Hello. Welcome. Here's a couple more of the altered playing cards for Claudine's challenge. I am a bit behind so these are the week 9 cards. I posted week 10 the other day so only two weeks behind now LOL. Go HERE for Claudine's post. This challenge is such fun. Hugz
Claudine had a card with circles scratched in it. I didn't, but managed to add some in. Obviously my gesso isn't too firmly attached to my playing cards. Hope it stays put!! I coloured with Dylusion sprays
I doodled, added some washi die cut shapes and High Hopes Mer-Cat. How cool is he? I absolutely loved the sentiment Claudine used and I think it really suits the image.
For my next card I used very dilute orange acrylic paint and then stencilled with VersaMagic Tea Leaves chalk ink. The stencil is actually for decorating the top of a cake!! Love it.
I really liked this but then I realised I had missed out adding the tissue and the inking!! I made my own printed tissue using Kaisercraft Graffiti stamp and inked with Frayed Burlap distress ink.
I spent ages trying to find the right die and image and finally settled on Poppystamps Bountiful Sunflower cut from an orange metal sheet from Add a Little Dazzle. Then I decided to have it hanging down!! I added some burlap and lace to the bottom and High Hopes Snowbird. He was destined for a Christmas scene but seemed to fit here very well. I added the arrow, partly to cover up the gap, cos my sunflower was positioned a bit low!!, and partly cos I think this bird is a bit of a non-conformist. Snowbird will be joining the fun at Poppystamps, where challenge #3 is Sparkle and Shine, and also the Dazzling Diva Challenge #54.
I am liking these very much. Thanks for the inspiration Claudine, and thank you for taking the time to visit. Hugz
