Mona Lisa

I thought I’d showcase another stamp from the Penny Black “Take Flight” catalog.  If you haven’t seen the new stamps, you should.  There are so many gorgeous stamps to play with.

I don’t know about you, but it sometimes feels like forever before I actually finish the card – from the composition you have in your head, coloring and just putting all the pieces together.  In any case, here is my card using Mona Lisa illustrated by Alex Smith.


SUPPLIES Stamps (All Penny Black) Mona Lisa; Fleur de Lys; Salutations; Flowers and Wishes Papers: Cardstock – Solar White (Neenah) Inks: Black Dye (Hero Arts); Prismacolor Pencils Other: Labels 7 (Spellbinders); Zing White Embossing Powder (American Crafts); Versamark (Tsukineko)

I decided to just highlight her by showcasing her like a portrait.  I colored the image with Prismacolor pencils then fussy cut the oval.  The card panel was white embossed with the new Fleur de Lys background stamp.  I then used an image from this clear set to look as if the oval was hanging off the card panel.  The image was then adhered with dimensional foam.
