Tuesday Morning Sketches: Norma Jean

Good morning!  (Again, for Creative Card Crew post, please scroll...thank you.)  It's time for another sketch from the ladies at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  Our sponsor this week is Sassy Studio Designs.

I was really excited to work with this SSD image, which was given to me...I have always been intrigued by Marilyn Monroe.  I even did a research paper on her in high school!  I wanted to keep the focus on the beautifully drawn image, which is colored with Copics and pencils, so instead of adding panels to the two corners, I paper pierced some holes and added crystals for further definition.  This card is a big one...5x7 inches.

Image: Sassy Studio Designs Digital Image
Paper: Gina K. Pure Luxury CS, PTI Hibiscus Burst and True Black, Theresa Collins DP
Embellies: Swarovski Flatback Crystals
Extras: Copic Markers, Prismas/Goo Gone, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Crafter's Workshop Circular Template, Dimensionals

Here's a YouTube video you might enjoy: Elton John's Candle in the Wind (A tribute to Marilyn Monroe)

I am entering this card in the following challenge:

Stampin' for the Weekend: Sparkle and Shine

Please head on over to the Tuesday Morning Sketches blog to see what the rest of the DT has made for your viewing pleasure/inspiration.  Better yet, give the sketch a try!

Thanks for stopping by!

Great coloring on that Marilyn image, Angela. Simply love the bg paper that you used. The 'Smash' tv show is about producing a Marilyn Broadway musical.
