your wonderful pics in France!! The folk art medallion looks quite art deco in the embossed white on black - great card!

  7. Beautiful card, and lov ethe Art Deco pics!

  8. Gorgeous! I love the simple black and white with just the touch of red. Lovely!

  9. Love the white embossing! I'm also a fan of art deco; we're going on an art deco architectural tour tomorrow morning in Miami. Wouldn't have stopped in Miami otherwise. :-)

  10. Oh love it Maria, the little hearts sit beautifully in the medallion! and thank you so much for the photo's I enjoyed seeing those, sounds and looks like a great place to visit! Thank you so much for taking time to play along with us!

  11. It is definitely not fun to white heat emboss on black and I'm duly impressed that you did such a brilliant splatterless job of it, Maria!! In fact, I can't stop staring at it!! Hugs, Darnell
