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!

Photos as backgrounds!

I took a photo of the top of a bureau that I decoupaged, made a 5"7" copy and cut it up for Moo cards! Here are some after adding images!

Beeswax background!

Using an encaustic iron for wax, I blended this paper with beeswax and oil pastels and then cut the circle out. Underneath I glued a PW image and added the butterfly over the edge!
