Altered Playing Cards Week 4

Altered playing card challenge week 4.  Claudine heads the challenge and we are into week four.  With 52 small pieces of art to create it will not take long to catch up or just start with this week.  This is really a "no excuses" challenge as the canvas size is so small.

"Small homes grow tight families" is a collage with hand drawn elements.  The cloud is the waste paper from my "2 nuage" stamp that Claudine used in the challenge.  I decided just to add type with my sun by painting watercolor on an old book page.  A PITT XS pen is used for added doodles.

"Coffee is always a good idea" uses Vera Lane Studio's "City Girl" with two of the four buildings included in the set.  After a day of shopping who doesn't want to duck into a little cafĂ© for a cup of joe.
