Hi! I'm Tanya Bond - the artist behind Tanya's Charming Creatures. For the past 6 months I have been working on a Duality Deck - my personal take on an Oracle deck that will have my images on the cards and the booklet of meanings. The main purpose of this Deck is to bring peace into your thoughts and feelings when it comes to areas of your life that you are currently not so happy about. It can also be used as a message for the day where the meanings of the cards could suggest what to focus on throughout the day. And as with most oracle decks the magic is not in the cards, but in you picking the right card for your situation. For art lovers this deck would make a nice collection of mini-prints if oracle decks are not your thing.
What is it and why is it called Duality Deck?
What it will look like:
Example above is what I have in mind for the design. I want them to be a reasonably big size - about 3.5 x 5.5 inches, big enough to enjoy the artwork, yet still manageable when it comes to shuffling.There will be 26 cards in total.
#1 Please note that no matter what reward level, I'm happy to do a sample one card reading for anyone who would request it. Once you try it out you will have a pretty good idea of what this Duality Deck is all about. You can request a sample reading by sending me a message on my facebook page
#2 The basic reward of one deck is an early bird type of reward with an exclusive to kickstarter price 20% below retail value, which I wish to make available to all of the backers who help me get this project funded.
Tracking is only included in the shipping charge of the rewards over €100, if you would like tracking with other rewards please add €5 to your pledge
#3 reward level includes a 5x7 inches print of "Duality" drawing (it is the print you see below in the example - two koi under the starry sky)
#4 reward level includes a necklace with the image from the deck. You can choose the image from the deck yourself, or let it be a surprise. The pendant comes with a leather necklace that extends from approx. 17 - 18.5 inches or 43cm - 47cm
#5 reward level includes a RANDOM surprise drawing. It will be 5x7 inches and I will use coloured pencils, ink and neocolor II on craft card for it, as you see on the example below. It could be a flower, a bird, an animal whatever inspires me as I work on it. Please note this is not a commission and I won't be able to take requests.
Images from €120 level are not going to be a part of the deck, they are a kickstarter only special of 40% below what I normally sell this size for. They are however a part of the red dot series as all of them will contain at least one red dot:)
Below are examples of possible €120 reward level drawings, I will be adding them as I draw them, if you wish to claim one please let me know! Alternatively I can send you a complete surprise drawing, that you haven't seen before (you will let me know your choice in the survey that follows the end of the campaign)
PS Mr Fox, Mr Bear, Solangea, Calliope, Miss Owl, Mr Whale, Mr Tiger, The Spell, Tanith, Mr Panda, the Weight of the World, Medicine Sloth and La Tristesse have now been claimed - thank you so much!
Please note if you don't pick an existing drawing you will get a surprise one instead!
#6 reward level includes an original drawing from the deck, coloured pencils on kraft card, approx. 6 by 8.5 inches (A5). Please make sure to contact me for the up-to-date list of the available originals and let me know which one you would like to receive before you pledge for this level.
Please note that "Surrender", "Present", "Magic", "Solitude" and "Mirror" have now been spoken for. The other originals below are available
I've just finished one more original for this reward level, the final card - "Surrender"
What payment methods you can use to take part in the funding of Duality Deck:
Kickstarter accepts most credit cards and some debit cards,
However, as we are getting closer to the funding goal of €4k a small note to people who would love to take part in the campaign but DO NOT HAVE CREDIT CARDS. Once the official campaign reaches the goal I will be able to accept paypal, bank transfer (if you are in Europe), and cash in the post (Ireland only). You can claim any reward level you wish just like you would have done using the kickstarter site and just like all the backers your name would be put into a raffle hat for the chance to win one of three prizes.
PS We are now FUNDED - so if you wanted to pledge without credit card please send me a message on my page - https://www.facebook.com/TanyasCharmingCreatures

Risks and challenges
As with every project some delays might be expected when dealing with printing companies, however I will do everything that's within my power to deliver the finished product to you according to the planned schedule - I intend to post them out in October if not earlierLearn about accountability on Kickstarter
