ZETTI CROWS X 2

HAND DRAWN
Number of Cards: 4/4, 6/6, 8/8
Number of Players: USA: open - International: limited to 5
Join or Drop by: June 1, 2008
Due to me No later than 20 June, 2008


I love Crows and hopefully you are ready for another Crow swap...This one will be a bit different in that it will be for 4 for 4 (or 6 for 6, etc) but 2/3/4 of the cards will be ZETTI Crows and 2/3/4/ will be Regular Crows.....and each person will receive even amounts of each in return....I hope that makes sense.


(Example: You send in 4 cards. 2 will be zetti and 2 will be regular. You send in 6 cards. 3 will be zetti and 3 will be regular.)



RULES AND GUIDELINES:

Hand Drawn (painted or colored pencils, markers etc)
Good Quality Paper (Card Stock, Watercolor etc)
In Plastic Sleeves

On the back please put:
Swap Name
User Name
Real Name
Title/Series/#

Envelopes should show:
Swap Name
User Name
Amount of cards enclosed

Please put same amount of postage on your return envelope as you needed to mail to me.

International Players I will pay postage and in return an extra card would be appreciated but not mandatory to join.

Cards will be mailed out the week after due date or sooner.

I KNOW YOU ALL KNOW THIS BUT: PLEASE DO YOUR VERY BEST WORK - IT ALWAYS SHOWS WHEN YOU DO NO MATTER WHAT LEVEL OF AN ARTIST YOU ARE.

For lots of examples of what ZETTI is go to: www.teeshamoore.com

If I left anything out please let me know. If I do not respond to your request to join in 24 hours please PM me. I have over looked people before and I don't want that to happen this time.

is the # for regular crows correct? I'm subscribing to this thread but I'm not ready to commit myself yet. It sounds fun, good luck

Can you please explain just what zetti crows are????

rocketwoman
03-23-2008, 11:44 AM
i'm in this sounds great. i think it will be a lot of fun to make these cards.
Thanks!

Hope you decide to join. It means you send 4 cards two are Zetti and two are regular crows and you receive two zetti and two regular in return. Hope that makes better sense.

Maxie23 - I added a link for you to go to for examples of what zetti is. It is a whimsical way of drawing your subject. Usually with black and white rectangles/boxes somewhere in the art.

rocketwoman - welcome and thanks for joining.

DADAology

Maxie - Great! You might go on flickr or other ATC sites and search for zetti perhaps they will offer you more examples. The cards I'm working on I have a boxed border that I alter black and white sometimes color the white boxes, my crows have long legs that I color black and another color (draw lines and fill in the little boxes) and usually put on a pointy hat or a crown and also section it off in boxes and alter black and another color. I will scan some when the gallery is open again. I may try to upload some to the flickr site so you could see them there. Again thanks for joining.

lets get in here and do some chatting and keep this at the top to get more players....

Chatty tell us about your painted art dolls.

I'm back, been gone for a week. My painted art dolls. Well, back in February just for the fun of it I took a online class of one of Sherri Goshen it was a Doll name Charmed One. At the time due to health reason I could not get them done, 2 of them are now done.

This doll we gesso and painted which is right up my ally then we collage it too. Well I just finish 2 one is going to Australia and one to Canada. These are birthday presents. I have one more to do for myself which I'm going to really experiment on do something completely different yet like the pattern. I'm taking pictures today, I'll have to share them with you all. Keep your eye's open for them.

05-20-2008, 12:25 AM
FYI - I can't remember if I mentioned it or not but I've been off work for over 2 weeks with God only knows what. I have taken so much cough medicine I got to where I was just drinking it out of the bottle. I have coughed so much that I have strained the muscles around my ribs. I can't even begin to tell you how much that hurts. Went to the doctor today and found out I have pneumonia! Isn't that just great.

For now please pm me if you need anything. I stay pretty sleepy and I don't want to miss any ones post here.

