New Year ATC

I took some previously made ATC backgrounds to make New Year Greeting ATCs to send to some friends. These included: alcohol inks-spray-perfect pearls, waterstamping, versamark resist,  wrinkle free distress , salt resist, water resist, and two pearlized gesso.

On all but the first, I stamped a floral image on the top and left side and brushed on gold perfect pearls. Colored the edges of the ATCs with a gold metal leafing pen.

Then printed out a vintage image to add each one along with the phrase Wishing you the happiest New Year ever" and added to the ATCs.

Ten Altered Playing Card

  We are doing an Altered Playing Card (APC) Swap on ArtVentures Group. The theme is Numbers, for December it is the Number Ten.
First, coated the playing card with Gesso and let it dry. Sponged white acrylic paint over the surface and let dry. Sponged on Metallic Silver Lumiere paint and let dry. Then, rubbed some black chalk lightly over the surface.

Stamped a clock image onto printed tissue paper and stamped another clock face image on top. Cut out and adhered to the APC. Added some metal hands with a brad. Cut out 10 tear shaped black glitter card stock and added to the APC along with the phrase "Grief makes one hour ten" and the word "ten".
