Queen of Diamonds

I made the Queen for an altered playing card swap for a swap on CCSwaps, a wonderfully creative group of artists who regularly participate in swaps. The challenge was to alter a playing card (or in my case two). I used a Paula Best set of unmounted stamps to create this funky figure from two oversized playing cards. After stamping, I used Sharpies and other pens which would work on a slick surface to add the color highlight. The parts were cut out and glued together. I really enjoyed making this, especially since I have had the stamps for quite awhile and had never used them!
