Tarot ATC and Tags

I'm very proud to be winner of the Captured Memories Challenge, and to have the opportunity to be spotlighted as September Top talent.

I had to decide what kind of work, I would make, and I didn't know. Then my husband said, when you made The Tower tarot card as an ATC card, you said that once you might make some of the other cards. Maybe this is now? I thougt about it a little while, and then I picked 4 cards from the Major Arcana, and made them my way ;-)

They looked different, so I made them "look alike" by decoration.

The oldest known Tarot Cards are from the 15th century, and a couple of days after I had made the ATC cards, I thought what would tarot cards look like nowadays. And it came to me Tarot Tags (sounds cool!) and I made these 4:

  1. Hello Susan, I thoroughly enjoyed reading your interview over at OCC, particularly as you would love to go back in time to visit Leonardo and his wonderful steampunk creations! Your ATCs and Tarot tags are amazing, I really love your use of colour and your very clever interpretations! Hugs, Anne x

  4. Oh, congrats for being spotlighted as the top talent, you sure deserve this! I enjoy visiting your blog and looking at your artwork. This is no exception, the cards are just stunning! Love all of them, and te tags too, of course. And I love how you made the background of the cards. The skeleton is my favorite, though. I'm a sucker for everything bony :-) Very well done. To alter playing cards is on my long to do list too, but up to now I don't have no dazzling idea ... Suzanne x

  5. Completely fantastic ATCs and tags - they really look amazing, Susan. Stunning use of colour and all the images look wonderful. It was so lovely to read a bit more about you - as you know, I've been a fan for a long time! I certainly envy you that time on the island. The light must have been amazing. Congratulations on being our Top Talent, and thank you for your beautiful creations.

  7. Love your tarot cards, Susan!

    They are such a thoughtful and artistic project! Tarot cards have always been fascinating to me too but I never had the idea of doing a personal interpretation. Yours is absolutely fantastic! So much food for thought! Thank you!
