Altered Playing Cards #3

I am playing catch up- I am wanting to try to keep up with this challenge, so worked on last week's challenge- I need more hours in the days!
 The ATC's are made on Playing cards- they are both covered with Gesso. I added Alcohol inks on the Lt side as per the challenge. I used SU images and a sewing themed stencil- on the Lt you can see a vague brown stencil of a measuring tape. I added Wink of Stella to the flower centers and the heart, and the buttons are from a SU Sizzlet.
 The Rt ATC is colorized with Ranger Distress Inks in fall colors, and the Oak leaves are a Cheery Lynn die. The leaves are cut with scraps from my Technique Junkies bucket, and the sentiment and background stamp are from Sweet Stamps.

 We have a wedding tomorrow in Chicago, so I will be visiting Blogs on Sunday : )  And stamping....

I hope you have a Blessed weekend!

Thanks for stopping by!

Shelly, your altered playing cards are fantastic! Love how you coordinated the colors of those two, but how they were made with different techniques!!! We have to get together to stamp!!! I need to "pick your brain" as my mom would say! I don't know how you find the time to do so many techniques! You are amazing!!! Hugs, Laura
