When this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge theme was magic, the first thing I thought of were face cards-- a magician's staple! I decided to alter a few of them and here's how they turned out:
I started out by coating some face cards with Gesso. I liked how the numbers and symbols looked, so I left them showing through to various degrees. Even then, it took about four layers of Gesso to get them to this point!
I let the Gesso dry overnight and then I painted over them with streaks of acrylic paint. Next I sprayed them with several different colors of Dylusions ink.
After that, it was just a matter of building scenes on top of the cards. I used fabric scraps, Washi, stamps and ink to create the layers, then added some cute collaged kids on the front.
I decided to make them sort of like alphabet flashcards, hence the words on each one. I got the words out of some vintage books that were falling apart.
I thoroughly enjoyed this project and used many fabulous supplies from Simon Says Stamp to create them:
