"Marilyn Monroe" The East Wind DT!

Howzit Everyone!
WOW!  I can't believe it's the 1st of August already, this year sure is flying by fast!
Today I'm sharing my DT inspiration for our new challenge over at The East Wind featuring this month's newsletter freebie Aurora 'Marilyn'.

Challenge #60 is "Outta this World"

The star of my card is Marilyn on the subway vent so I coloured her in her iconic cream dress with Copics and Prismacolor pencils.  The background is a combination of brown Derwent pastels, blended with a Dove blender pen, Pumice Stone Distress Ink and Prismacolor pencils. 

I used a Spellbinders die on the two right corners...the die cut out the pattern and then I glued it back in again with just the black cardstock mat peeking through.  I also used a die cut as a stencil to add a touch of the same design to the left corners.

I completed my card with a touch of Diamond Stickles Glitter glue on her earring, arm decoration and the die cuts which sparkles like the stars when the card is viewed from various angles.

Come and join the fun at The East Wind...we have 2 blog challenges every month and fun challenges on on our Facebook TEW Group too!
