Eight Altered Playing Card

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

First, coated the playing card with Gesso and let it dry. Then covered the surface with Vintage Photo Distress Stain and let dry.
Placed a heart shape piece of paper over the APC and stamped a musical score image over the APC with black India Ink.

 Placed a heart shape mask over the APC and sponged Old Brass Lumiere Paint into the heart shape opening.

While the paint was wet, pressed in a flourish stamp and removed some of the paint. Let it dry.
Punched out 8 black musical notes and added over the heart shape. Added the phrase "My heart beats in eight counts" and the word eight.
