Altered Card Swap - Part 3

Hello, my crafty friends (:o)

Today i want to show you my 3rd set of 13 cards for
The first set can be found here
The second set can be found here

The base are pre - gessoed playing cards

I applied DecoArt Media Modeling Paste and used a stencil ( Andy Skinner - Shedded)

Painted DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Medium Grey Value 3

Applied a layer of DecoArt Media Antiquing Cream Carbon Black

Even dry...the Antiquing Creams are non - permanent and you're able to wipe the Antiquing Cream's away as long as they are not sealed 

I wiped of the cream only from the raised areas and sealed with Ultra.- Matte Varnish

Painted a thin layer of Media Fluid Acrylics Quinacridone Gold

Applied a layer of DecoArt Media Antiquing Creat Patina Green

Again..wiped of the cream from the raised areas and sealed with Ultra - Matte Medium

Prepared *rusted* fabric strips, stamped some *used* coffee filters
and stamped the Pablo Picasso Quote
Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life

A number inside the coffee filter for interest

Then..  i had the idea of using a layer of BeesWax on the coffee filters

Some handsewing, too

You can still participate The Altered Card Swap
Happy crafting!
