Jack of 'Arts...


Just wanted to pop on and upload my first altered playing cards for the swap NettyB's hosting over on UKS - we're working our way slowly through suits, and the first is Hearts... Hence my rather guilty-looking photo of 'Jack' - a little boy with a love of jam tarts -  caught red handed...! 

I've used a differnt technique to my usual photocards (in which I age the card and adhere the photo) and this time have mirror-printed onto acetate, then backed with card and framed, reminiscent of a projector slide, and I'm rather please with how it has turned out.  I hope that the recipients like them, because I really enjoyed coming up with my design, and can't wait to see what other people have done with the theme.

Thanks for looking! Leanne x

Hi Leanie

Love these altered cards they're fabulous!

I've never tried this but you've made me want to have a go. (mmm I'm wondering if I could incorporate altered cards in a box)

Thanks for visiting and leaving a lovely comment and thanks for the inspiration!
