We are doing an Altered Playing Card (APC) Swap on ArtVentures Group. The theme is Numbers, for March it is Number One.
I applied 3 layers of gesso on the playing cards. After drying, added a layer of wild honey Distress Paint and let dry.
Used a stencil to add an orange Distress Ink over a stencil (this color later faded into the paint background). Stamped "one" and dots on the APC with black India Ink.
Added a vintage image of a woman riding an ostrich. Wrote "you have to be ODD to be #1" in black ink.
