Renaissance Men Challenge

Mona Lisa Flies Card
I created this card using a Mona Lisa rubber stamp from Inkadinkado. I stamped on a color mottled piece of scrapbook paper. The Leonardo da Vinci quote came from a Limited Editions rubber stamp. It's been awhile since I pulled my rubber and ink out of the craft cupboard. I added some butterfly wings from my Dover clipart collection. The card is embellished with a pink wooden bead, six red rhinestones and a pink paperclip.

I created this card for the "Renaissance Men" challenge going on at Frilly and Funkie. The challenge was to create a project inspired by one of the great art masters. I chose the Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo da Vinci.

The card also fits into the following challenge themes:

Octopode Factory - wings
Simon Says Stamp and Show - what do you say
The Crafty Pad - things with wings
Catch the Bug - anything goes

I hope you like my altered Mona. Please take the time to look at the artwork displayed on the above listed sites.
