Altered Playing Cards, Week 12: Let's get personal

Today I'm sharing my two Week 12 APCs with Claudine at Claudine's Art Corner.  I encourage you to check out her latest blog post to see how she created her APCs this week, because, after imitating her cards, I didn't see a need to provide any step-out photos of mine.

Claudine started with scrapbook paper, but those of you who have been to my blog before know the only scrapbook paper I have are the pieces Claudine sent me, which I thought were too busy for this project.  And yes, my backgrounds are usually all handmade rather than of the lovely scrapbook paper type.

This background paper was made using silver and blue glazes on heavy white cardstock.  I added the flower and butterfly left over from a time I visited my friend Kathy and used her dies.  The "I" is a sticker, and the words were written with a Zig pen.

The second card started as watercolor paper, over which I applied Twinkling H2Os.  I started once again with a sticker, then used my green Zig pen, which quit working about half way through the wording.  I had to finish everything, including the lines, with my Micron pen.

Since we have no APCs to make next week, I have a week to finish these cards.  Thanks for looking, because I already know how I'm going to fill the lines on both of these cards: with brutal honesty!

Today is the 26th day
of AEDM, and I altered two playing cards.

Thanks for your wonderful flattery. I think you are so wonderful at sticking to your challenges. You have a pile of discipline which I have not! Don't forget to put that on your great cards!

Great job, Elizabeth! This week was fun and easy even though I made it harder by going in a different direction. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

These look great Elizabeth. I will take a handmade background over scrapbook paper any day although some of it makes a nice base to paint over!

Gorgeous backgrounds Elizabeth, so colourful and just right for this weeks challenge. Glad you are going to fill them in honestly away from the prying eyes of the www.

Am blogging my last three weeks later today, then i will have caught up once again! :-) xxx
