Altered Mini Playing Card - week 26
I hope your weekend is going well?
Before I waffle on about my next altered teeny tiny piece of weekly art I have a question. What are your thoughts regarding leaving replies for your comments? My blog has been up for about 6 months and it has been great! I have made many new friends and interacted with many more which is always enjoyable. I always read and reply to all of them and it is fun, but it does feel pointless sometimes as I don't know if people actually get to read my replies. I know from my own experience I either forget to click 'notify me' or people just don't leave replies. Then when I do click 'notify me' I get the pleasure of getting emails with all other comments which have nothing to do with me. In all of the blog land in the whole 6 months I have found only 1 friend who actively replies to all of her comments. I have come to the conclusion that as much as I enjoy leaving replies to individual comments I am wasting my time a bit and therefore starting to think that I should stop doing it. I usually visit a blogger back if I get a comment anyway and leave a comment there which seems a more sensible option. It;s not that I'm lazy to leave one, I have simply noticed that people don't reply to their own comments and most likely don't get to read my replies. What do you think? Now onto this week's mini playing card.
You can see the previous ones HERE. I started with a gesso-ed background, played with some Dylusions, added splatters with my bright pink Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paint and stamping with my black Stazon and a Prima 'Book' stamp. I used a tiny lid and water for my 'ghoasting' technique here and there to add interest. The die cut is from the 'Damask' Cuttlebug set, sponged and stamped on with a Rose Bud (pink) Memento dye ink (same stamp). I made the flower by running a piece of vellum in the Damask embossing folder, brushed the raised areas with my Gesso, punched out the flower shapes, put them together and added the flower sequin. To finish the card off I added a few tiny black rhinestones. The blue glitter got there by accident but what's a bit of glitter between friends ;)
I hope you like my 1" x 2.5" altered playing card. Feel free to leave a comment to let me know and I will reply.... OR WILL I NOT??!! :)
I'd like to enter this into the following challenge:
