I'm not much into playing cards but I came across a small heart stamp I made last year and suddenly had the urge to make a whole deck!
All the numbered cards are done. Now I'm working on the Ace, Jack, Queen, King and Joker.
If the prototype deck turnes out good I may make a limited edition of perhaps 10 packs and put them up on ebay. Who knows, someone out there might consider them a "must have" item!
If you want to learn more about the history of playing cards and see some wonderful custom designs take a look at:
Just about everything you ever wanted to know about playing cards is on this site.
Thanks for stopping by my studio blog: The Inky Spinnery.
I'm an eraser carver. I like to turn common everyday erasers into fine rubber art stamps. When I'm not doing that I'm usually spinning or knitting. So The Inky Spinnery seemed like a good name.
This is my first venture into blogging. I don't have the journaling bug in me at all! I write and re-write and never feel satisfied with what I've put down. But since I love to read other artists blogs and see what they are working on, and since eraser carving is such an obscure form of art I thought that maybe other people would be interested in what I do.
Now I need to figure out how to upload some pictures!
