Mixed Media Monday-Playing Cards


Well when I thought of this weeks theme the Queen of Hearts immediatly came to mind. So I decided to do an ATC which is the size of a playing card. I used my acrylic paints, inktense pencils, iridescant paints and some ink for this one. I found it a bit of a challenge to paint that small but I quite like the result it's something different from what I'm used to doing and I'd like to do more ATC's.

I'd like to have a pack of cards like this! I find the ACEO size very small to paint but yours is really lovely :)

That's a neat idea. I see someone collecting a whole set of cards from different artists! I should do one that looks like a playing card too!

Nicola, thank you so much for your really lovely comment, it made me so happy! I've been missing visiting your blog too and my goodness youve been busy! Your new work is wonderful. Love the queen of hearts, the colours are so vibrant. And your new pendants look absolutely gorgeous. I'll be visiting your etsy shop as soon as you open it, for sure :-)

Gorgeous ATC, Nicola! Your Queen of Hearts is delightful! Diane

Hi !! Copics are a type of marker that has alcohol ink which allows you to layer the colors without tearing up the paper. They are great but there is a bit of a learning curve.

Beth said...

Wonderful queen of hearts! She reminds me of snow white.

Hermine said...

Looks great!

Sorry if you get this twice - love your work here - the playing card is so vibrant, so complete (so much to see) and so tiny! I love it and the piece above it - the eyelashes are my favorite part. Happy week, Kristin :)
