Ahhh Marilyn...


So let me first say that my camera is taking some funky pictures because Marilyn's eyes in person do not look so cat like :). I did this for the challenge at Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #34 they have amazing sketches over there so I had to do it. They seem to have a victorian/antique feel to them which I love so I tried to channel them and come up with my own. I promise I followed the sketch to a T it's just Marilyn is covering up the brads on the bottom. Hope it still works. Marilyn is also from an earlier project and had printed 2 of them. I used one of them and the 2nd I couldn't bear to throw away so I kept her knowing I'd get to use her soon. At 365 Cards: Day 306 they asked us to "dig deep into that stash and find something that has been waiting for this challenge." TahDah! I'm partial because Marilyn is my favorite but I like it. So the paper I got from... my sister. The brads I got from Walmart in the Crop-A-Dile. The flowers I got from my sis and they were white and in one flower. So I took them apart then used Pixie Pink and colored them and then stacked them. I like it and am now going to have to get more white flowers so I can dye them. I used glitter on Marilyn's jewels and colored in the flower, the leaves, part of her hat, and her eyes with colored pencils. I hope you enjoy. V
