House of Hartsoe Presents: THE TEMPTRESS TAROT

WHY AM I DOING THIS?

I decided to do this deck because I have always had a very keen interest in mystical, magical, and metaphysical ideas. I believe that the world is what we make of it and there is great power in our thoughts and beliefs. I plan to do more decks and expand my knowledge and comprehension of each individual card of the Tarot and Oracle. For this deck I decided I really wanted to do something intimate. Faces are one of the most emotion provoking and interesting things that we connect with as humans. I like many of the other decks I have seen but I wanted to do something that was my interpretation of the cards. I am going basically with the Rider-Waite meanings. As a writer I become attached to images and ideas so I am trying to make each character exude and reflect what it should. I want the deck to be fully capable of giving a very powerful reading for yourself or others. I appreciate anyone that helps me in my journey. I have written 3 books but this is my first attempt at a Card Deck and I am beyond excited to share this with the world. I can feel myself expanding as an artist and growing into what I am happy to say is better everyday. I am completely committed to bringing this deck to life and meeting new people through Kickstarter that will enjoy the things I am creating. 

Because this is my first deck and I want to be able to see and approve each DECK. I will be hand wrapping them to ship. The size is 3.5" by 5.5" for both decks. 

THE FULL DECK IS LIMITED TO 100 Printed on 167 lb Card stock

THE MAJORS ONLY DECK IS LIMITED TO 50

Here I am with some of the cards :)

DESCRIPTION

Limited edition first run CONFLICT DECK for emotional stability and positive energy building. Battle through dark times with this deck. The main purpose of this Deck is to bring peaceful thoughts and raise question to any negative feelings you are currently experiencing. It can also be used as a message guide for the day to day obstacles. My art has helped me get through the darkest moments in my life and I feel blessed the universe gave me a gift to share with everyone I know. My pain has been filtered into this wonderful ability to draw, paint and write. If I don't use it and "gift" it to others, then there is no reason for me to exist. Always remember as with most oracle decks the magic is not with the cards, but in your own spirit. CONFLICT cards are here to evoke and evolve your own emotions at a sub-conscious quantum level. The CONFLICT deck will shake some of your most rooted foundations and allow you to see life, not as it is, but as you will it to be. For art lovers this deck would make a nice collection of mini-prints if you are not into oracle reading.

Risks and challenges

The project is almost complete. I will be posting the remaining artwork during the campaign. I have already submitted my major arcana for a test run print and I can't wait to get a test of the full deck. I plan to be shipping in April. It depends on the timing of the printer. I will have these decks to you all ASAP!
