card art

Last night I was doing various art things while trying to tidy up the place and somehow I started to decoupage this deck of playing cards. I used printed tissue paper and napkins so it would be transparent and the numbers would show thru.
Sneak peek number 10. The bear jar with the buttons is very old. I would have to say it goes back to the 50's. I think it used to be my sister's. The top to it is lost but I think it had a slot in it to be used for a bank. I'm sure it came with cinnamon or something in it or maybe not.

Remember this suitcase from last summer? It was purchased from a local thrift shop and was a dirty white color. I put a coat of tannish brown (that's a color right?) And started to stamp it. Well, wait until you see what it looks like TOMORROW!

OK now, you are just too busy playing ART. I love the deck of cards. I'm doin that. and I have an old attache case that I brought down from the attic just last week to decorate. I was going to first collage it and then play. Can't wait to see what you have done.
