Rubber Dance Spring Challenge: Altered Playing Card

Hello there!  A few weeks ago I saw a YouTube video by Gelli Arts showing gelli printing on tissue paper.  I've been wanting to try it ever since.  I have a deck of playing cards sitting on my desk begging to be altered and it felt like the perfect mix.

(I've also had this bird die forever and never used it.  Shhhh...)  After ripping and layering the printed tissue papers, I added some acrylic paint, stamping and a die-cut.  Easy breezy.

Here's what it looked like after ripping and gluing on the tissue paper:

I lifted the litle birdies off the base of the card with dimensional foam tape and let them bask in the sun (Inka Gold).

I have really slacked off on my 52 weeks of cards; I think it's been 3 weeks now since I've created one.  Yikes.  However, no time like the present to start back up again, I say.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.  Happy Spring!
