Christmas Mona Lisa!
The stamp is from Hero Arts - Collage Mona Lisa.
I started with a white tag and built up bright colours with Distress Ink - Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed, Fired Brick, Peeled Paint and added water splashes which I then lifted off with a towel for some texture.. I added lots of dot details using sequin waste as a mask and then stamped the design using Archival black ink. I also stamped my tag onto scrap and cut out the shape so I could use it as a mask to add more yellow tones to the area of the stamp to make it stand out from the background. I used water to lift some of the colour from Mona Lisa and then painted in the holly using peeled paint and the berries using fired brick. I also added some shading to the Eiffel tower using Iced Spruce. I used my white gel pen to highlight some details of the stamped design and then added some cross-hatch patterns around the outside to add a little interest.
An alternative Christmas design!
