"happy" Altered playing card

Hello Crafters!

Has the Mixed Media Bug bitten you?  It has bitten me and I am loving it!  The New Year's Resolution to alter a full deck of playing cards has been a fun project so far.  How great it is to play with new mediums and learn new techniques.  Today's altered card used one of my favorite mediums from Imagine Crafts: Creative Medium.  The card used Iridescent Chartreuse and Metallic Copper.

The playing card had black Gesso applied.  After drying, the Sunflower template (by TCW) was used with Metallic Copper (in the center).
The petals were created using Distress Ink in Fossilized Amber and Texture Paste.  The leaves used Iridescent Chartreuse and a drop of Peeled Paint Reinker.  Yellow acrylic paint and Tim Holtz' honeycomb stamp was applied to corners.
Elizabeth Craft Designs' die "happy" was die cut in white and applied as shown.
Yellow acrylic was applied to the edges and the altered card was complete.
Thanks for stopping by!  I do hope you enjoyed the altered card.  And don't forget to leave a comment on the prior post for your chance to win the "Dream" die from Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Have a happy, crafty day!
Big Hugs,
Kathy Jo
