Meet Marilyn!


Meet Marilyn from Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!  This is a rubber stamp.  Whenever I think of Marilyn Monroe I always think of this iconic pose.  I decided to go with the color scheme of blue and yellow and really love how it turned out!  I used Copics to color up the image.  The layout is from a sketch from the Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 challenge blog.  I used the Spellbinder Decorative Label Eight to frame the image.  Designer papers are freebies from an old magazine.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I also used the McGill Designer Pine punch.  The doily and ribbon are by Crafts.  The sentiment comes with the rubber stamp. 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
