Smile Please

With the enigmatic smile of the Mona Lisa in my mind and a wonderful weekend spent with my crafting friends in Yorkshire I created this card.

A plain Kraft card was used as a base. The flowers were white Prima which I sprayed with yellow and green Dylusions colour sprays.  They were centred with shabby shutters Distress Sticles and stuck in place with glue dots.

The stamped image (Lost Coast Designs) was stamped with Memento black ink and coloured with pale lemon Copic Marker before trimming out.  This was applied on foam pads to raise it.

All papers used were from a 6 x 6 pad by Prima (Alla-Prima).

The image was layered onto a background paper (sewn around the edges) and applied over two mats cut with the Big Shot using a Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 2 Die.

The sentiment was a self adhesive sticker matted onto pale green card and again applied on foam pads.
