Day 2 - Dark Goddess ATC

I recently joined the Dark Goddess ATC swap over on Swap-Bot and that is what I created today.  I like my ATC's to be simple and clean.  I started out by painting the background a mix of pink, purple, and white.  I then took photocopy of KaliMa and adhered it to the ATC.  I used my heat gun to puff up the paint and give it some texture.

I then added some white with a stencil. It's actually just a piece of window screen and I used a sponge brush to dab on the paint.  I then used the heat gun to puff it up again.  Afterwards I added some brads (one on her hand and one on his crown), a button, purple ink on the edges and on the white paint.  I finished it off by edging it slightly with black ink.

I hope my swap partner likes my creation.  I'm currently very attracted to Mother Kali and her story with Shiva. Many people would be afraid to worship a Goddess who is holding a decapitated head, but when you study all the symbolism and meanings you can't help but fall in love with her and her divine spirit. Jai jai Kali Ma!!



  1. Hello! Thanks for stopping by my corner of the web. ^_^

    I have fascination with KaliMa as well. I've found, like you, that many people are wary of a goddess holding a severed head, wearing a necklace of skulls. I find her comforting and she makes me feel safe. ^-^
    I'm sure your swap partner will love the card they get from you! It's gorgeous.

    1. Exactly!! She makes me feel so safe and secure. And empowered. I feel whole with her, because of her :D
      Thank you!

    O I like her very much, I think your swap partner will be very pleased.

  3. I like Kali as well. Her image was the first I pulled from my Goddess deck. Your card is beautiful!

    1. Yes, I resonate with her very much. I can't help but feel as if I'm expanding into that energy. Thank you!
