Hi There Creative Embellishments Fans! Sarah here today to share a set of Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) with you – inspired by two Hollywood Icons, Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. I’ve used images fussy cut from some print-outs of paintings by the contemporary artist Michael Moebius  – the Audrey Hepburn painting is called “Tiffany Blue” and the Marilyn Monroe painting is called “Pink Flavour”.  I always make two sets of ATCs so that I have one to keep and one to trade!


I’ve used one of each of the Creative Embellishments Mini Ornate Frames on each ATC.  I painted them with Prima Art Alchemy Paints in colours that match the bubbles on each image. Then, I added Ranger Crackle Accents to the frame to get a crackled, vintage look. The backgrounds for the ATCs were created with Prima Art Extravagance Antique Silver Crackle Texture Paste. I inked the edges of the ATC with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Black Soot. I  also used papers from the 6×6 paper pad of Prima’s Vintage Emporium collection. I added quotes by each actress to their ATC :

  • Audrey Hepburn – “I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls.”
  • Marilyn Monroe – “A smile is the best makeup any girl can wear.”

Here are some close-ups of each of the four ATCs!
