Distress oxide ink, Paperartsy Hot Picks

Diamonds postcard art

This month’s postcard swap I made for the theme of Diamonds are a girls best friend. 

I chose this stamped image of Marilyn Monroe from a Paperartsy stamp (not entirely sure that it is Marilyn but it is very similar and so for me… this is her!).  I stamped it in Versamark and then heat embossed it.

Once I had heat embossed it. I then added distress oxides using the wrinkle free distress technique. I then added some splashes of mica spray.  I then stamped the sentiment and heat embossed that too. 

I mounted the panel on tissue paper in pink colours and then the bright pink cardstock. 

Hope that the recipient liked what I did! 

Happy crafting!
