Deck of Altered Cards
I think I've mentioned a few times that I have been working on a deck of cards. Well, they are now finished and have hopefully been safely delivered to America.
You can see I have made batches of backgrounds. If you stick a group of cards to a 12x12 sheet of paper you can paint 12-15 cards as one.
This time I tried a grungy look by scraping some of paint off and revealing the cards.
You can find out about the swap at jessicaleighbrogan.com/cardswap/ or join the facebook group - you are probably too late for this swap but join us for the next one? :)
Another goal from this swap was to use more of my handwriting and rely less on printed text.
I'm really pleased with the two pastel cards at the bottom of this last photo. I used my handwriting book - The Scrapbookers Handwriting Workshop by Crystal Jeffrey Rieger - and really enjoyed it. The concentration it takes to write properly instead of my usual scrawl is immense and really knackers the M.E. Still I think it is worth it for the results.
Thanks for stopping by!
