I don't know if I really took much inspiration from any particular item in the Erté site today - but if anything, I took the reverse masking from Athena. I just did a partial circle which, for me, makes a background for a sweep of her arms.
Erté stamp from Frantic Stamper, stamped on white card with black, embossed with clear EP. I used watercolours to colour her, then masked her and used a reverse mask for the red circle. Edged with a black pen, layered up on some white card embossed with Textiles, edged with black Sakura Stardust, and then layered onto an A2 base, with rhinestones added in the corners.
Thanks for such a lovely choice today, Stef.

Are you kidding me...this is an Erté stamp!!! WOW, I felt it worked so well when using mine, didn't know it was from him though. Cool!
Sabrina, of course you made this card stand out of the gallery you know. Love all that reverse and inverse masking bit! LOL (I would, of course get lost in all this). But you did divinely well my friend. Talk about feeling the art! Just love your take on Erté.
Hello there, missed the gallery some this week, but thanks for sharing this awesome artpiece!
