She has been married for 15 years to an amazing man, Gary. Their two daughters Sinead and Monique are the “apples of their eyes.”

Cut the acetate to 15cm x 15cm, square folded card. Use two colours of alcohol inks on the acetate, butterscotch and salmon pink. Drop some of each ink onto the acetate, use the blender solution at the same time. Wait for it to dry then stamp the leopard on top with black ink pad. Open the card and stamped spots onto acetate. Glued cardstock behind leopard. Inside put same size cardstock.


What an inspiration Marilyn's art is!

Thank you, Marilyn for sharing with us!

Be sure to return tomorrow to see whatour Design Team is creating with The Robin's Nest products.

  2. These are really interesting cards. I love the one with the real feather attached. And I'd forgotten about the technique to make the multi-layered card using one image. Lovely! Anne, yourmainestamper

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
