|Final card back|
This was the back which, after I'd messed around with about 30 different variations and ideas (single butterflies, multiple butterflies, faery on a sky background, fire faery, and many more), my wonderful, artist friend Liz Arena, illustrator of the deck, created.
Now, creating a back for the cards wasn't in our contract, but after I sent her through a couple of my variants to look at, she took pity on me. She looked at other card backs from decks in her local esoteric store, and ones she could see on-line, and then thought about this deck we've been creating. Here is her inspiration, in her own words:
|Some of the other options|
I think Liz did a beautiful job, and that this back will compliment the vibrant images on the card fronts. Still waiting for the prototype deck to come through for proofing before sending off the final designs...
And if you want a look at what didn't make the grade, here are just a few of the card backs I created :D
