Altered Playing Cards

I recently discovered Stephanie Ackerman’s blog – I have no idea why I haven’t found her amazing work before – I love her style!

I immediately signed up for her 52 Card Pick Up class and over the next few weeks will share a few of the altered playing cards I made in the first module – it was a lot of fun!  Below the pictures is a list of items I supplies I used.
