About

STRETCH GOAL ADDED

  •  $20,000: 3 new cards! All backers will get to vote on the new figures included in the deck 

Hi, I’m Annabelle, and welcome… to a world full of witches and goddesses, of both loving and fearsome feminine power.

This deck was born of a history nerd’s (me) insatiable quest for some witchy knowledge.

The figures I chose for the deck are witches (both real and fictional) and goddesses who come from my research into texts like the Odyssey, the Enuma Elish, the Book of Taliesin - as well as folktales, like the Arthurian legends. During the month-long art event Inktober, I retold the myths that I was reading and painted their subjects, using water and India Ink to create smokey, evocative images of powerful women. The series eventually grew to become an all-encompassing, year-long project.

It is my hope that as an oracle deck, these women will help guide other lives as much as they have mine.


This deck is not your standard card deck - I feel that when working with goddesses, attention to detail and quality is of the utmost importance.

THE CARDS

  • 30 2.75x4.75” tarot-sized cards
     
  • Luxurious 350 gsm cardstock
     
  • Metallic gold ink on both sides - all of the gold elements you see in the cards below will be printed using the beautiful specialty ink
     

THE BOX

  • Sturdy two-part box to hold the cards and the guidebook
     
  • Gold foil stamped on the front
     
  • Measures approximately 4x6"
     

THE GUIDEBOOK

  • Extensive notes on each of the witches and goddesses, including their myths and stories
     
  • Approximately 2 pages devoted to each card
     
  • Room for personal notes
     

TAKE A LOOK INSIDE:

 Not pictured, but in the deck: Hel, Lilith, Saraswati, the Lady of the Lake, and Frau Holda. I'll also be choosing one last witch or deity to paint during the Kickstarter!

 The Card Back:




My paintings are usually inspired by my personal smorgasbord of strange interests: nature, history, mythology, and the occult. Each piece has a story to tell, and is meant to pull the viewer into a mysterious world full of macabre creatures and mythical figures. I especially enjoy finding the stories of powerful women who refused to be obscured by the passing centuries.


COST BREAKDOWN
 

Turns out, shipping costs a heck of a lot! Here's a basic breakdown of where the money is going if the project is fully funded: 

Shipping can be really tricky to estimate, especially when the difference of an ounce can cause a huge difference in price. I want to make sure no one is overcharged, so I'll be charging for shipping using a Pledge Manager once I have the actual deck in hand and know the exact weight and dimension of all the packages.

Please note - this means you will be charged twice: once when the project ends, and later when I'm ready to ship your package to you! Here are some shipping estimates, so you know about what to expect:

Risks and challenges

Everything has been priced out appropriately, and the majority of the paintings and writing for the deck and guidebook have been completed. I also run a successful online shop, so I'm used to shipping orders all over the world, and I feel very confident in the manufacturer I’ve chosen for the decks.

The only "risk" I foresee are delays in the production and shipping of the deck to . Sometimes weather or Chinese holidays can slow things down and add weeks to the delivery estimate. With that in mind, I’ve added some cushion to my estimated delivery date.

If delays pop up, I promise to keep you all exhaustively informed with updates, so you know exactly what’s going on and when the decks are scheduled to arrive.
