Altered Playing Cards

That’s the requirement on Theme Thursday this week. I have been doing lots of different things this evening: I’ve finished 4 altered domino pins, lacquered his n hers ‘Dia de los Muertos’ bamboo dominos, prepped a textured collage box, managed an inkjet transfer (No.2!!), completed step 3 of page 3 in my altered board book and played with my mixed media canvas. Here’s another ‘spooky’ offering:

The purple scrunchy stuff is a piece of kite material which melted nicely when I applied my heat gun to it and it stuck to the gold EP, so no glue needed. The pointing finger by Home Impressions was stamped onto tissue paper and then applied to the card with gel medium. The skull is from the Lisa Vollrath domino sheet I bought earlier this year for the bamboo doms. It’s a great image innit?!! I wrote BOO! on a scrap of card and doodled cracks around it. Had a lot of fun with this one… which will be stuck to one of the panes in our front door to scare the Trick or Treaters, along with last year’s Gothic Arch!!

Who says I don’t like kids? 😉
