TMTA - "Marilyn Monroe"


Think Monday Think ATC's challenge this week is to make an ATC featuring Marilyn Monroe. I created my background on glossy cardstock with Tim Holtz alcohol inks, and then stamped my image of Marilyn on glossy cardstock, hand colored it with a Versamark pen and watercolor pencils, and glued it to the background. Then I embellished the card with Stampendous stickers. I finished up with a little paper lace and edged the ATC with a silver leafing pen. (Sorry about the poor quality of the photo. The lighting in my house is awful, especially at night.)
