I had some note cards with Monet's paintings on them and I wanted to do something with them to make them mine, but without detracting from Monet.
The first card is his painting "Haystacks of Giverny".
I printed on vellum a quote by Monet "Everyone discusses my art and pretends to understand, as if it were necessary to understand, when it is simply necessary to love." and then put it over the painting. I debated whether or not it would obscure the painting too much, and finally decided it looked good.
The second card is one of his Japanese Bridge Over Pond series. I had to cut some off of the left side
to fit the square card. I punched the smaller SU square punch and then the larger one to leave a thin frame around a square of the water lilies. I matted the whole thing on a pink that brought out the color and used pop dots on the small square to add some dimensionality.
