Seven Altered Playing Card

 We are doing an Altered Playing Card (APC) Swap on ArtVentures Group. The theme is Numbers, for September it is the Number Seven.
First, coated the playing card with Gesso and let it dry. Then covered the surface with a purple Distress Paint and let dry.
 Then, covered the surface with a purple Distress Stain.
 While the Distress Stain was still wet, added on Interference Violet Perfect Pearls and let it dry.
Stamped circle of "sevens" and 7 with black India Ink, then stamped a map portion with a purple dye ink and cut out. Wrote "Wonders of the world" on card stock and cut out and added to the APC. Punched a decorative purple card stock with a heart shaped punch. Used a white Gel pen to add a white border to the hearts. Then wrote out each of the 7 Wonders out on the hearts and added to the APC.

I found your awesome blog after following a pin on Pinterest. When I got here I was amazed and inspired. Then I saw your tutorials: thank you so much! I started a mixed media journey at the beginning of this year and finding your blog means I can now do more experiments. Thank you for sharing these techniques with us and I am now a follower and hoping to work back and through your technique tutorials as and when I can Karen x
