I am playing along with Claudine's Altered Playing Card Challenge. This is such fun and I am sure it's not too late to start. Come on, dig out those old scruffy cards and make them beautiful. Actually I am having almost as much fun looking at what people are doing as doing my own set LOL. I have decided to try and follow Claudine's cards as much as possible. If left to my own devices I am sure I will end up with everything blue and filled with bunnies ROFL. I have also decided NOT to purchase items I don't have but to use alternates in my huge stash. This is of course subjects to change!! Bwahahahahahahahaha.
This is two for one as I am catching up so here's Claudine's Week 3 cards. And here's mine......
CARD 3 My alcohol ink background using Slate, Ginger, Caramel and Mushroom. It was too yuk so I added some Bottle to lift the colours. I decided this looked Autumny so I switched the finishing touches...
Birds, leaves and letters all Sizzix cuts. I added distress inks to the leaves for extra colour.
CARD 4 I used DI Dried Marigold and Scattered Straw and Vintage Photo round the edges. I stamped with Memento London Fog and something blue. Stamps from unknown sources
Sizzix gears and Cheery Lynn steampunk hearts and compass dies.
WEEK 4 Caudine's Week 4 cards and mine........
CARD 5 I used Fresco Finish Rose and Pansy paint, some tissue I stamped myself and then doodled. Ooh, I don't like them doodles
I cut clouds from DCWV paper, also the plane and the sentiment. Covered up that ugly doodle nicely LOL. The 'house' and bird are PaperArtsy stamps coloured with fresco finish paint and glitter glue. I used Stampotiques Rabbit and some DCWV wallpaper. The lower doodle looked like a fence so I added one the other side as well LOL.
CARD 6 Green and yellow acrylic paint with some paper tape at the bottom and a doodled border. I liked that one Claudine.
The girl is a Docrafts embossing folder, coloured with DI and cut out. The words are a favourite sentiment written by me. I did try to outline in white but the gelly roll didn't like the acrylic base!!
I did take pictures of the paired cards, but paired them wrong!! so may add those again later. So much to do to catch up with everything I missed the last few days. Thanks for all your kind comments and support. Back soon with more cards cos it's a new week and Claudine has a new set for out joy and delight. Hugz
