Mixed Media Altered Playing Cards



I have always wanted to alter some playing cards and participating in a handmade happy mail swap over on the Art Across The Miles Swap Group was the perfect opportunity.I went my usual route and used my go to mixed media techniques on these.Lots of texture via stenciling. stamping, glitter, collage and finishing off with some lovely stamped images and die cuts.These are made to match with the Handmade postcard that I had shown in my previous post

Here are all three.I have to say I loved working on a small surface and I am hooked.Do look out for more of this in the future.:-)



Can you see the glitter?


I struggled with this one a bit and had to rework on the humming bird for it to stand out from the background.The white die cut helps, I think.

This is my least favorite of all three, though I like the stenciling in this one.

That’s all for today.Hope you like the project!
