View Full Version : HELLO KITTY - Due February 1, 2012

12-02-2011, 07:55 AM
Due Date: February 1, 2012 Please remember I am in Australia!!!
Sign-Up: none - as long as your cards get to me in time!
Withdraw Date: January 25, 2012
No. of Participants: UNLIMITED

This swap is about HELLO KITTY. You can paint her, collage her, doodle or zetti her!! She can be realistic or whimsical

All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
Original art only, each card can be the same or 3 different ones. No copies please.

* Cards are due to me by February 1, 2011. Please allow enough time for your cards to get to me. I live in Australia - mail will NOT reach me quickly! I normally allow 2 weeks when mailing my swaps to anywhere else in the world - I suggest that you do the same.

* Please include at least username, real name and origin on the back of your cards. We cant leave RepPoints when we dont know who you are. And its always fun to know where cards come from.

* Please PM for my address when your cards are ready to go

Australian players - please include a stamp equivalent to your postage usually $1.20
International players I can cover international - any contributions are very grateful
ALL players please include a LARGE address label with your username on the back I will provide the envelopes

1. Do your best work - I plan to swap like-for-like, as much as I can.

2。Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your cards (so you can get fun rep points) and on the back of your mailing envelope.

3. Please mail early to allow time to reach Australia.

4. An extra card for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is greatly appreciated but is not required.

5. Embellishments Please keep them as flat as possible! Also please ensure that your completed card will fit into standard pockets and that the embellishments are securely fastened so they don't fall off during shipping.

6. Have fun!!

7. I will give iTrader feedback when I receive your cards, and will also update this post showing that your cards have arrived. In return I encourage you to give iTrader host feedback for me when you receive your swap returns, and Rep points for the artists whose cards you receive. After all, knowing where your cards went is half the fun. (I think)

SunTrade, love the cards. You are super fast and so good. What's your secret?

So cute Suntrade!

12-09-2011, 07:41 AM
LOVE the cards Suntrade!!
Welcome TF Balding :)

12-09-2011, 11:51 AM
Thank you guys!

No special secret Dena. Except for portraits, I can draw relatively fast, specially cartoons, as they are relatively simple .... then I have a 12 year old that is engaged in all types of sports, and I spend half of my life just waiting for him, so I carry my drawing box instead of a book, so I do not get bored....

12-09-2011, 04:08 PM
I would like to play please. Hello Kitty is my daughter's favorite. Everything is hello kitty even her debit card. Oh did I mention she's 26 and a professional? Glad that she still has a little kid in her

So I thought it would be fun to show here a painting I made last March for an auction to gather funds of the victims of the tsunami in Japan. Mainly because was inspired by the Hello Kitty Shop in Taiwan!

You can see the reference here:

That's a great picture SunTrade. I just drew my cards. I still have to color them but it wasn't as hard as I thought it would be. Turns out cartoon Kitty is not too hard to draw. Probably because she only has thumbs and no mouth. I'll get them finished by the weekend and get them posted. I had fun making up different characters for Kitty. Unfortunately I couldn't stop at 4 so it's going to be hard narrowing down the ones I'm going to send in.

12-13-2011, 06:51 PM
Add me!!

12-14-2011, 03:12 AM
Got my Kitties done. I'll need your address to send them.

12-14-2011, 01:33 PM
Jewels they are so cute

12-14-2011, 02:57 PM
please add me to the list

12-14-2011, 11:30 PM
These are the first ATC's I have ever handrawn for.....so it was a bit of a challenge I drew Hello Kitty and added/paper pieced/collaged her to assorted technique backgrounds which have been watercoloured, stamped etc.


Leaving my fourth card as a surprise for you Jesimal.

I will get in the post in the next few days. Thanks for a great swap!

12-14-2011, 11:32 PM
I am loving the assortment of Kitty's being shown here, they are all fabulous! You guys all rock! Can't wait to see which ones I will be lucky to receive!

12-14-2011, 11:38 PM
Jewels, love your cards. Super cute!

D-Dazzled love your cards too. The underwater card gives me a good idea for my mermaid card.

My daughter is Hello Kitty. It's her room, clothes, toys, tree ornaments, etc. So she's been giving me ideas on how to draw her. So far I'm up to nine line drawings and she asked for more today. I'm goin to be drawing Hello Kitty for a while. I'll post as soon as I get them colored.

I am so sorry to hear about your Nana, don't worry I totally understand.

I was basically raised by my Nana, and I love her to pieces. My prayers and heart felt sentiment is with you.
