Mona Lisa

Mona Lisa 4302K  Charms 30-173
Thank you everyone for your enthusiastic response to the announcement of my Stamp Squad assignment at Penny Black. To prove what I said yesterday about their stamps covering all styles ... I've gone cute today using Penny Black's wood block stamp Mona Lisa. -  with some alterations!  Somehow I don't think the Mona Lisa would be as famous if it was just "Mona". Mona Lisa sounds much more romantic!

Well, maybe this is Mona Lisa's sister "Just Plain Mona", living in her castle tower, waiting for her prince to arrive. He must be late, going by the expression on her face as she checks the time.

And wait!! Is that a bow and ribbon in her hair? Or is she being attacked by the castle spider??

The castle "walls" are embossed with a Cuttlebug folder; the clock is from the Penny Black transparent set, "Charms". Ms. Mona is colored with Copics. Had to add some white dots for interest (and because I have a white pen that works!)

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you found a smile!!

Mona has never looked sweeter! Your fussy cutting is quite awesome and I love how she's gazing at the clock. And waiting....I did indeed smile BIG!

Judy the creative thought you put into this design is fantastic. Love the soft thread bow in her hair and how she is looking at the clock.
