The challenge has been set by Claudine. Altered Playing Cards. Here's my first 2. I was hoping to post 3 and 4 as well but they are still works in progress. Tomorrow, tomorrow, la la la, la la la........ Get yourself a cuppa and come and join the fun.......
I have only 1 Dylusions spray, Cut Grass, so I used that with DI Mustard Seed. I like how the scratches and some of the blue card back show through.
My first card! I used Sizzix border die to cut the palm trees in black card. I added some white pen highlights, and also to some of the scratch marks. There's a couple of childish birds out there as well. I cut the sun in black and have written fear less, or maybe fearless, with white pen. The sentiment is a STAMPlorations stamp from the Subway Art Builders Create set. I'm going to enter this card STAMPlorations monthly challenge where they want stamps and markers.
I searched the stash and found SmoochSpritz Log Cabin and Tattered Angels Pewter Glimmer Glaze. Spritz, splash and a little black archival around the edges and a little bit more. I like how the brush strokes in the gesso show through.
Card 2. The owl and the sentiment are stamps from Unity Stamp Co. I coloured Woo Hoo Owl with DI Picked Raspberry and Salty Ocean. I added glitter glue to his glasses frames and glossy accents to the lenses. Some of the glitter migrated into the glossy accents! I added two tiny glitter blue hearts cut using a Cheery Lynn die. These cuties are negative cuts that are usually thrown away. The small stamps are various from PaperArtsy stamped onto DCWV patterned papers. A little IKEA spotty tape and that's 2/52!
I'm also going to join these beauties over at
