Paperwhimsy Deck of 52 cards!

This was a project I hosted with my PW group. 27 artists each created 2 playing cards using PW images. They made 27 copies and embellished them for the other players. They are all different images except for 2 cards which used the same image in a completly different way. I put the decks together and decorated metal boxes to hold the decks.
I wanted to share these beauties because the artists all did such meticulous and original cards! I did submit them to a publication for consideration and 10 months later they came back(thank you but no.)
So I am publishing them for you to see on my blog!!!!!Be sure and click on the photos for a really close look!
Hearts Clubs

Spades

Wow! I think they are fabulous. What a great project. I'm so surprised that the publication didn't want to run with them. I'm shaking my head!

Lovely work by all artists involved. Thank you for publishing this on your blog for all of us to enjoy.
