Mona Lisa


I saw this stamp last month at Laura’s crop but I had already bought too many crafting goodies so could not buy her. She was the only one left and I was hoping when I went this month she was still there… yippee she was.

Decided I wanted her to be a pretty vintage card and I am very pleased with the end result. Stamped a script image all over the front of the card and stamped other little images on top ie bicycle, binoculars etc. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket and I stitched them on using a feather stitch. Used Rangers tea dye for the stamped images and fired brick, worn lipstick, tattered rose and black soot for the distressing. Used the Stamping Up three flower punch for the flowers and a MS punch for the leaves. A few more punched flowers with tan brads in the middle and a cream lace bow completes the pretty image.

I have entered this into the Quixotic Challenge #4: Tearing
