Over at Sandee & Amelie’s Steampunk Challenge blog, the challenge for the month may is altered playing cards.
As I am still in paper mode and my prima engraver paper pad was still out on my desk, I thought I would try some altered playing cards with this.
I also had some fimo clay pieces that I made with my stamps left, so I thought I would just play around a bit.
I distressed everything with my favorite distress ink pad, walnut stain. I think it works really well with this paper line. Actually, I think it works really well with almost everything.
I first covered the cards with a layer of golden matt gel medium, as it makes them a bit more receptive for whatever I might want to put on them. And then just had fun with embellishing the lot.
Here are some close ups of the cards. I think card no 1 is my favorite, because I really like the fimo embellisment and how the colors of the original card are still visible.
And all together =)
I like how they turned out and as I now have a lot of cards that cannot be used for card playing anymore, I guess I will be making more altered playing cards =)
Thank you all for watching and I wish you a wonderful day.
