Vintage Hardware Cards with Lost Coast Designs

Hello Everyone,
I have been working with the New Woodgrain Background stamp and the Hardware Set.  I used Mixed Media inks, gold leafing, and heat embossing to create two masculine cards.

Metallic rubs were added to the edges of this card.  See my blog, Dreaming and Creating for more pics and instructions.

See you next time!!

Altered Playing Cards

I am taking part in a weekly Altered Playing Card (APC) challenge. Here are a couple of APC's using the gorgeously diverse stamps by Lost Coast Designs :

For this APC the topic was bees. The perfect bee was to be found amongst the gorgeous winged animals, More Bugz, look how realistic it is : 
Here is my completed APC, I have used a honey comb stencil, die, embossing powers and inks.
The wording is significant on this APC "Long live the Queen", this is not necessarily because I am a Royalist, but because the bee is such an important part of life and existence, lets have thriving colonies.

The second APC uses one of the awesome girls from The Doodle Dolls 1 Set :
I lightly gesso'd this playing card so that some of it would show through in the background, love that effect. The background is done with crackle paste and a stencil and dylusions sprays. The image is colored with copics and white and black gel pen.

Here is a close up of her, I think she is pretty special. You can also see the background more clearly :
Just over half way through the APC challenge, its fun to alter a pack of 52 playing cards and I am most impressed with myself for keeping up ! LOL
Thanks for stopping by x

Art Journal Quote

Hi all, Esther here,

This time I made another art Journal page. For the background I used some stencils, spray inks, markers and of course some Lost Coast stamps.  Travel Stuff and the Snowflakes set I used for creating the background. (Take a look at the close-up picture to see).

For the text I used my Favourite Licence plate set, stamped the text on some gelli print scraps, cut them out and glued them on the background.

Thanks for watching and I hope this page will give you some inspiration :)
