To Two Too

Hello  Welcome.  Yesterday I was asked about my Altered Playing Card deck and had to sheepishly admit that I still had 6 cards (and Jokers) to complete.  So I picked one of Claudine's posts that I had bookmarked as unfinished.  You can see Claudine's cards HERE



Week 22 Claudine added elmer glue to her cards.  I used wood glue and two shades of green Dylusion sprays.  The card on the right I had squiggled the glue and it really shows up with the Jade spray.  On the left I somehow managed to get lots of little bubbles which actually are nicely highlighted by the green spray.



I added some cool washi tape I bought at IKEA the other day.  The markings are green and perfectly matched my background.  I also did some stamping with a tiny, but very cool Prima stamp.  



Looks a bit like a summer picnic.  The tea service and tea bag are all Viva Las Vegas stamps.  They actually come on wheels but I cut them off during the fussy cutting.  The circles are Sizzix swirl embosslit die.  The words are also Sizzix dies.  I cut them black but they vanished a little against the tape so I added some white pen.  



I've used the same tea themed stamps and Wheeley Winged Cat from Viva Las Vegas stamps.  The cat lost his wheels as well, but retained his crown.  I added some bits of the same washi tape and more Sizzix letters.  The film strip is also a sizzix die and I added small London themed pictures from a Crafty Individuals image book.

  4. These are brilliant! I am such a fan of your whimsical way of thinking and I love how unexpected your art is. I never know what I'm going to see and it's a treat to see what elements you put together in such a clever way. I really like how these turned out. And wow! Who knew that you could buy Washi tape at IKEA? Another reason to love that place! And I also love London (where I lived for over a year), so of course I adore all those nods to London. Excellent work, as usual, and I'm so glad you shared these with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
