DCM Art Attack

Art Attack
I dare you to make a card inspired by a work of art. If the original art is out of copyright (this happens when the creator has been dead for 70 years or more) then you may use elements of the original artwork in your piece. Otherwise its inspiration only. Look out for colours, patterns, textures, compositions, shapes or themes that inspire you, and remember to show us the piece of art that inspired you to create so we can see the common ground.
Well, I have been out & about all day & forgot to upload my entry for this weeks dare over on the DCM blog!!! Shock, horror how remiss of me, good job these blogs can be accessed from anywhere!!!!
Here is my entry, you might need your sunglasses as my chosen artist to represent is Clarice Cliff. I love those bold shapes & some of the ceramics she did are gorgeous.
I much rather prefer Rennie Mackintosh, but couldn't come up with anything.
This design is made out of circles of paper & card with shapes cut into them. I used a heart shaped punch for the flower.

I love the geometric style you've used, very reminiscent of the 20's and Clarrice Cliff in particular. A fab card!

Happy Easter
