Antique Playing Card

This is my entry for the Mixed Media Monday challenge "Playing Cards". I am slowly trying to create a fabric journal and this is a page that will be added to it someday. I took an image of an antique playing card and printed it onto opaque"printer" fabric. "Jacquard" makes a whole array of (paper- backed) fabric for your printer! I then layered it onto the background fabric (with spray adhesive) allowing the print and color to show through. Finally I added cut metallic pieces as decorative trim.
