Have managed to catch up with the last three weeks of Claudine Criner’s Altered Playing Card Challenge. It has taken me ages to feel in the mood and then the inspiration hit all at once…
Claudine had a little change of direction after her image transfer didn’t go to plan and changed the theme to Outside the Box.
Had a little fun with this one, here are the images.
White painted background, images from National Enquirer magazine. Used Robin Williams and Monica Lewinsky faces with little changes to their features.
Coloured them with Kaiserfusion alcohol pens.
Added Inkadinkado animal stamp images coloured with alcohol pens and Sakura Glaze pen.
Added some blue faux pearls to Monica, a doodled border and the words I Got The Cream.
Added some Zendoodling to Dog Data, this is how i think dogs see data lol.
Used a Stabilo All pencil to add some outlining to both the cards.
Claudine wanted us to use mop up paper towels we had collected for backgrounds but used Pan Pastels instead.
The snowman, snowballs and snowflakes are all rub ons but they are old and took an age to adhere.
Used Pthalo Blue tone and Ultramarine Blue tone a hint of Magenta and Pthalo Blue for the background on both Altered Playing Cards.
Snowtex from DecoArt makes a great dimensional snow border, added some fine blue glitter on top so it stuck and added a glisten as it dried.
Added some glitter stones to look like smaller snowballs.
Winter Coat shows the cute Inkadinkado Chihuahua stamp coping with the winter snow.
Pan Pastels colour the background and dog alongside the rub ons and the extra snowballs.
I am entering the Chihuahua card called Winter Coat into the Pan Pastel Challenge Cold and Frosty Colours.
Claudine’s post is all about Thanksgiving this week so she wanted us to write about what we are thankful for and what i like about myself.
Opted for other topics, are you a dog person and how do you communicate.
I like the TH texture fade called notebook, used this on both the APC’s one of them didn’t hold up too well but it gave some fab textures and tears.
Pan Pastels have some wonderful colours in the red and brown shades. Over the top Treasure Gold was added to highlight the lines and dots.
The dog head is the part i cut off to make the Dog Data APC and added a sim card to the communicate APC. Will fill these out over the next few days.
May i wish a very Happy Thanksgiving to my US followers and may we here in the UK take time to share in their day of reflection and sharing.
Thanks for dropping by.
