Fabulous Feline Fairies!


6833168332683336833468362

The above examples were made by me (first two), amyfaerie, mrubyjean, and RobbyGirl, and are not part of this swap.


What could be better than kitties with wings? For this swap, you will create 3 cards that each feature a winged cat. The cat can have angel wings, butterfly wings, bird wings, bat wings, insect wings, or fanciful wings from your imagination. They can be flying or not. They can be collaged, drawn, stamped, painted, digitally altered, or anything else you can think of. If you can find an actual winged cat as you go about your business, photography would be fine as well. The medium is yours to decide, but please send art that took time and care to create - something that you yourself would be thrilled to receive.

Now for the nitty gritty:

Guidelines:

- All mediums welcome.
- All cards should be standard 3.5 x 2.5
- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
- No heavy, thick or bulky embellishments. Cards must be able to fit into a plastic sleeve.
- Please include username, real name, origin (country) and swap name on the back of all cards. We can't leave you rep points if we don't know who you are.
- Originals only - no copies or prints.
- Please send in your best work. Submit cards that you would be happy to get in return.
- Make sure cards are well-glued and sealed, if necessary.
- This swap is 3 for 3 only. An extra card for the host is entirely optional but very welcome.
- I will try to swap out cards "effort for effort" as best as I can. You may receive cards in a different medium than yours.
- If you need to withdraw, just let me know. Disappearing and failing to communicate will result in neutral iTrader.


Mailing and postage:

- Please include your username on all envelopes sent in.
- International participants I will pay for the 1st 4 people. All others should be able to include $1 or US stamps. Please include a self addressed envelope. Please no bubble envelopes.
- US Participants Please include a self addressed business size envelope with .44 cents postage. If your cards are heavy or thick, please include an extra .17 cent stamp.

When you are ready to mail, please PM me for my address.

When you receive your cards for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from. Everyone likes to know where their babies end up.

Please post pictures of your finished ATCs to the thread - we would all love to see them and be inspired!

Hi princessgene, yeah it filled in two days. I didn't know that feline fairies would be quite so popular!

Just to let you all know, I will be out of town for a few days, with limited computer access. I'm check in when I can, and hubby will be collecting any kitties that might happen to fly in, but it may be a few days before I can answer PMs or let you know that your kitties have arrived. Should be back Monday night or Tuesday.

I'm very happy to see the wonderful cards that have been created so far!

Amy, I won't guarantee anything, but I do take comments and "hints" into consideration as much as possible when I swap :)

And I agree with everyone, Barb: your kitties are absolutely adorable and very Springy (is that even a word?) Kitties do like to help with the gardening, and yours are no exception. :cute:

My feline fairies are in my gallery. Is there a way to shrink the image so I can post. I just tried, and they were gigantic.


yes, you can make them "medium" or "small"

Go to your gallery, click on your image and click again to enlarge it.
Then copy the URL
Go back to your post and click on the icon to "insert image"
Paste your URL and add "medium" or "small" in the line
Click OK and you're done!

see this example where I put the word "medium"
(and if medium is too large, just click edit and change it to "small")

MeoWwww, you're closed! Come on let me in, I have 6 rescue cats that are my furbabies! So, it's safe to say I am the neighborhood cat lady! :)
Please, please, please, let meow meow play!
Thank you, Melanie

Aww MelanieS, I would love to let you join! Unfortunately, I am limited by the AFA powers-that-be to 30 participants for this swap, but I'd be happy to add you to the waiting list. We've already had a few people drop, and if anyone else drops you will be the next in line to join.

"Furbabies" is what I call my kitties too, and anyone who has 6 rescue kitties definately deserves a spot in a swap like this. I will let you know if a spot opens up :)

Not yet, but keep hope :)

notinkansas, that feline fairy is so cute, and I love the paw print blossoms!

I have a question for you all: I am considering doing a feline fairy chunky (or not-so-chunky) page swap later this summer. Would any of you have an interest in that?

ArtsyLady
05-16-2011, 07:29 AM
I'de love to add to my chunky book, let me know...I will be working on my cards this coming weekend...had to complete some other commitments before creating my kitties...Sorry Melanie..don't count on me..

Rogue Gal
05-18-2011, 03:03 AM
Cool, novasmem, I'll be sure to send you an invite when I post the swap :)

Three more sets of feline fairies flew to my door - woot! Raingirl, andyaly, and scwk0511, your fantastic felines are here! Thank you all for the extra host cards, and thank you Raingirl for the extra postage - it really helps with my Internationals! And that mama fairy nursing her kitties is just too cute!

It's about 2 1/2 weeks until the swap deadline - how's everyone doing with their cards? I know that novasmem and notinkansas are working on theirs, and I need to start mine. We still have plenty of time, but if anyone needs to withdraw just let me know. I look forward to seeing more kitties posted in the thread!

mrubyjean
05-19-2011, 08:30 PM
That's gorgeous, notinkansas!
Looks theme-ly enough to me *just my two cents* :)

Rogue Gal
05-19-2011, 09:24 PM
Ooh, I love it, notinkansas! I was trying to figure out what would make it "off theme" and then realized that it doesn't have a cat body - no matter - it's catty enough for my tastes, and for mrubyjean's as well :) We vote that you send it in!

notinkansas
05-19-2011, 10:03 PM
terrific! I'll mail ASAP...I think I have your address from a previous trade...unless it's changed and then I'll need you to PM me. Thanks!

Here is my set of FFF! 4 going to the swap, others kept, one may be able to trade. Hard to let go of them, I LOVE them all! I almost decided to keep only the wings colored, but then decided to try a light wash of watercolor. Well, maybe a lot of watercolors, and some copics to finish off and add depth. I hope you like them. They are supposed to be Persians, except for "rainbow" who is a Rainbow Point Siamese fairy. :twitcy:

Names of kitties: starting from top left: Midnite, Lavender, Rainbow, Fluffy (It's SO FLUFFY!), Princess, Rusty, and Azure.

Thanks everyone for the nice comments about my cards!

Today the final set of cards arrived - right on the due date! I think that it's incredible that all the cards arrived on time, that almost never happens! You guys rock! Thanks so much for being so on top of things!

To reward you all for being so very conscientious, I came home from work, ripped open that last envelope, and set about swapping out the returns. I've been at it for hours, but all the cards are in their envies and ready to fly off to their new homes! I'm actually proud of myself, because I am procrastinator girl. Anyway, I will be mailing out about half tomorrow and half the next day, so some of you should start getting your returns by the end of the week.

I think that I have given everyone iTrader, but if I have missed you, please let me know!

Please remember to post to the thread when you receive your returns. I am anxious to start my next swap but can't until a majority of returns have been received by the swappers. Above all, please remember to leave "you rock" messages for the folks whose cards you have received, and iTrader for the host (me). Everyone likes to know where their creations ended up, and they really like to know if you love their cards.

Thank you all so much for playing in this swap! You all have been a delight and so creative and supportive of each other. It's been so fun to come into this thread and see your wonderful creations and the variety of art posted.
