"Hänsel und Gretel" - 2 ATCs


As there were still two images on my copy from the "Oblatenbildchen" left (and some playing cards too), I decided that I wanted to try out my new verdigris patina set and combine this with the altering technique from the "Let's tell off for play"-leporello.

This time I put the crumpled paper tissue layer on top, also covering the images of the two children. And I love, how some parts of the playing cards still are visible, adding colour and detail to the whole in some spots without being too distinct.

I also highlighted the creases by slightly drybrushing them with gold acrylic colour.



Here some more close-ups, which I hope you will enjoy as much as I do:




As these two ATCs are made of recycled playing cards, which I reused that way and reduced in size a litte (*gg), I enter the Smudger Challenge Blog, where they ask for "Reduce Reuse Recycle", with this project.
