Inspiration cards swap (the making of)

2 weeks ago, I mentioned an inspiration card swap in my gratitude post. And yesterday, I finally shipped my self-made cards to Jess, who have organized this swap. It will take some time for her to make new decks and ship them back to every artist who have joined, but for now – I can show you the making of my own cards:

The first layer. As you can see, it was our task to use playing cards and paint them over.
Layer 2 drying. After that I was painting the backside. As finishing touch I added more colors on the front:
And a close-up:
Every week I will put some of the cards online, not all of them at the same time to keep it a surprise for those who have joined the swap. When everyone have their new deck, you can watch all my cards at my Tumblr blog.

    This is so weird. I actually planned to do the exact same thing tonight, only I forgot about it.

    Yours were really nice and inspiring!