DADAology
05-20-2008, 12:27 AM

Sorry I haven't been on but tried to go back to work and couldn't yet, came in today for half a day and if I didn't hurt so bad in my back and chest from coughing I'd be okay, but it hurts to lift my arm, to breath and oh my if I cough or sneeze I almost cry. But I'm getting my strength back, easier to get up and get around the house now and I'm eating a little now. Sure be glad to be back to my normal how ever crazy it is...ha.

chatty
05-30-2008, 08:30 PM
Take care of your self pneumonia is nothing to mess with. Make up some warm lemon juice with honey it soothes the coughing spells. I didn't want to really bother you that is why I asked the group if anyone had your address. Get well, my thoughts n prayers are with you.

Okay, here are my pictures the mediums I use is ink and watercolor.

hi all!
chatty...........wonderful cards, nice work!
DADA.....glad you got the package all safe and sound. thanks for the compliment too, so happy that you liked them. was a little worried at first, since I had not done a crow swap before, especially a zetti one. but I must say, it was very, very fun and I learned and grew while doing it too.:spinny: don't you worry about not being on as much......you just focus on getting better! the more run down you get, the longer it takes to heal and the more chance you have for a relapse. I have had it too, after my first neck surgery.......It was awful. felt like something turned me inside out and then jumped up and down on my chest and ribs. I feel for you truely. get better soon, I will be thinkin of you and sending you get well thoughts.:spinny: I will pm the addy to chatty if she still needs it.

lildebi
06-02-2008, 12:35 AM
Here is my first card for the swap....a zetti crow

Forgive me, I am still getting the hang of linking directly to flickr pics. For the moment please use the link in my signature or check out my gallery. I am bleary eyed and going to bed. See you all in the morning with more crows:)

lildebi
06-02-2008, 06:42 AM
Okay....Since my brain is awake this morning it occurred to me to check the FAQ "How To" on linking to pics in my ATCsforall gallery. So let's see if this works.

lildebi - I agree great work.


I'm doing better today I came to work at the reg time. I feel okay except I am still very sore in my back and chest, but I know that will take weeks to completely heal. My lap top (my NEW lap top I might add) is the pits!! I am having the most difficult time with it so my work computer may be my link to you guys for a few days. So If I don't respond quickly please know that I will. Thanks again for your understanding...

lildeb when did you mail your cards? I still haven't received them.

DADAology
06-25-2008, 07:54 PM
lildebi I have your cards. They were at the post office. I had an postage due slip that my daughter didn't let me know about. They are amazing by the way! I want all of them! :>)

This is just FYI to all. Be sure your cards are flat and even then if they are bulky you will be charged the parcel rate. The post office here is getting pretty bad about it. I received 3 postage due this week. When feeling them they don't feel any heavier, but it's the bulk. They don't go through the machine.

DADAology
06-25-2008, 08:09 PM
I just want to say thank you to all that sent extra cards, sometime I miss telling someone thank you.....I mean that and I appreciate the extra effort. ruby911 sent me the cutest little inch stamps of little crows....they are great! This was a fun swap. I will be trading the card tonight and will get them in the mail by Sat......
Thanks all.

The International Cards will be a few days longer. I mailed them a few days after the other cards, I wanted to make sure there was enough postage and I'm glad I did. I didn't know that postage had gone up for them too. I used to be 90 cents to UK now it is 94 and it was 69 to Canada now it is 74. I also mailed another swap yesterday and all the envelopes had to have 20 cents extra postage. If the envelope does not bend like just a regular letter they charge a surchage because it has to be hand cancelled. The conveyer belt the mail goes through seems to have twists and turns over and under and cards with any bulge or padding will not go through and will get caught in the belt and stop the machine and most likely damage the envelope and contents....so to be on the safe side from now on if you send bulky cards in a swap I would put extra postage on it.

07-04-2008, 06:58 PM
hi everyone! love, love, love my cards!
