Carol C's deco

Carol is a member of Art-Venturers participating in the 'Art' deco round robin. I decided to revisit a couple of fabulous techniques for Carol's deco. For the front I choose the March Technique Challenge from Tim Holtz's blog. I had done this in March. Instead of using acrylic paint, I stamped images with gesso and let it dry.
I made three different sprays with Adirondak inks & perfect pearls in mini misters and sprayed over the card stock and heat set.
Used a baby wipe, to wipe the spray off the gessoed images. Then I stamped a bird and some words with black Archival ink, added a saying and ran a gold Krylon pen over the edges to finish the front of the page:
For the back, I used the Textured Cuttlebug Card technique similar to the one shown by Annette Husband. I played with this technique in June. I ran 4 papers through the Cuttlebug with 4 different embossing folders. Tore them and used 4 different sections and glued them onto card stock. I slipped an image in the center and gessoed over the entire surface, then wiped most of the gesso off the center image with a baby wipe.
I placed a torn piece of paper over the image and sprayed the surface with a color mist of red ink & copper perfect pearls. I added more color with Brilliance ink pads and gold spray, the lightning black Brilliance ink was rubbed on with my finger and then wiped off, to make the embossing show more.I covered the image with clear embossing powder and the rest with holographic embossing powder and heat set.

Added a flower and a saying and colored the edges with a gold Krylon pen. Punched holes to finish the back:
