You should be coming to me from Marissa's blog .
After, head on back to Gloria's blog.
Once a month a group of us will get together to inspire, share, and show you how to use up

My project this month is an altered deck of playing cards.
I joined a swap with Jessica Brogan called the
Inspirational Card Deck Swap.
Alter 52 cards, send them out and get 52 back.
How fun is that?
To create my cards the backgrounds are all from my underpapers
(the paper I cover my desk with to catch errant paint, mist, and stamping)
I added some more stamping, Sewing pattern paper,
Wasii tape etc...
Some cards have embossing
(to allow me to use pigment ink which NEVER dries on paint)
The hearts on some of the cards were created by cutting
free hand from painted pieces of book text.
I have tons of sheets of word stickers
so I would cut them up to say what I wanted, AND
make a huge dent in my stash
52 cards sure is a lot.
They all measure roughly the size of ATCs.
That is 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
Almost to the end...
To finish them all off I flicked watered down acrylic paint
over them all.
I love me some splatters.
Well that is it for this month's
Make to check with us every 5th of the month to get inspired on ways to
use that hoard.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
