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!

Yay Minke!
I was going to do these this week. Now it's Friday. I don't know what happened.

ha! same here... but I figure as long as I've got two done by V-day, I'm doing alright. (I plan on making at least four)

HH,
do the cards need to be mailed out to You by the 1st ? ...or is that when You need to have them so You can mail them out to everyone else?

Shell- During another ATC swap that I was a part of, my partner was concerned about the whole vegan thing and wasn't sure what mediums were vegan and which were not so she boiled vegetables down to make colors and painted with that. It was very creative and very cool! Worse comes to worse you could always do something like that!

that sounds way cool......but with the in laws here I'll be shotr on time and this sounds like it would take me lots of time.

BUT I did manage to go out and buy some paints and some Spiderman oil pastels (yes that's right, Spiderman) so I just need to get some card.....and think of some ideas

I don't know if everyone else has it already but I don't have your address.

Message me when you're ready to send the cards and I'll give you my address.  That's my way to track from whom I'm expecting cards.

I'm just checking in to see how people are coming with this.  I haven't done any work on mine since my last post.  I'm going to finish them this weekend.

I have three done. I'm debating if I like all of them.

I'll be ready by the end of this weekend.  I hope my cards are good enough.

I've gotten six done so far... and I'm pretty pleased to find that I haven't totally lost my touch. Somehow the first two that I cranked out happened to be the best ones (so far), but they were made with specific people in mind.  :P So those will be sent to one of my old professors and James' best friend Robert, respectively... but the others are pretty good too, I think!

saaaay......will Noah be contributing to this swap, l2a??
If so, p'raps You might "encourage" him to make the creepiest/grossest/weirdest-looking creature imaginable..? and then HH might just happen to send that one my way..?  ^-^ eh eh?

I only have to do one. I'll try to get it done this weekend and send it out in the beginning of next week. HH- can you PM me your address before Monday, please? Thanks!

I did 3. I only like 2 of them. I'm not feeling super creative-I'm adding some collage elements. I really like one of them. I used some paper from a phone book.

Noah is refusing to participate. I could probably talk him into it. It would only take him about 30 seconds to whip out 6 awesome ones. He just likes being difficult.
I'll bribe him with some sweets!!! ;)

Yep.  Just 3.  Some people are being over-achievers.  :)
