With being unwell i have neglected some of the challenges i like to play along with. Today i am catching up with Claudine Criner’s Altered Playing Card Challenge. I do hope you take the opportunity to visit Claudine’s Blog and find some inspiration amongst her many posts and tutorials.
Both the altered cards.
Hope you can see the seahorse close to the ferns. This card has been gessoed before adding the colours and all the little bubbles.
Stamped the seahorse and the ferns onto tissue paper and then adhered them onto the card, wanted them to look like they were hidden from view.
Followed the prompts about using masking tape to keep an area clear for the focal image.
Stamped the Paper Artsy fish directly onto the gessoed background then added the words.
Followed both Claudine’s prompts, loved making both these altered cards.
Used a Paper Artsy heart and used my own hand writing to add the words.
This one was fun to make used DecoArt Media Misters for the drippage. Had already drawn into the gesso the flower shape on the left hand side. Added a heart over the top and the words which read love of nature.
Most people have gone for bright and bold using similar colours to Claudine.
Used one of the new Mirabelle stamps and a cute Monster from Stampotique. One is for Christmas and the other just playing with layering and Spectrum Noir pencils.
Both cards again have gessoed backgrounds, but i added a layer of card which has been put through a freebie embossing folder of snowflakes, added rainbow glaze.
When dry added the washi tape and the monster which was stamped onto card and then coloured with Spectrum Noir Pencils.
Kept to a similar palette but more pastel, the background card has been gessoed and a design drawn into before it had dried.
Added some pieces of book paper, a layer of flowers from a freebie die and then the Mirabelle Angel which had been stamped onto white card, coloured with Spectrum Noir pencils and then adhered on top of the layers.
Hope you have enjoyed your visit, looking forward to your comments.
