CC Challenge Week 3 ~Alcohol MonoPrint Mona~

Week 3's CC challenge was the Alcohol Ink Monoprint.  I love using alcohol ink, getting the intense colors, for this piece of art I used the metallic mixative Pearl, which it gave it a more mutes tone.  in the picture there are two tags, the one on the left the colors are more intense, however I did not like how I stamped the Mona Lisa.  So I did the second.

And now the Alcohol ink Monoprint Mona.

Notice the Fragment, inspired from last weeks challenge.

The saying states. . .
"While an original is always hard to find, it is easy 2 recognize."

Stayed tuned for next weeks Challenge.

Be sure to swing by Linda's Blog, Studio L3 to see other great Alcohol Monoprint art work.


  1. Beautiful, Jason! I tried all the metallic
    mixatives....will try some with the pearl now too. Thanks!

  2. Fabulous tags, Jason! I like both methods of stamping, actually, and this image lends itself so well to the great colors you used! You're a talented guy, and I always look forward to seeing your art!

    (By the way, your vampire is on his way to you now. I got a little bogged down with end-of-the-month stuff, but he's en route and I apologize for the delay!).

  8. I like the subtle tones you've created - seem fitting for Mona somehow. I also like how the first one is really bright and looks as though there is light behind it. Lovely, both of them!
