Mixed Media Monday - Playing Cards

It has been absolutely months since I did any paper craft, but this week was the perfect opportunity. Over at Mixed Media Monday the wonderful Anni has given us the challenge prompt of "playing cards". so what better excuse to search out one of my over sized playing cards. The card was distressed with gesso and distress inks. I used a computer generated image and words that I distressed with inks. The piece was then finished off with various pieces of gold German scrap. Thanks for the fun, Anni!
