Card Samples, Weekend Inspiration with Delphine

Weekend Inspiration with Delphine: Oddball Marilyn

Hello everyone! Delphineabella here for my last Weekend Inspiration post for 2023, but I’m already preparing for 2024 with something a bit different today. When I realised I was posting on December 31st, I knew I wanted to use ODDBALL MARILYN – I find her perfect for festivities and special occasions.

Today, I’m using her as the first page¬†of one of my journals – it’s a planner page, but I don’t use planners as planners, just simple journals for me, since planning is not really my thing ūüėČ

I stamped Marilyn in Memento ink on watercolour paper to be able to play with different media and I coloured her in Copics first. The alcohol marker colouring is not as precise on watercolour paper, and you must be careful with the black lines of your image, but it works well otherwise. I then coloured my background using watercolour pens and added touches of colour on Marilyn‘s scarf too. I then used pencils and Posca pens for a bit more definition and contrast on my character.

To decorate my page, I added details with texture stamps, die cut numbers in glitter cardstock and added a lot of glitter touches with stickles and glitter pens – in the end, it’s a very girly page!

Thank you for stopping by today, and¬†I wish you a wonderful New Year’s Eve, with a beautiful beginning of year! See you in 2024! Hugs,

    Beautiful card… and so appropriate to bring in the New Year. May we all find more kindness, friendship, happiness, love, Joy and Peace in 2024 and beyond.

    This is really GORGEOUS! I went back a couple of times to admire her sparkly dress and the pink tints in her feather shawl and the blues and pinks in the background. STUNNING!
