THREE Altered Playing Card

We are doing an Altered Playing Card (APC) Swap on ArtVentures Group. The theme is Numbers, for May it is Number Three.

Applied 3 coats of gesso to the playing cards and let dry. Then added a coat of pink acrylic paint.

Used worn lipstick Distress Ink over a floral stencil, then barn door Distress Ink over a swirl stencil along the right edge and let dry.

Stamped a collage image along the right border with a red Archival Ink, used this ink to color the other edges of the playing card. Stamped the number 3 with black India Ink.
The worn lipstick Distress ink faded into the painted background. So sponged fired brick Distress Ink over the floral stencil over the right 2/3's of the card.

Added a vintage image of 3 people in a wedding party. Wrote "Three's a crowd" in a "thought balloon" with black ink.
