I spotted on the Male Room's Blog today that the challenge is to be inspired by a famous artist.
A set of stamps came to my mind from Chocolate Baroque. This could in fact be made into a bauble as it has a little stamp to make the hanger but I though I would simply leave it as a circle.
The artist is Gustav Klimt. I remember seeing so much of the effect of his work in Vienna... from scarves to coasters and jewellery. All fabulous!
Here I simply used one stamp... which had to be embossed in gold, and paired it with an embossing folder from Cuttlebug, to emulate the swirls in the design.
The sentiment is from Woodware.
I die cut the circle and raised it onto dimensional pads so that a hint of the gold beneath it peeks through at various angles.
I enjoyed making this one, thanks for the inspiration Male Room!


  1. Wow! I love this card. That stamp is fabulous and pairs beautifully with the EF. Love the colours you've used too. x
