Swop Due Date - cards to be with me 23rd June
Signup/withdraw date - 14th June 2008
Number of Cards - 2 of each chosen colour
Number of participants unlimited





The Second Let’s get coloured in!!!!!

Ok so here’s the plan, let’s have a multi themed swop!! Hopefully it’ll work – again!!, if it doesn’t go according to plan exactly well I apologise now in advance!!!
Whilst there are some wonderful swops about at the moment I thought that we could do with setting up a swop that can be as easy or as hard as you want it to be!! I want it to be able to be in any media what-so-ever, just please consider that the effort you put into a creation shows, so just splatting a single sticker onto a card does not qualify as the greatest art, whilst a few hurried squiggles drawn in pen is also not what I’m looking for here. What I am looking for is art that you would be happy at receiving. Art that you find difficult to part with. Art that makes others smile. Art that makes other ohhhh in delight when they open their envelopes.
If you think you can do this then this swop is for you!!!!
The swop will be split into different colours. Making cards predominately of the colour stated. You can choose to do as many sets as you wish. Each set of cards needs to consist of 2 cards.
So here we go I hope that this works and that you all enjoy the idea.

Please remember that post can take up to 2 weeks to arrive here from overseas so post early!!
As this promises to be a big swop again, please will International Participants help me by paying towards the cost of their return postage. ($1 if 2 -4 cards but $2 if the full set – many thanks)
UK Participants – please send a SAE as usual!

Include me and I will do a set of each color and hope to receive a set of each color back. Are you saying people could do more than one set pre color? For example, 4 pink?? A bit not sure here on that line. You are a sweetheart to take this on again.

As long as you make it really clear on your envie that you want/include 2 sets then I am happy to swop out that way as well!!
Apart from one small cock up when I sent one card back to its maker it wasn't a big problem, so hey what ever you lot want!!!

What colour is Septia?

fantasy firebird
03-27-2008, 06:33 AM
What colour is Septia?
Sepia is that pale brownish colour that all the old photos were made in. If you have a digital camera there is usually an option to take the photo in sepia.

Elena
03-27-2008, 01:37 PM
I would like to join all the colors, and get the a set of each color in return.

I'd like to do each colour and get each colour in return. Thanks FF. Now I'm an international participant but I don't have any US money. How do you want me to do this?

Patti
03-30-2008, 08:59 PM
I'd like to play too. Kinda unsure about which colors to choose, so I guess I need to choose all of them. Five colors, two cards for each color. I think I can do that.

dmnh
03-30-2008, 11:56 PM
I would like to do this swop again! I'll sign up for all colors. I had a fabulous time doing the last swop, I suspect this one will be no different!
You are a brave soul, FF!

Hi FF

Please can you set me up for a set each of all the colours, happy to get whatever colours work for you in return.

I do have a question though: how do we do predominately black??:wacko: All I can think of would be a black cat in a dark alley:P. No, really, do we use a light background? This is a question for all who are doing the swap as much as anything :)

JackieR
04-10-2008, 07:23 PM
I am doing fabric for these and am using a black background, but I will be using silver highlights.

fantasy firebird
04-11-2008, 03:25 AM
as Jackie has said the main colour needs to be black or pink etc, however that doesn't mean that you can't use another colour or even different shades of black or different textures!!

RoOskie
04-14-2008, 12:40 AM
Im ready to send my two cards. Where do I send them? This was fun. I think next time I'll do all the colors! Thanks

lilbad
05-04-2008, 01:58 PM
FF,
I mailed 10 cards on 4/10/08--hand delivered to the post office. There was also an extra card for u for hosting(tulips). The package was a padded envelope. I can't figure out why it hasn't made it to u. I have copies of the paintings if that is any help.

Those are great!!

Here are mine. I wanted to do all of these in fabric and I am pleased with the result. I must admit the sepia was a challenge. One here for the lovely hostess.

I have to agree Shirley, that is some beautiful work. I admire anyone who does the fabric cards, I enjoy sewing but would never have the patience for doing atcs!!

Stargroves
06-08-2008, 12:48 PM
Please can you take me off the sepia and orange lists? I've been struggling and I'm not happy with my efforts so far...:embarrassed:

I'll get purple, black and pink in the post tomorrow.

Thanks!

fantasy firebird
06-08-2008, 02:46 PM
will do!! come to think of it I need to get these cards done LOL

dmnh
06-09-2008, 01:05 AM
I'm still working on mine. I'm not sure about the sepia cards. Those threw me for a loop, but I have two cards in the making nonetheless. All that's left to do completely are two cards in black. That won't be too hard to accomplish in a couple of hours time which I intend to carve out of my schedule tomorrow.
My cards will be in the mail soon.

Ibus

I've done the machining, but feel I need to do some handwork before finishing them off. I got kind of carried away, so if I get the extras done (orange and pink) is it OK to send them?
