Jacks and their lady friends


Another 'Journal 52',  page to share with you which I have already posted on J52 .
 The prompt for Week 15  was 'Cards'.
I had a very ink  sprayed mop up page with  a bit of glass bead stenciling  in parts just ready to use.
We are away quite often in our caravan and  sometimes play card games   in the evenings. 
The ones I used here were rather old, frayed and tatty and we needed a new set.
They had a coat of gesso, a bit  swishing over with a green ink pad.  I stamped the Ladies on tissue  before pasting to the card and  fussy cut out a couple of my favourite birds.
All the stamps used were Tim Holtz, Stampers Anonymous.

Thank you for taking time to pop in to see me.  I  always appreciate the comments you leave.
