Altered Playing Card Week 5

I am enjoying altering Playing Cards over at the lovely Claudine Criner’s blog. Claudine is hosting this challenge and has a Facebook page especially for you to post your APC’s there.  If you don’t do FB then you post the link to your cards into the comment area for that particular week.
See the link to her challenge on the left hand side bar if you are viewing this on your laptop.

It is one of those challenges that pulls you in, Claudine is very generous with her tutorials and has shown us how to make some amazing backgrounds and her creations are always full of inspiration.

This week 5 is all about muted colours, layering and collage.

Here are my attempts:


Two gessoed cards, one with a pattern.


Blade Runner stamps i chose to use but had to use another image for my second card as the little girl image wasn’t the right shape or size for what i wanted to make.


Card 7.


Card 8.

I am quite pleased with how they turned out, not my style but i have learnt from the challenge, so thank you Claudine for another wonderful week.

Hope you enjoyed your visit, thanks for dropping by.
