I am loving all the new cards. The ones from Ambriel, just wonderful! And the ones from MicheleJ2, also wonderful! :ok

Michele, I take it you posted two versions of the 9 of cups and the Wheel, because you don't know yet which you will enter? I like all of them, but I have to say, I think I prefer the 9 of cups 1 to the second. The Wheel, I like them both!

Ok, well, I will finally post my 6 of Cups. I had this one ready two weeks ago, but I thought maybe it was better coloured. I coloured it in with pencil, but I am not convinced. So I will go with the black&white version:

Ok, descriptions:

9 of cups:
Drawing made with pencil and inked later. Meaning: nostalgia, childhood, playfulness, memories, feeling carefree.


6 of Swords:
Drawing made with pastel. Meaning: travel, journey, getting over a rough time, moving from turbulence to calm (from the rough, stormy sea to the peaceful light).

6 of Wands:
Drawing made with pastel. Meaning: victory, pride, achieving success

6 of Pentacles:
Photograph of artwork made with bamboo on cloth. Meaning: giving/receiving, offering/taking of advice, information, help, support, material means. The woman gives, the man receives what he needs.

Temperance:
Photograph of artwork made with bamboo on cloth. Meaning: moderation, balance, harmony, bringing together opposites, finding middle ground.


Skad1, for the bio, please use the one from previous years:

Artist Bio: truelighth is Saskia Jansen. I’ve been addicted to tarot since 1996. I mostly collect decks, but I also do readings (only with the Rider Waite). I was born and raised and still live in the Netherlands

Card Descriptions
This year my cards are all Thoth-inspired:
 
Tower
The Tower is a card of transformation, brought about by destroying the old to build the new.  The image of the Crowley-Harris –Thoth is transforming into the photo of a real Tower. The “all seeing eye” stepping out of the card into the real world as a manifestation of cosmic energy.
 
Queen of Wands
I started with Maria Leszczynska Queen Consort of France, Reading the Bible; portrait by Jean-Marc Nattier. As all monarchs of France have been required by law to be male, there has never been a queen or empress regnant of France. A queen consort acted as regent for her husband or children. Maria Leszczynska was a great lover of music and painting and the patron of many artists, she also started a correspondence with Voltaire, for whom she secured a pension. She is the Queen of the Thrones of Flame, so I added a volcanic image, with its red lava flow and the element symbol for fire.  Her sign is Aries. She has a wand crowned with a pinecone, which is the weapon of the Maenads, which were followers of Dyonisus. The wand I took from the Crowley-Harris-Thoth, it resembles a phallus and is a symbol for satisfied lust.
 
Queen of Cups
This card is based on Elisabeth Christine Queen of Prussia; portrait by Antoine Pesne. Elisabeth Christine was interested in literature, she also wrote books herself, about morals, in French, and introduced silk cultivation to Prussia. She is the Queen of the Thrones of Water, so I changed the colors of the original portrait, modified the background to look like an underwater landscape and added an element symbol for water. Her sign is Cancer. The ibis is the symbol of Thoth, and thus a symbol of the intellect. The lotus in her right hand represents not only water but also emotions. Together the two symbolize the emotions overriding the intellect.
 
Queen of Swords
Marie Antoinette, the later queen of France, as a child; portrait by Martin van Meytens. She is the Queen of the Thrones of Air, so I made the background a bit more airy and added the appropriate element symbol.  Her sign is Libra. I added the sword in her left hand which signifies analysis and the severed bearded head (which I took from the Crowley-Harris-Thoth), that  represents old ways of thinking.
 
Queen of Discs
I borrowed Goya’s Maria Luisa of Spain the Queen of Etruria, for my Queen of the Thrones of Earth. Her zodiacal attribution is the Sun in Capricorn. I changed the background colors, added the ivy and a few symbols. In Thoth-geometrics the hexagram is the symbol of the sun, while the cube represents earth, thus the hexagram inside the cube symbolizes the fertility of the Earth as engendered by the Sun.

The pope changed while I was working on this card so I had to change it to match the times! 


 “Hierophant” literally means “the one who teaches the holy things.  The card stands for religion and traditional education.  The pope means seek guidance, to follow positive advice endorsed, to do the right thing, to have faith, to keep on the right side of God, to be a positive role model, to be disciplined in your approach to matters and to clear off negative karma.

Pope Francis (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) (3/13/2013 -) the 266th pope.  Also included are Benedict XVI (Joseph Alois Ratzinger) 2005-2013; Bd. John Paul II (Karol Józef Wojtyła) (1978-2005); Servant of God John Paul I (Albino Luciani) (1978-1978); Ven. Pius XII (Eugenio Pacelli) (1939-1958), Saint Peter (33-67).  Background is the Sala Regia, Vatican City.  


How many know who the SECOND Pope was?  Everyone knows Peter was the first, but did you know that Saint Linus was the second?  Charlie Brown would be so proud.

The deck is going to be soooo awesome this year. The cards are just wonderful. All of them. I can't wait!

Here is the cover card. Hope it's received with love and light. The hummingbird was a frequent visitor to my kitchen window last year and the pink rose bloomed in my garden, which was much to my delight. My roses did well despite all the gloomy weather this year. Always both a sign that beauty and creativity will always prevail and endure. Just like our Tarot Collector deck seems to be doing.

