#52CafeCards Week 22

Week 22’s Mixed Media Altered Playing Card Challenge presented by Maremi’s Creative Cafe on Facebook was V – Vintage. v -vintage kimberhew blog signed.jpg

A friend gifted me a beautiful package of vintage ephemera. I find it funny that the one piece I was sure that I would never find a use for became the centerpiece of this card, the 1880 Angels.

Products used:

  • 1880 Angels, fussy cut
  • Green “laurel” stems
  • markers
  • matte medium – used to glue down all the items
  • Inktense – “bark” to create the shadows
  • scrap book page (to paint with the salmon acrylic paint)
  • Stamps and ink
    • black and brown – Stazon
    • Diamond background stamp
    • label stamp – “Remember” handwritten on
  • Acrylic paint – beige, salmon
  • Gellyroll pen – black
  • pigma micron archival ink pen

While I had fun, not sure I will do another one of these soon. Hope you enjoy!

Rebecca’s Cat Gift Card

IMG_20170505_152319.jpgMy husband and I have become friends with a couple that are his co-workers. They are a very sweet. They have been very generous helping us attend several events. I made her a cat card as a thank you gift. They have several cats and they remind me of a cute cat couple. Their cute relationship is the inspiration for this piece.

Thankful for friends,

Kimberhew
