I loved the images online, but the deck didn't feel very magical to me. I did a reading with it, and long story short, I felt like the deck told me that I needed to keep working to try to connect with it. So I tried trimming! I felt like the images got lost in those big black borders and I didn't like the font. Now they pop just as brightly as they did for me online.
Vee these are so amazing you did a beautiful job. Even at this distance I can see how the artwork is popping and how vibrant each card is now. Isn't it a joy to revive a wilting deck!

Forgot to mention: in another thread called "Steele Wizard" I posted up a few scans of that deck which I turned into a pocket sized version--no borders at all! It was intensely challenging to trim, these cards are thick as LPs! but the results where phenomenal, really, I can't say enough about it! If anyone wants to check them out.....please I would love to know your opinion.

Greenwood


Hey guys, I forgot to do pre and posts for my Greenwood- so I used the post trimming pics to match the ones that are listed on aeclectic at http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/greenwood/

It will take 2 posts to upload, this is 1/2- the major arcana.

Let me know what y'all think

I hope the candy has helped to improve your mood again!

The next time you accidentally hit "backspace," please hit Ctrl + Z immediately afterwards. That should bring everything back. That is, if I understood right what happened. (Note: This probably works differently on a Mac.)

Indeed Penthasilia you are quite the ruthless warrior indeed lol! It sure took balls to do that to your Greenwood! I'll admit I did inhale in horror at the notion but I totally won over after seeing the great job you did and the wonderful effect. They are beautiful though! And the celestial tarot took a turn for the better too....a source of never ending wonder, this trimming.
I also posted a "pocket edition" of Shadow and Light tarot which turned out phenomenal but it was in another thread and I don't know where it is now--lost in space!
And does anyone own the Stone tarot? that was my first borderectomy--ah, how I remember it well...
