Celebrate 2010



I got carried away with the theme for this week's Sunday Postcard Art Challenge (Top Hats and Tails) and made two 4x6 digital postcards - as I figured the fancy dressed Gentleman must have a lovely Lady to accompany him to the celebration! I used Dover images, artist papers (Christine Adolph) and personal photos (champagne flute and bottle) to add to the gaiety! Layers of artistic filters added in Photoshop. I wanted to re-create the look of Art Nouveau posters of the early '20's.
