The Roaring Twenties

Hi everyone! Never had to make anything related to the Roaring twenties before, but plenty of wonderful things to pick on. In the end I chose to illustrate the flapper girls. they must have loved looking so different and doing the wonderful dances and wearing those fabulous dresses. Good job I didn't live then, my figure is too 'curvy' to wear that style, but they sure looked good! I found some stamps that I used on an orange distressed background. Luckily there was even a newpaper cutting stamp for what a 'flapper' was!

The stamp set is by Artistic Outpost and I layered up the ladies with sticky pads. Then I found some swinging discs for the bottom and threaded up some beads to hang from the top. I'm off to Charleston my way through the day now! I loved all your Italy tags, can't wait to see what you have come up with for this week! Hugs x

  7. All the elements work so well together. I especially like the definition of a 'Flapper'. I once went to a costume party dressed as a Flapper and won 1st place. I even did the Charleston!

  10. Great tag, Barb! Love the colors and the Flapper description. Yes, I too am way too curvy for that style. I'm quite hourglass --even without a corset!
