The Can Can

I love this art style. 

JFF Rubber Stamps Can Can rubber stamp

Toulouse Lautrec's art shows such an intimate peek into 1880's Parisian nightlife. He was supposedly in love with a dancer named Jane Avril, who commissioned him to paint this poster as an ad. The dancers are performing the "can can"  which was kind of like "twerking" in the 19th century. It was shocking to respectable society, which made it even more popular. Even if it meant the dancers could be arrested for doing it! I thought the ladies deserved a little extra "flash", so I added some Diamond Stickles and a three part bow. I made the medallion from an Ideology facet, a little Glossy Accents and matching card stock. 

You have until 9:00PM tonight to join our "Die Cut challenge" for a chance to win a JFF Rubber Stamps gift cerficate. Go die cut something and share it with us!


  1. Such an awesome stamp and I love the added stickles and elegant bow and design. I didn’t know they could be arrested for doing the can can!

    1. It was a risqué dance in the 19th century. Moulin Rouge dancer La Goulue was well known for flipping her skirt over her back to show her derrière...she had a heart embroidered on the seat of her drawers!

  2. Such a neat card, Wendy! Love the stickles yu added.
