This week's 4x4 Friday was to add Mona Lisa somewwhere on your artwork. I thought this would be tricky as I have no stamps of Mona or ink in the printer, but I did find this B&W pic amongst my ephemera collection. I am so glad I built this up, printing off images when I see them as now I have a few to play with until the new cartridges arrive. My background was made by randomly stamping, using archival black ink all over an A4 sheet of card with clock & key images. Once the ink was dry I applied acrylic paints in reds oranges & browns. I added touches of gold & left to dry completely. Once I'd stuck my Mona onto it, I added bits of eggplant chalk ink to give more depth to the colours.
I inked the edges with back & stamped a floral flourish in Brilliance coffee bean.
