Hello.  Welcome.  A special Hi and Hello to Sid.  Welcome to my lovely following.  Hugz all round.  

Here I am with my week 17 altered playing cards.  This week Claudine used the same colour background and birds.  You can find Claudine's cards HERE

I used a mix of red and pink acrylic

I added some paper tape, made black paint circles and finger painted the black zig zag.  I drew the hearts and used my white pen to swirl inside the black circles.  

I stamped the owl on some painty paper I had left over from another project.  The hat is a dylusions stamp watercoloured.  The sentiment is a Unity stamp.  

I used black embossing paste and a LaVon stencil.  Thanks LaVon.  I also added some black paint lines. 

I stamped Crafty Individuals Owl.  I added some black paint dots and doodled some white flowers and added some more white doodles on the embossed flower
