Art Deco Lots of Love

Good afternoon everyone, hope you are well :-) I am sorry I have been quiet recently-but I am really quite excited because I have been teaching myself how to machine sew and I will soon have some little projects to show you all what ive been up to! I am her with a card made using the Papermania Art Deco collection. I chose my image and placed it on a black glitter card mat, then added complimenting papers behind it. I then added a border to one side and a matching tag which I also backed with the same glitter card and placed on 3D foam squares. I then added gems on the top of the tag.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

So my job was to sort out the curtains and the decor to go with it. The bed was painted white and I chose Turquoise organza for my curtains. I thought for a while what sort of look I wanted and had the idea to make beaded tie backs, I wanted an opulent look so I looked for a good mix of Turquoise and other assorted vintage metallic beads, gem beads and pearls which matched well.  I found a fabulous mix of odd beads on ebay, then bought some plastic rings for my hooks, and the rest I had in my stash.  I also used Tiger tail, crimp beads, crimp covers and my jewellery tools.  I wanted to keep them as random mixes so I made each differently.
