Really enjoying playing along with the Altered Playing Card challenge over at Claudine Criner’s Blog.
Seeing as my printer has not been replaced i am finding it a challenge to add any of the digi images that Claudine is using, i have downloaded some of them but doesn’t help when you can’t print the images off lol.
It seems that an a little group of us don’t do FaceBook, Google+ and most other social sites so we are posting our blog links into the comments section on Claudine’s blog.
The other ladies so far are:
Will add more if you wish to visit as i find them, please pop over and leave them some love too.
So, to this weeks APC’s.
The cards this week were Home Sweet Home and Retail Therapy. I sort of stuck to the prompts…
Used two different embossing folders over a gessoed background, one from Sheena Douglass called Arches and a Sizzix one which is a haunted house.
My obsession with using mop up towels/tissue to add texture has struck again, i hope you don’t get too fed us seeing them on most of my projects lol.
Added Pan Pastel colours and Metallic Pan Pastels over the texture of the folders and the tissue.
To finish used Walnut Stain to add a little more definition over the sides of the arches and added hand written words saying, Therapy Through The Arches. The arches can lead you anywhere, retail or spiritual therapy.
Had more fun with this one, added a coloured spot of tissue with a Doo Lally Pip stamp from Lindsay Mason onto the APC to add a little spooky.
Sanded over the embossed house hopefully giving that old run down mansion style from The Munsters or The Adams Family. I was thinking of Thursday from the Adams Family when i added the words Good Times.
Hope you enjoy the Altered Playing Cards this week.
