ATC swap! thread - sign up here

This is a branch off of the artist trading cards thread

If you have questions about what to do and what this is about, please see the thread posted above.

This is a SIGN UP for our first round of swaps!  DUE MAY 10 in my HOT LITTLE HANDS

The themes are (you can pick 1 or more)

--People
--Animals
--Surprise (anything you want to make - it will be a surprise)

For each theme you want to do, you will send 3 cards and get 3 back. Hopefully there will be enough so I can swap you within theme but, if not, then you'll get a mix.

Cards need to be 2.5x3.5 inches. You can use any medium you wish. Please avoid heavy embellishments/thick cards (like 1/4 inch, not like cardstock). Please send stuff you are proud of. Most of us are not "artist" but the fun of doing ATCs is that we can share our unique artistic ways of doing things. Cards that are not to size will be returned to you.

Let us know in the thread which themes you are gonna make and send for. I set the due date in a little over a month.

ON THE BACK

On the back, please label the card with your name, user name (vegweb or ATCs or both), and the name of your card if you have one. You can also label it "vegweb swap" and the date so people can remember where the card was from.

If you have an account on atcsforall, let me know and i'll give you itrader feedback since you mailed to me.

MAILING
Once ready, MESSAGE ME for my address and send me your cards (see other thread for links).

Everyone: please send a LABEL with your address on it. I'll supply envelopes

US: please send postage equal to the cost to mail your envelop. 3 cards are 1 stamp, more cards might cost more. If you feel lazy or want to help with international postage, you can send me a $1 to cover your postage.

International: if you are outside the US, I'll pay to ship your stuff back.

Shortly after the deadline, I will swap around the cards and mail out the packages to people.

Quickie Reminders

-Everyone is welcome to play! Even if your work is "stick figures", if you put time and care into your work that's fine!
-If you have questions, check out the link above or send me a PM.

So who wants to play? I'll update this list as people sign up. i'm going to do a general list, no theme lists. but theme away!

gettin' nervous. Probably nothing to worry about, but I sure hope my cards didn't get lost/ruined in the mail.... just because I spent a lot of time on them and I'm really excited to share them.

....and while We're sharing the not-sent cards, I'll go ahead and show Y'all one that I made for someone not in this exchange:

I'm planning on mailing them out this coming Saturday.  All good things come to those who wait.   >:D

All of the cards are so seriously good it's insane in the membrane.

eta:  I've scanned them all and will post them the following Friday so y'all get a chance to be surprised first.

3/12:  Mail ATCs
3/18:  Post pics of ATCs

wow, You're really on that proverbial ball, HH.

...and I won't have to bother messing with that finicky scanner just to re-post/brag about the sweet cards I'll be getting.  :)

I'm going to mail them tomorrow.  It almost makes up for not mailing them at the beginning of the week.  I'm excited you get to see them soon.

eta:  And... they're mailed (Friday).

eta2:  Once you post that you've received your cards, I'll upload pics of the cards you received and who made each one.  That way, everyone will be able to see what you're talking about.

They are all amazing! except maybe mine

I don't think I mentioned it but it was l2a that got my 'dream card' in my dream, so I'm super please she got it IRL!!!

Shell, your cards are great.  I think the most amazing thing about the exchange is the variation.  pg did amazing cut-outs over paintings, Noah did line drawings, llg did beads, l2a has tiles on a card, alg painted, cw drew...  The best part is the uniqueness each person brought to the exchange.
