Skull Couple Altered Playing Cards


Here are a couple altered playing cards I made using the digital stamp set Love You to the Bone from Vera Lane Studio.

I gessoed both of the cards before I started. I applied 2 colours of Gelatos to each card and sprayed the one side and let it drip. 

I coloured all of the images with Prismacolour markers and fussy cut everything out. 

I added Glossy Accents to the eyes of the flowers, the 2 hearts on the girl, and both of their eyes as well.

I popped the skull flowers up on foam squares.

I used clear Wink of Stella on his shirt and on her bow. 

I added an epoxy heart to the middle of her bow and an epoxy star to the top of the boy's card.

I used Tim Holtz's word stickers for the sentiments.

I added black and white striped washi tape along the bottom of both cards.

I would like to enter this in the following challenge:

Challenge #82: For the Boys **(I'm entering the boy card)**
