This week's Altered Playing Card theme is thinking about hearts and love.
These two cards have paint, splatters, patterned hearts - both hand-stamped and hand-drawn, washi tape, words, borders and dots.
I started off by painting both the cards and putting aside to dry. With the card on the right, I started off with a lime green background followed by a blob of pink which I then wiped off again, leaving the background sort of soft & dreamy looking.
I started by stamping a border around all four sides on the first card.
I stamped the heart (Stampotique) and wings (Craft Stamper freebie) onto patterned paper and cut them out. I then stamped the words (Craft Stamper freebie) onto white card and cut them out individually. The 'wings', 'heart' and 'love' are all popped onto dimensionals, with 'live' & 'laugh' glued directly on the playing card.
After the paint background was dry on the second card, I added some splatters using a stamp (SU) and a red brush marker. While that was drying I drew two hearts on the back of the patterned paper and cut them out. I then outlined the hearts on the correct side with a black Posca paint marker. As I don't have any plain black washi tape, but I did have a snippet of lacy washi paper, I added it at the bottom. I then stamped the tiny words over the top. The hearts were added next, and to finish off I added dots of red Liquid Pearls on the edges.
(I only realised when I photographed this that one of the dots has smeared - oops!)
These two playing cards were easy and fun to make ........