Will next year be our 5th year?

I know this is so wrong of me, but I was inspired to do another 2 of cups. So...not sure which I should choose for the deck. Any thoughts?

The description for this card:

Two of Cups. Two Cups of Tea. Peering into the eyes of the soul, search for duality and the comfort of the other. When two people sit for a cup of tea, it should be said they are looking into each other hearts to share experiences and seek answers to their problems.

My last card is ready. Here is the Hermit (plus write-up):

Drawing made with pastel. Meaning: Introspection. A path leads from the darkness towards the light. This is the journey the Hermit follows in solitude, to reach the light, to truth and inner knowledge.

Moon.

I hope it isn't too dark. I mean in terms of colors. (The mood can never be too dark for for a tarot card :cool:)

Those with collaborative deck experience: do you think one will still be able to see something on the printed card?

Not posted the final version to skad1 yet, so still open for critical remarks.

One way to find out is to print the card out yourself. I did that with my 6 of Swords, to see if it would not be too dark (with the colours). It actually was a bit, so I made it a bit lighter for the print version and kept the web version the same.

LWB entries:

Justice:
The background shows a medieval text of canon law, exploring the idea how canon law and the perception of justice may be connected. I have included the kanji and hiragana signs for Justice for a transcultural approach.

8 of Swords:
Entrapment, sometimes of one’s own making. All the tools are there within reach. It is a matter of courage as well as just figuring it out; this is where the symbolism of “taking your heart in your hands” is embodied here.

8 of Coins
Skill, patience, and craftsmanship. Sometimes this looks like a very mundane card, full of nitty-gritty work, but there is so much joy in excelling at what you do and in shaping your workpiece.

8 of Wands
Fast fire … these are the words that always come to me in connection with the 8 of Wands. It is a strong rush of passion or inspiration, fast communication or events unfolding like a force of nature. With all of these lies a danger to burn what should not be burned, or burn out too quickly. Card is a photograph of matches on scrapbook paper tweaked with Paint Sho Pro.

8 of Cups
A moody card – turning away from something, not out of rational thought, but emotions. Like the moon cycles, this might just have been a matter of timing. The future lies uncharted as of yet, you might even have turned your back to something beautiful. The colibri shows that there is that erratic piece of memory that will always fly after you.

I think it's great.

If a card is too dark I have been known to lighten them a bit.  I had to last year on three cards because you just couldn't see the detail.  The printer and I talked over lightening up all the cards when they were printed (easiest change), but the other cards were ok.  I try not to do anything more than I have to, but sometimes its necessary.  It may be just the differences in monitors.  I learned that it is best to have the printer do a test run, that way I can see exactly what the cards look like, and sometimes it is enough different.

I finished the 7 of Swords:

7 of Swords:

Drawing made with pencil and inked later. Meaning: the dog is running off with a chicken leg stolen from the dinner table: trickiness, deceiving, impulsive action, cleverness, sneaking off, taking the easy way out.

Here is my card and descriptions I owe you. I only hope I am doing it correctly.

My Description:

The Emperor is a rule maker and regulator. He’s organized, systematic, commanding -- the epitome of the “establishment”. He makes and applies policies and guidelines and sets standards of behaviors for everyone to follow. The Emperor is likely to abandon the rights of the private citizen for the “greater good” of the community.

J. Edgar Hoover held the position of Director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972 through the administration of six U. S. Presidents. Several Presidents, Congressmen, and Senators wished to fire Hoover, but declined to do so when they discovered the amount of private and sensitive information Hoover amassed about them, making him, in essence, more powerful than the Presidents and Congress of the United States.

As director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover had rabid anti-Communist and anti-subversive views and used unconventional tactics to monitor related activity, from infiltration, burglaries, illegal wiretaps, and planted evidence. Despite his unorthodox and even unethical methods, Hoover’s ability for public relations catapulted the FBI into a powerful organization that today has grown into a formidable worldwide and overall respected agency.


SORRY - THE PICTURE WOULDN'T GO THROUGH -- TOO BIG! I WILL HAVE TO FIND ANOTHER WAY!

thanks, trueligth :hp

And thanks gregory and skad1 for encouraging me to leave the moon as it is. I just mailed the hi-res versions of all my cards to skad1.

Here is some bio and card description:

Bio: I am located in Berlin, Germany, and I am still a newbee to tarot. It’s my second contribution to a collaborative deck.
Creation of the Moon: The Background shows a tenement building located by a canal that used to have the Berlin wall on the other shore. So the water from the traditional moon is there, albeit invisible. The overlay collage was done using Paint Shop.
Meaning of the Moon: Creepy things raising from your unconscious while you lie asleep at night.
Creation of the Threes: All elements on the cards except the suit symbols were drawn by hand with the help of Corel Draw from several photos. Leaves and other elements that occur frequently have been cloned. I took the suit symbols from the Conver Marseille and changed the colors.
Meaning of the Three of Swords (spring): pain, heartbreak, sorrow that results from knowledge, strong emotions in general, chance of healing
Meaning of the Three of Batons (summer): power of will, efforts that are paying off
Meaning of the Three of Cups (autumn): participating in the fullness of nature and life in general, harvest, satisfaction
Meaning of the Three of Coins (winter): work, long term investment, development
