DominoArt~Harlequin Altered Playing Card
There is a super fun challenge blog that features altering your favorite game pieces! Each month the lovely hostess, Leigh, has a new challenge. The March theme is to incorporate the harlequin diamond pattern somehow with your altered game piece.
Please take a bit to hop over and share and support this wonderful alternative challenge blog, you will be pleasantly surprised! You can hop with this link, HERE
I love the Tim Holtz Harlequin stencil and embossing folder. I still need the stamp to complete my trio! So when I saw this challenge it was too fun to pass up! Plus,,,as I am sure you know I love altered playing cards! yay!

I embossed a piece of manila folder with the Tim harlequin folder. I inked the folder with Black Soot Distress Ink then passed it through the machine. Once dry, I stamped it using Potting Soil Archival and a Unity Chicken Wire stamp.
I die cut the fleur de lis from the manila folder. I stamped a separate fleur de lis from the same Tim set and heat embossed it.
The red flower is die cut and inked with Festive Berry Distress Ink.
This is the backside of the card. It is a deck actually used in a Casino, that is why the corners are clipped. I found this deck at a dollar store.
Have a wonderful day! Hope you have time to stop by and say Hi to Leigh!
