Hello CE  friends! Welcome back to the blog. It’s time for the third part of the mini-series. Some of you might have noticed I’ve been on a bright colors kick here lately. Just because I love bright colors, that’s not to say that you can’t go in a totally different direction though. You could even do a checkered background. I’d love to see what you would do with the decks of cards. If you do, make sure to share them in the CE FB fan page group. Without further ado, let the journey end! Let’s go home, shall we?!

Product List
**Let’s get our topsy tipsy on, shall we?!**
1. You’ll want to begin by laying down a nice layer of white gesso over the entire surface
*Hint: I have a 10×10 canvas
2. While that dries, alter your chipboard pieces and casting using black gesso
*Hint: Don’t gesso the card set
3. After the white gesso is completely dry, splatter some watered-down black gesso on the canvas
4. Next, you use some acrylic paint to color the deck of cards
*Hint: I used Impasto paints
5. Now use some texture paste of your choice and cover the rabbit and teapot
*Hint: This gives the pieces some extra interest separating them from other pieces
6. While those dry, assemble your shaker
7. Dry brush the edges of your card set and canvas with black gesso
8. Then using a coordinating Sparks paint dry brush the card set giving it some sparkle and flair
9. Use gold wax to highlight the rabbit and teapot. With the same wax frame the canvas
10. Assembly time! Begin with the card set, adhere them as if you were holding them in your hand
11. Adhere one piece at a time thoughtfully to not have any excess glue smooshing
12. For finishing touches add some sequins
13. Finally, brush on some gold wax to your casting and adhere it to the card set
*Hint: I placed mine to match the direction of the diamonds on the cards
