Two new altered playing card ATCs.  I'm having so much fun with these!

"Wild Roses are the fairest, and nature a better gardener than art."
  Playing card, tissue paper, clear tape image transfers, sequins.  I since added the name Louisa May Alcott to the card, since I searched and found it was her quote.  (A local home improvement store prints quotes like these at the bottom of each page of its weekly sales circulars.  Very small print, but I noticed it years ago.  Fun to make transfers from the quotes and use them on ATCs.)


"Whoever smell't it dealt it."
Playing card, tissue paper collage, clear tape image transfer, foil stars.  Image is from a Joann Fabrics weekly sales circular.  I like how the colors from the tissue paper background are coming through the transparent image of the boys -- makes it feel like a wrecked old vintage photo.  I was tempted to put stink lines by one of the boys to indicate who "dealt it", but then decided I prefer the mystery of wondering which one of them cut the cheese.

Thanks!

The clear tape transfers are so easy and so much fun to do.  In case anyone reads this and doesn't know how to do these image transfers, here's a tute I found online:
