Artful Times - Challenge 10


Von chose Mona Lisa as this weeks Artful Times challenge theme.  I made an atc using my Cherry Pie - Da Vinci - Woman plate of stamps.  I stamped in black archival and coloured the images with TH distress ink markers.  I used mustard seed, spiced marmalade, peeled paint, bundled sage and tumbled glass.  I mounted the main image onto black card, attached a piece of film strip with a couple of eyelets, mounted again onto white card and another piece of black.  The jigsaw piece was cut out and mounted with 3d foam.


Hop along to the blog and see what Neet and Von have made.  Please feel free to join. Don't forget to link your entry up to Mr Linky.

I always thought that Da Vinci was one of the best painters and inventors. He was my alltime favourite while I was young (Very long ago LOL). Love the Mona Lisa smile on your card!! Great idea with the jigsaw piece.
Hugs,
Marianne

Now where have I seen this stamp before... This is a fabulous Mona, and I love the addition of the film strip. You are so much better with the make up application than I am :o) I'm in next weeks Stampotique group, so it gives me an extra week to stress about what to make lol.
