A fun week 9 of the altered playing card (apc) challenge.This week is sponsored by Susana's Custom Art and Card Design (SCACD) so I pulled out my wonderful SCACD stamps ...
For the first apc I used this funky and cool steampunk fish called Incandescent Light . I colored him with copics and fussy cut him. Unusual fish call for unusual background oceans, and so the pink and turquoise dylusions background came about, and I added glitter paper circles. Initially I was planning to just use a circle behind the lantern, but I loved the look against the background, so they circles multiplied. The apc is edged in Stampendous aged copper embossing enamel. The sentiment is included with incandescent light image :) These fish always remind me of Finding Nemo, but this one is waaaay cooler :)
The second apc uses a very different image from SCACD, this is one of the images from the archeological dig set. I painted the background with Paper Artsy chalk acrylic paint in stone, and while the paint was wet I sprinkled a little flocking in brown and pale blue - you can just see the tiny speckles around the image. When the paint was dry I stamped the dinosaur skeleton image in brown archival ink. Then I used a brick effect stencil and green distess ink on the background, added some washi tape, some jute and finally a thin layer of Kroma crackle in some spots around the edges. Doesn't he look great :)
Here are my two apc's together for week 9.
