Altered Playing Card with my favorite ink

Simon Says Stamp and Show is asking for this week challenge, to use your favorite ink. That's tricky, because i'm mostly using paint. I love to alter things...so when i can't use my paints, the next favorite ink i'll use is alkohol ink. And just because there's another monthly challenge running at SanDee & Amelie's Steampunk Challenge *Altered Playing Cards*, i wanted to kill two birds with one stone.





Ok, i cheat a bit ( that fit's the playing card theme somehow *lol*), because the background of the tag is definitely paint. I had a play with a Master Skinner technique and he calls it *Walnut effect*. The tutorial can be found here. I'm always trying new techniques on smaller surfaces before i start a new project and because i'm never wasting anything, i used this tag as background, for my excuses.

Thanks so much  for reading and leaving your very appreciated comments (:o)

Grandios, liebe Elly!

Ein herrliches Tag mit einer wunderschönen APC darauf! Alcohol inks gehören auch mit zu meinen Favoriten... gefällt mir also doppelt gut, was ich da sehe. Ich glaub, ich muss meine heute auch rausfassen und benützen *lol

Danke fürs Mitmachen bei uns auf SanDee&amelie's Steampunk challenges!

I love it Elly!

But for me the card itself was already beautiful, with no tag at all! :-)

Elly...I am in some serious LOVE with this altered playing card project!! That card is amazing! I love all of the colors you've achieved. I've got to check out the tutorial from "Master Skinner". I love his work! :) But, your card has so much texture, detail and color! I also adore your tag and the "JOKER" blocks running across the bottom. They look awesome! Elly, I really do love your art. It's always fun and original! I also wanted to thank you so much for the kindness you left on my blog. YOU totally made me smile and made my entire day ... and it's not even 8 in the morning here yet! So, thank you! <3 Candy
