WS - Altered Playing Card

This weeks challenge on Wednesday Stamper is to alter a playing card. I've been struggling for inspiration a lot recently so sitting down with a challenge to meet was great, I really enjoyed getting into the creative spirit with this.



I used a giant playing card and rubbed the surface with irridescent turquoise paint - I adhered gold leaf while the paint was still wet. The background is distress inks and platinum utee. The letter and domino are both finished with alcohol inks and the title is stamped. I really like how the colour changes depending on which angle you view it.
