So I have this ancient deck of playing cards that I've had since high school (1969) - heavily used, traveled and faded - used almost exclusively for cribbage, often at the beach while drinking margaritas. Oh, if the cards could talk. Anyway, this card, the King of Diamonds called to me last weekend. I used pretty much every trick I have to bring back the color, contrast and detail, along with throwing some paint and brush strokes onto the background. Lots of layers.
