How did I not notice this when you first uploaded it? I like the idea/concept of using a card as a base for a piece. I may give it ago one of these days. The bird fellow seems to be very well placed and balanced and I love the color choices in this piece. The back ground circle is a nice touch.

how do get the acrylic to stay on the card? to take sand paper to it first? (I'm attempting to use a deck for a social commentary centered around social castes and the paint won't stay :Y )

You could sand it some but the ink comes off easily. I start off by using Golden acrylic matte medium. This stuff can used as a translucent ground and has a tooth to it when dry. Keep in mind it will take several layers and the medium must be very dry before new layers are added (it's a good idea to let it sit a day between layers). After the layers of the ground have been applied, the surface can be drawn and painted. Also keep in mind, if the drawing tool is too sharp, it will gouge and cut into the translucent ground.
So, several layers of ground and then several thin layers of paint (a glaze) are applied.
Hope this helps!
