No. 11 is the last of this series of playing cards. I enjoyed creating these so much I may do a series of 52 using a whole deck of cards. I could then make a box to house them. I will have to think about this as incorporating the twelve royal cards might prove to be quite challenging.

The signature at the bottom is from a check written in 1872. Can you imagine a document you signed being used in 100 or more years? It would never have come into my imagination until I used it myself in this piece. So maybe something I have written, a letter for instance, will surface years to come. I will be long gone by then. :-)

I started working vertically on this card as I wanted to use the tree. The piece ended up with a combination of vertical and horizontal ephemera. I like that the orange highlighting tape had a flaw…see by the spade. I like how the red grounds the composition. Yesterday I was asked about which highlighting tape I recommend. So I put the link from Amazon in yesterday’s comments on the one I purchased. I am sure there are many but that is the one I chose and lucked out liking it.
