Beautiful Sues, Chamele!

Welcome to my swap, Prairiemouse and HiddenTreasure2010! Thanks for playing!

01-21-2011, 01:39 PM
Oh yes, I must join this one!!!! I love Sue and Sam..... already have done one for another swap. This will be fun.....

EVALILA - I'm in USA - did you mean for me to send you a US stamp 98 cents? Can you use that to mail *from* Germany? I haven't done many non-US swaps, so I am needing some guidance on this one re: postage....

Thanks! Gena

Youre in, if you want :)

And yes, I mean US stamps :) I cant use them to mail from Germany, but I can send them to the host when I join swaps with US-hosts.

01-21-2011, 01:43 PM
Love your Sues, Chamele!

Oh gee - was it necessary for all you super artsy people to post your ATCs - haha. I've never done a handdrawn/handpainted swap - I'm just not very talented in that area BUT......I thought these cute little darlings might be a good place to start. There is no way I'd join without testing the waters on this one and so I did. I've got 4 cards done so I'll scan and post them tomorrow. Please let me know if they aren't good enough - I won't have my feelings hurt at all - I'd be more upset if you just took ugly cards from me. I think they are pretty cute so hopefully I'm looking at the cards constructively.

In the mean time please sign me up for the swap - if the cards don't meet your standard you can just take me out.

By the way I didn't even know what those little girls were called - I thought they were like Holly Hobby dolls. haha

01-25-2011, 09:02 AM
Ok - here's my first hand drawn/hand painted ATCs ever - hope you like them.

I just realized I accidently cut off the yellow bonnet girl's dress in the scan but just so you know the ATC is actually the correct size and her whole dress shows on the card. Sorry about the bad cropping.

Ethereal Sheeps wonderful cards arrived today! Thank you for the extra!

03-01-2011, 12:38 AM
My Sues are done. I got inspired by a quilting pattern I had.

They are oil on canvas paper, and then, silly of me, decide to put a thick coat of glaze on top, and I have not decided if I like that or not ... usually oils have a live of their own, and they sort of need to breath. I am at odds if I should re do them ...

What do you think?


03-01-2011, 12:39 AM
Ethereal Sheep I love yours!

03-01-2011, 05:53 AM
