Swap Due Date - April 15th
Signup/withdraw date - April 10th
Number of Cards - 3/3

RAINBOW VIVID COLOR ATC SWAP!
This swap is for
deliciously lovely drawings, complicated collages, layered mixed media work
featuring lots of bright and vivid colors!


Each card should clearly show at least a bit of each of these colors:
Red Orange Yellow Green Blue Purple


I posted a poll (http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1032) when the site opened, asking for what my first swap should be.
Over 100 members voted, and the choice was "Color! (for the promise of a new world!) (every color of the rainbow!)"

Some Examples of GREAT cards in my collection that feature lots of bright vivid color:

Read the info in RED in this thread, it's MOST important.

If you use PRINTED (rubber stamped, magazine images, photos, copied material, please make sure it is UNDENIABLY altered by the the time you are done! Gesso and re-color, use machine stitching, etc. Cards should all look handmade, not a copy of something you printed off the internet. :)

CARD INFO:
--Swap 3 cards for 3. (one set only)
--Cards are welcome in ANY medium! Fabric, papers, paints, go for it!
(No digital ONLY or copies please). Each card needs unique hand-added-additions.
--Limit embellishments to THIN only, please.
Nothing bulky or heavy or your cards will be returned to you at your own expense.
--Put your USERNAME on the backs of your cards
(to make sure the other artist's know whose work they received and so I don't give you your OWN cards back!)
--Please put clear plastic sleeves on your cards!

PARTICIPANT INFO:
--Swap limited to 50 total participants
--Post in the Thread to sign up!
--Post in the thread with any questions.

SENDING INFO:
--US players Send a SASE (Self Addressed, STAMPED envelope) please, with 41 cents on the envie, please. I will put my return address label on your return envelope.
--ALSO, each U.S. particpant is requested to send (at least) one Loose stamp (41 cents or more) to help cover international returns. This is a swap method I employ, in order not to limit international players.
--International participants, send a self-addressed envelope (or self-stick label) and I will cover postage. An extra ATC or some lovely cancelled intl. postage stamps, ephemera or ATC blanks is welcomed, but not required. PLEASE send US postage instead if you have it!
--Put your USERNAME on your return envelope please! (on the back flap is perfect!)
--I will post your feedback upon recieving your cards.
--Also, I will plan to mail ALL cards on time, by April 18th. Period. This swap is 6 weeks out, so I won't hold it.

I liked the idea of making a triptych to be split up. It's interesting trying to make sure they work just as well alone as they do together.

I got another PM over the weekend (the 2nd or 3rd) about digital cards for this swap. My PM box has been cleared, so I thought I would restate my policy for this swap here in the thread:

Digital ONLY cards are not accepted for this swap. If you do a digital background, that is fine, but cards must have hand-added embellishments. This includes: buttons, ribbons, collaged images, hand drawn items, text, rubber stamping, ink, etc. etc. The cards must not look like 'something was just printed', but a hand made card.

This is my own swap policy and opinion, and the stance I've taken towards digital work after hosting before. I know it is a bit 'harsh', but that's where I'm at. Thanks!

So I'm nearly finished with these, I just need to put the backs on...

These 4 are from my series 'Loughcrew' based on the amazing prehistoric mounds just up the road from me. There are tons of neolithic carvings {especially setting sun/moon shapes} I've been really lucky to see these in person {with the help of my trusty torch} The mounds are literally a walk away from my home - a steep walk mind you! I visit them every easter and solstice. I hope they are vivid enough for you all!

Paperfairys, your cards came today! No worries.

I couldn't swap them out last night as we had out of town family members decide to drop in on their way through town, and stay. I don't think they would understand if I had to leave them to swap out rainbow cards, lol.

Also, tonight we have major storms in the area, the sirens keep going off and we have baseball sized hail expected. There are some tornados a few miles away too. I don't want to get these out and end up swapping them by candlelight! I'll try to work on them in the morning, even if I have to tie up my kids to get them out of the way to do it.

Remember, we had 45 players in this swap, and less than 1/2 have said where their cards where from, so you may never know. MOST of the time I swap them individually, so chances are that if you have their card, they have yours, if that makes sense. :)
