Claudine's Week 6 cards can be found HERE
Card 9 I painted my card with primary magenta acrylic. I did take a picture but it was boring so I'm not showing it to you. So there!! Claudine used Tim Holtz stamps for both her cards but I don't have those but I do have a Sizzix embossing folder (don't know the name) so I inked it up with Colorbox Plumeria chalk, put in a piece of white tissue and ran it through the bigshot. Then I glued it down and while it was still wet I rubbed areas away to expose the background. OK, you can see a picture of that
Card 10 This was a non-starter cos I had nothing Claudine used and no ideas. So i decided to splat some frayed burlap and fired brick distress stain on my card. I liked that and decided to fill the gaps with copper acrylic paint. I didn't like that but when I tried to wipe it off it went all like this, which I did like. Don't you love a happy accident. (This photo is a little bit red. I think I caught the metallic gloss so actually the finished card photo is more like the real colour. Say la doo dah)
Honestly, I don't know what happened!! I found these Retro Halloween stamps and decided to use the witch's head, but she needed a body, so I used the skeleton stamp. Then it looked like the diet had gone a bit wrong so I added the bubble alphabet stickers and DRS spooky eyes to break up the background. The bat looked suitably surprized so I stuck him on as well.
What a pair!! I am loving this challenge and all Claudine's fab inspiration. I am loving my altered deck. I am trying to think up a way to display them. They are too cool. Am I allowed to say that about my own art?? Yeah, why not.
