This week's prompt for Mixed Media Monday -- Playing Cards -- was especially fun as I just returned from a few days away in Las Vegas. We were there for a surprise wedding (a surprise to the Bride no less) and had a wonderful time being a part of such a special event.
The idea for Card "Shark" came when I saw this vintage postcard of a rather successful swine upon our return. I placed the image on the back of a playing card and used several colors of luster rub-ons (for color), rub-ons (the distressed circle and the "A"), crystals (natch), a coin and beeswax. It was finished with a bit of (yes, that one) green trim.
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the Bride happily, joyfully, tearfully said YES. . .
