Hello ans warm welcome to my new oh-so talented blog followers! Thank you for joining my little blog, I hope you enjoy reading my blog!
I don't know where the time goes! I get so busy my days just whip by and I just realised I completely forgot to post about my Altered Mini Playing Cards! In order to make it up to you I am going to share this week's one today as well. I might as well, right?:)
So here they are, my 1" x 2.5" wonders :)
The first one was covered in Gesso, then Dylusions and strips of cardstock used for another project. These strips had some Dylusions on them and looked very pretty so I decided to use them. Did I mention I am turning into a hoarder? Anyways, It was looking a bit too bright (not that it doesn't now, errr..) so I covered it in Gesso knowing the dylusions would show through anyway. I attached some dry wall tape, used my GlitzCraft glitter frosting paste in turquoise colour and played with my Cosmic Shimmer iridescent watercolour paints. When it was all dry I added some pretty sequins. I used a CD permanent pen to write onto the large sequin in the middle. I also stamped and added the sentiment and finished it all off with a bit of Glossy Accents.
The second one was Gessoed to cover up the chequered design on the back of the playing card and covered it in a tissue paper. This was coloured with my Cosmic Shimmer watercolour paint in yellow, orange and a bit of red. I swiped my Memento Rose Bud ink pad over the surface to highlight the crinkles and sponged around the edges a bit. I also added a die cut (Cuttlbug, Damask die), coloured it the same way and adhered here and there. The dragonfly was stenciled in using GlitzCraft stencil and their black glitter frosting paste. I stamped and chopped up the sentiment and added some black outline. To finish it off I fiddled with the tiny little black rhinestones and adhered them with some Glossy Accents and added some to the top of my sentiment. Ta daaah!
I'd like to enter them a set into the following challenges:
Anything But a Card - #37 Anything Goes
Scribble & Scrap - #22 Anything Goes
I hope you like them. Feel free to comment below. Thank you for stopping by!
All the best!
