Mona Lisa

Hi! Just got back from France and couldn’t wait to get back to crafting.

I just received the new A Day For Daisies club kit and this, combined with the Mona Lisa challenge from Artful Times, gave me the idea for this card. I thought it’d be fun to have a child paint the Mona Lisa.

I cropped the ADFD image, to remove the childish drawing included. I found a black and white image of the Mona Lisa online and printed it onto some card that I’d made when experimenting with inks last week.  I printed out the child, cut out and coloured it, and then paper-pieced with some of the same inky card. I printed and cut out the quote.

As well as the Artful Times challenge, I’d like to enter this for the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge – ‘What do you say? ‘


  1. Love how you have printed onto your own backgrounds to make such a fun card with a great quote :)
