My partner in the NCIS swap was also in the tarot card swap, which I had not been able to join. So I figured that it was the perfect excuse to make some cards Cheesy

Finding the correct screen captures turned out to be the most difficult part of the whole process, but I think they turned out pretty well. Let me know if you can think of better ones or ones for the cards I did not make. I think I want to make a set for myself now - except they took FOREVER so I doubt that will ever happen!

I altered giant playing cards (about 3"x5"). Here's what I did with the box.


As luck would have it, I actually managed to find a tarot card quote from NCIS!


And now the cards.

0 - The Fool
Like there was anyone else that could be this card?!


The backs of each of the cards are made with matching paper and have 'NCIS tarot' stamped on them.


I - The magician
I was really unsure about this card. Ducky's not really the saving lives type of Doctor, but I think that he's still pretty magical. Plus, I really like the picture  Cheesy Sadly the camera flash made some of the detail disappear.


III - The Empress
I didn't want to make Jenny the Empress, but my sister insisted that it was meant to be her card. And I guess it makes sense since Gibbs was the Emperor.


IV - The Emperor
The Boss man. I like that this card has somewhat of a Patriotic feel to it.


VI - The Lovers
I hadn't planned on making this card because while there are many relationships on the show, there aren't couples in the main cast. I didn't want to do future couples or people that were former relationships. None of them seemed to fit... and then I remembered! I love Dinozzo  Cheesy


VII - The Chariot
The NCIS van!


IX - The Hermit Gibbs in his basement. It was so hard to get a photo of Gibbs and his boat!
XV - The Devil I love Fornell but he IS FBI Cheesy


XI - Strength
McGee carrying Kate (with his eyes closed so that she didn't think he was trying to look up her skirt!). I think the episode was See No Evil (2x01). An awesome episode.


XIII - Death
I wasn't going to make this card because I didn't think it would be very tasteful having one of Ducky's dead bodies on a card. Then I remembered a drawing a certain Italian Special Agent had once done...


Queen of Wands
I admit that this one doesn't fit as well as the others. But I needed a Ziva card!


and saving the best till last....
The Queen of Cups
Abs and her Cafpow~!

Don't know much about tarot cards, but I adore NCIS, and based on the names of the cards, and what I know your choices could have been, I think you picked excellent pictures/characters.  I think the Ziva for Queen of Wands is a good one, too, because she is a master of weapons and a wand could be considered a weapon if you used it to assault or defend with.

That's how I justified the Ziva card!

And thankyou, a great compliment from a fellow NCIS fan Cheesy
