altered playing card

This was a first, I've seen them before and love the end result.

To be honest, I didn't do much with mine as I had chosen to do a quote card.

standard size playing card
'Beautiful Words 1' Gecko Galz
2 butterfly die cuts Tattered Lace Mini
stick on flower
red & blue pigment ink
silver gel pen
I resized the image form the design sheet and printed it out. The playing card edges were inked using a foam square and Christmas Red pigment ink, I then pushed the edges into Royal Blue pigment ink and gave it a quick rub with the foam to blend the colours a bit. I left some of the red pattern on the playing card showing.
I stuck the image onto the card and then found a bit of doily, butterfly and flower to cover over  the corresponding images. Lastly I edged the letters with a silver gel pen too make them stand out more.

  1. Hadn't realised that was the red of the playing card showing until you said. It looks very effective. Can you do one in Grape now!! Hugs Mrs A.
