View Full Version : Hand drawn/Hand painted Purple-Swap, Due May 1, 2011

02-16-2011, 09:57 AM
Swap-Due-Date: May 1, 2011
Sign-ups: until full
Withdraw: doesn´t matter, just let me know you have to drop out
Number of Players: 20 The Swap is full!
Number of cards: 3 for 3 only
Media: handdrawn/handpainted only

Returns went in the mail May 2, 2011

This swap is all about the color PURPLE

Your cards can be any style - abstract, whimsical, realistic - as long as they are handdrawn/handpainted in shades of purple with black and white only if needed. Please do your best work.

Make sure your cards are standard 2,5" x 3,5" and put each card in a plastic sleeve.

I´ll provide the envelopes. Please include a LARGE address label or piece of paper with your name and address clearly printed/written on (NO tiny address labels used for the return address, the PO doesn´t like them).

Since most or all of you are internationals to me, I need help covering postage. So it is due as follows:

German Players: Please include a LOOSE 0,55 € stamp.
Players from €-Countries: Please include well concealed 0,75 €.
US-Players: Please include a LOOSE $ 0,98-US-Stamp (I can use these for swaps with american hosts:))
all others: I´ll cover postage

Please remember, I am in Germany, so allow enough time for your cards to get to me. I´ll swap out cards promptly after the due date so you may have your returns by May 16 ("Wear Purple for Peace-Day" in the USA)

So, who wants to explore the color purple?

My purple cards are done.
All are soft pastel in purples only. Milford Sound I & II have and metallic acrylic ink underpainting and III & IV are on white paper. The light lavender scanned as white. These are done from photos I took on an excusion to Milford Sound in New Zealand. A fantastic place to visit.

This is a very quiet thread. I sent my cards quite a while ago. I'd like to know if they have arrived.

04-05-2011, 06:13 AM
I´m back from my trip to Spain and cards from Catey were waiting for me. Thank you so much for the extra!

Sorry, CherylS, your cards haven´t shown up yet:(

04-05-2011, 07:34 AM
Hmmm. I mailed them on 3/12. Maybe they're on the slow boat.

04-13-2011, 11:38 AM
Cards from Prairiemouse were in the mail today, thank you!

04-19-2011, 08:16 AM
It seems as though my cards are missing. They were mailed 3/13. If they don't arrive by the due date obviously I'm out of this swap. I don't have time to redo them.

04-19-2011, 01:59 PM
i'm going to have to pull out of the swamp- i mean swap. what i am is swamped and i doubt i'll make the due date. so sorry, evalila.

04-20-2011, 02:22 AM
No problem, thanks for letting me know!

04-22-2011, 12:01 PM
I just realized that I forgot to post the scans of my cards! (Which are already on the way)

A quick note: some of the colors ended up looking pinkish, but I assure everyone that these were all made with shades of violet, purple, and lavender!

This has been an awesome swap! Thank you, Evalila!

05-11-2011, 01:35 AM
Just a gentle reminder:

Please don´t forget to leave RepPoints for the players whose cards you have received. And an iTrader for me would be nice, too. If you don´t think I deserve one, at least post to the thread when you received your cards, so I know they made it safely.

You have to know, I´m always VEEERY nervous until I know cards reached their new homes :twitcy:

Thank you :wubclub:

05-11-2011, 03:29 AM
I received awesome purple cards from AmericanHwyFlower, gbennett1989, and Catey. These are so lovely! And thank you, Evalila for hosting such a great swap in my favorite color!

Off to leave reps and itrader now.
