Altered playing card

This is for a swap on UKS hosted by Hazel. Now I started out making ATC's from playing cards, but I didnt want to do that! Instead I decided to make a shrine to my playing card, luckily the only card I could find was an ace and not just a boring number LOL. I stamped my shrine (which came from here) and embossed it using brown embossing powder. I then rubbed perfect pearls over the top and added a charm.








When I added my playing card, it looked a bit boring, so I coloured it with alcohol inks and 'eh voila!' i just hope the recepient likes my homage to the humble paying card!

Thanks for looking everyone x
