Art Nouveau/alcohol ad Cocktail Napkins

Today is an especially gloomy one. It has been raining here for I think four or five days straight. The only good thing (not that I don't like is just starting to get to be too much) is that I have gotten a lot of tedious crafting jobs done. I have been working on these cocktail napkins for what seems like forever. Don't know why it took me so long to finish them but i finally did. The fabric is hand died using an Ecru and then highlighted with salmon. All the stamped images were stamped in a warm brown and are from Natures Blessings. The Fabric Collage images are from Alpha Stamps, the are from the Wine Labels Fabric Collage sheet. The final touch is the seed beads that are a rich brown that really brings out the warm color of the stamped images and helps to bring out some of the iridescent shimmer in the napkins. These are currently one sale in my Etsy store. Hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I enjoyed making them...below are some more detailed shots.
