First Love - Challenge #52 TPS

One of the first artist's works that I fell in love with while in high school was Art Nouveau's Alphonse Mucha, in fact I still have posters of his four seasons images somewhere in my basement. So when I received this gorgeous image from The Paper Shelter, I knew that I just had to find the right paper to replicate his style. 

This beautiful little lady is A. Mucha Influence - Winter digital image from The Paper Shelter.  She was colored with Copics and Prismacolor pencils, Viva Decor pearls were added, and a bronze glow was added to parts of the image with Luminarte Radiant Rain.  The sentiment, ribbon and metal label holder are all from my stash, and the fabulous dp is from Graphic 45's Steampunk Debutante collection.  The challenge this week at The Paper Shelter is "Add A Sentiment".

The very talented and generous Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter are offering you a fabulous prize of  $20 to spend on whatever your like in their webshop, if you use one of their gorgeous images in the challenge this week.

 They have such fabulous things to offer you -  digi stamps, papers and accessories and all at such wonderful value.  If you do not use one of their images, you can still enter the challenge to win 3 of their images of your own choice.

Jump on over to The Paper Shelter Challenge Blog and check out the other design team members gorgeous creations and enter to win.
