Carte a Jouer # 1

Just joined a challenge to alter a pack of 52 playing cards organised by Isa. The first card is to be a mixed media card with a flower using a technique with embossing powders and vinyl glue. I used a piece of sheet music as the background with an inked edge. I then spread glue thickly onto it and various colours of embossing powders sprinkled finely and heat embossed until the right texture is achieved. The glue bubbles and moves as you heat it and gives a cratered effect. A flower made with the same music paper, held together with a brad and all embossed with the same technique was applied to the card and a recycled piece of shiny contrasting ribbon used to decorate the top and bottom. Thank you Isa for the challenge. http://carteajouer.blogspot.com there is a French to English translator button at the top of the page
