Brilliant idea and very nice implementation!

If there is a list of people wanting a copy, please put me on it. Very impressive!

I can wait. But I do want to be sure of getting one
Yes, exactly! = )

Yes, and me. This is an extraordinary concept and, I think, will take one more deeply into intuitive reading. I suspect that they won't be easy to read but that, with practice, readings will go deeper than with many other decks. Wow!!

Cool idea, and quite an interesting design challenge!

How did the laminating test go? (I'm as confused as your friend about how this would work...). Do the cards really need laminating...is the surface fragile?

Can't wait to see more!

How else could you preserve them - what else is that transparent and the ink would still stay on - I'm not aware of ANYTHING so indelible that you can't get it off acetate in the end.... (I have even in desperation cleaned indelible inks off acetates when we had no sheets left for an OHP presentation.... and I'd hate to try and draw a deck with so-called indelibles with no possible chance of altering a card a bit....)

Oh, yes, if I didn't say it before....put me in line as well!

Just an idea....but as soon as you get a full deck made...do you think you could do a reading on any topic you pick....and post it, so we can have a chance to work with this wonderful deck asap?

2 new cards


Such a response! Thank you everyone!

Laminating experiment went very well today. The cards are only a little flimsy, and if I can find slightly thicker acetate, they'll be perfect. They also give a lovely 3D effect when you start layering them, and it makes a difference to the image which order they are layered in. There are almost infinite possibilities!

Todays cards are the fool and the Magician. i might fiddle with the rose on the Fool so that it lines up better with the dragons on the Magician, but here they are as they stand for now...

Plus I have included a couple of combos, including everycard completed so far combined! I only ever intended up to four to be read at once, but it's quite fun.

Blessings,

Em xx

moved the rose


Thanks russian soul!

Just a quick note: I've moved the rose to correct the problem.

You are Brilliant!
