Do bird pokemon count? I've made some for the Pokemon swap, but if I don't get in (I'm waiting listed), can I send them to this one? They're cute and whimsical! But nly sketched, so far. Off to ink 'em now.

Here's the first one:

http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=66388&d=1299753912

See, cute and whimsical - his name is Rufflet. I"m about to draw his female counterpart, Vullaby.

These are exsentially for the Pokemon swap, but if I can't get off the waiting list there, I hope to send them into this swap instead.

I mailed my cards a few days ago. I have been without a computer for nearly two weeks! Such withdraws! Anyway, I picked up my thoroughly cleaned computer today (major virus problems) and I'm back online. So, unfortunately, I wasn't able to scan my cards or post them.

AnnaArdvaark!!! This is soo much fun! Might I entice you with a peek at my first whimsy bird, EVER? Jenny say's he is a 'funny birdie'.... a cross between an owl, a flamingo, a penguin, a peacock and a robin, to be exact! I think he's just cute! :)

RoOskie

Ha, ha! If anyone can entice me to play in swaps, it is definitely Shay! LOL! :laugh:
The only hesitation I have is how much I stink at whimsical! I LOVE the style but can't seem to get it down. This might be a good opportunity to give it another whirl but I will feel better if I work up the cards BEFORE I join.

AnnaAardvark, I looked through your beautiful gallery. I can see why whimsy might be so different from your norm, BUT it looks like you might be able to channel Dr Suess again for inspiration. Your ATCs for that swap were awesome! :)


Ha, ha! If anyone can entice me to play in swaps, it is definitely Shay! LOL! :laugh:
The only hesitation I have is how much I stink at whimsical! I LOVE the style but can't seem to get it down. This might be a good opportunity to give it another whirl but I will feel better if I work up the cards BEFORE I join.

Who can resist shayNOLA's cheering? She could convince someone that they could paint the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel! LOL! :laugh:
So I did try to channel my Seuss vibe and I came up with this. She is rather whimsical if I do say so myself. I guess I am confident enough to commit to a few more cards so may I play, please?

Hm.. Lurking and have been lurking. This has passed my Three-Touch Rule, or in this case, View. Look at an object once, curious. Pick it up a second time, interested. Go back to it a third time...give it up and buy the darned thing.

So I've convinced myself now. *sigh* Sign this bird person up!

HI! My cards are done. PM me your address and I'll get these right out to you.
BTW, are buttons allowed? I put one on a card (I didn't see anything about embellishments in your initial description), but I can remove it if that's a problem. (It's still my art, so I have no problem with this.)

In some order, the birds in the attached ATCs are Cardinal, Kingfisher, Flycatcher & Lovebirds. Thanks for hosting, RoOskie! This will go out in the mail tomorrow!

My cards are done. I noticed the lack of "no embellishments" in this thread description as well ("Music in the Air" swap). Some of my cards do have them, so I hope it's not a problem. If there's any issue when they arrive, let me know. The cards are taking flight tomorrow. wheeeeeee!

Glad my cards arrived safely. I am a bird lover at heart, having parakeets as pets throughout my childhood and adopting injured pigeons when near the house. And don't even get me started on the "Angry Birds" or "Tiny Wings" game apps...yee-hoo!! These are posted in my gallery, too. Note that the button on Fumpy Bird Garden was removed.

@RoOskie - I couldn't remove other embellishments, but that one wasn't essential so I did. It's the spirit of the swap, and I now know that your swaps prefer no embellishments, stated or not. :)
