This project will only be funded if it reaches its goal by Mon, July 30 2018 3:55 PM UTC +00:00.
Masquerade: Mardi Gras Edition is the latest creation in BrainVessel's Artist Series Playing Cards featuring the artwork of International Canadian Artist Denyse Klette. In our previous kickstarter, Masquerade Playing Cards where we created the black and white Masquerade themed deck, we had a stretch goal for the colorized Mardi Gras version of the deck. Unfortunately we did not reach that stretch goal. However we thought the Mardi Gras deck was so special it deserves to be made into its own Kickstarter and we hope you think so to. These will be printed by the USPCC with the same quality and attention to detail as our previous decks.
If you would like to learn more about Denyse Klette and the previous Masquerade: Black Box Edition, you can watch the Kickstarter video below.
We are also making available the Masquerade: Black Box Edition from the previous Kickstarter campaign. These cards are in black and white and feature a black tuck box with black and silver foil.
The four Pip Enamel Pins are a limited run of 250 sets and each will be individually numbered.
The following are all the add-ons you can add to your pledge by increasing your pledge amount by the amount listed under your location, United States, Canada, or International (rest of the world).
Today Denyse’s paintings are featured prominently in hotels, private collections around the world and represented in galleries internationally. She became an approved sculptor for licensed Disney characters, has illustrated several children’s books and and created work for licensing for home decor products and beachwear. Denyse co-created Belly Button Buddies; which grew from an award-winning book to a children’s TV show airing in Canada and the UK. Denyse signed a worldwide contract with St Martin’s Press for a series of whimsical adult colouring books.
Denyse has released her first series of bronze sculptures of her whimsical paintings which has had huge success with her collectors.
January of 2014, Brain Vessel’s first playing card campaign, the Seven Seas Playing Cards ended raising over 67k. Through that success we were able to grow as a company, expanding our office to include a shipping station and built our online store, bvcargo.com. We have also grown as a branding and design company, using our unique skill set to re-brand and guide many local business in our area.
With the Artist Series we want to use our history and knowledge of Kickstarter and playing card production to bring the unique art from artists we’ve showcased in our gallery to a wider audience through playing cards. The first artist in our Artist Series and out lastest playing card release was Jason Kreiger with the Bones Playing Cards. We've wrapped up fuffillment on that project in December. Feel free to check out the comments section of that campaign to see what people thought of the deck!
Risks and challenges
There is always the chance for production delays concerning a project such as this, but we've taken precautions to minimize that outcome. We've learned a lot from our previous playing card campaigns, and we are very familiar with the process. We always make sure to instill quality in our products and when we do something we make sure to do it right.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
