Bead ATC

On 9ATC Group, the theme is Beads. I found a fun white dotted black glittery card stock, that looked like microbeads to me! Layered on an Eiffel Tower image on washi tape, black decorative strip and a vintage image. Used a Pearl Pen to create faux "beads" on the black decorative strip.
 Added some fun fibers and a white bead to the woman's hat.

Five Altered Playing Card

 We are doing an Altered Playing Card (APC) Swap on ArtVentures Group. The theme is Numbers, for July it is Number Five.
First coated the playing card with white Gesso and let it dry. Then covered the surface with a green acrylic paint and let dry.
Used a green Distress Ink to stamp a small floral background over the surface. Used the same ink to color the edges of the card.

 Colored some white paper flowers with vanilla.

Stamped "5" with black India Ink. Printed out the quote "The greatest gift of the garden is the restoration of the five senses. Added the paper flowers with added glittery paper cut out in a smaller floral shape and added a teal colored "pearl".
