Just updating this thread. The project's theme has veered slightly away from its original "engraved" look. The new artworks will still have engraved touches but will also be inspired by illuminated manusctipts, and maybe some other stuff I find interesting along the way.
This is still a work-in-progress, and I'm still trying to make the text pop out more - especially for the red text. I wanted cards which are also playable, so in lieu of card inserts, I included playing card indices instead. I might just put the card title on a scroll, if I can't find a way to make it pop out even more. the numbers on the upper right and lower left correspond to the card's Lenormand number.
I'm thinking of either including the unused cards as playing cards or make new cards as an expansion of the 36 original ones, or I dunno yet...
Would love to hear/read your feedback regarding the project.
