Color Palette - Purple/Blue/Green (http://www.flickr.com/photos/kristinized/6614534177/) by _kristin_ (http://www.flickr.com/people/kristinized/), on Flickr

The purple/blue/green color combo is one of my favorites, there's so many possibilities to explore shades and layers! We are going to be using those 3 colors for this swap, the what and how of your cards is up to you. You can use any variant of purple, blue, or green or use just one or two of the colors if you please.

Instructions:

Each card must measure 2.5 inches x 3.5 inches, no exceptions.

Cards must only use the set color palette (purples, blues, greens), though white or black may be used in small amounts. I trust you enough to make your own judgement calls on whether a color is purple, blue, or green, but feel free to check with me if unsure.

Flat mixed media? Yup, and I mean it. Please don’t use 3-D items like brads, foam tape, beads, etc because they can cause your cards to get stuck and ripped in postal machines. I do not use padded envelopes for returns and have found flat cards mail the best. Please also respect copy right, if you're not sure an image is copy right free/free use then it's best not to use it.

Make sure your real name and AFA user id is LEGIBLY printed somewhere on the back of your cards. If I can’t match it up you may get one of your own cards back accidentally and that makes me sad.

US players please send a long #10/business sized SASE (one first class stamp should be fine). If you don’t have a business sized envie just send a mailing label and postage and I’ll take care of the envie. I will use small SASE or other materials if you send them, but am not responsible for lost or damaged returns.

Players outside the US please send a printed/typed address label. For postage send $1US or US stamps.

The usual site guidelines apply, any cards that do not follow the swap instructions or are falling apart will be returned in the player’s SASE. I don't swap blindly and try match cards in and out as best I can, so please submit your best work. Also, I will be making a swap gallery to show off your art!

When you receive your returns, please leave an iTrader for me and reps for the artists.

I wasn't sure how these colors would work together. I'm taking the free workshop sponsored by Strathmore papers and which Traci Bautista is presenting. I thought I would try a watercolor with blue, green, and blue. I used a yelow green and the colors went so well together! After the gel medium seal dries, they'll go in their envelope. Will be in the mail by this Friday.

You can do abstracts if you please, the only theme limitation is the colors. :)

^they're beautiful!


Can I still join? I know that it will have to be quick turn around, but I think that I will be able to make them in the next 2 or 3 days and then have them in the mail with a week to spare. Thanks!
^why not, welcome! let me know when you're ready to mail and I'll send my address.


Mine are on the way! Still trying to figure out why I can't upload my pics!
^it's possible you can't upload pics until you've been a member for a certain number of days, although what kind of error are you getting? are you trying to upload files to the gallery, or link them from another site?

tlsexton0913
03-03-2012, 03:28 PM
just error....I think my pics are too big. I'm still working on it! :D

Try this:

Go to your gallery or wherever you have your image and right mouse click on it.
Select "Copy Image Location".
Start a new comment in the thread you wish to post your image and hit the "Insert Image" icon.
When the box pops up for the URL of the image paste (Ctrl+V) into the box.
Before closing the box; scroll over until you see the size that the image will be, which is "large" by default. Type in MEDIUM and your picture will be perfect for posting in the thread.
Good luck.

Picked up several envies this morning - meredithu, donnacr, and smikell! I'm going to go through all the envies tonight and leave itraders, usually I wait until I send out the returns but want to get things organized.

Cards should be in by March 9 - which is this Friday! If you haven't sent yet please contact me ASAP for my address.

Thanks everyone!

That's understandable Mrs T, I'm sorry for your loss.

kristinized

Just got done leaving itraders for most of the cards that are in - don't worry if I haven't updated you yet as I have several left to go.

I'll be sorting and swapping these out this weekend, and planning on mailing on Monday. The end is in sight! :elvis:

kristinized
03-20-2012, 12:38 PM
All iTraders are left, now we just have to wait until returns start arriving!

I put a reminder in each envelope, but I'll post it here as well. Remember that you don't leave itraders for cards received, only for the host. You can give a rep comment (the You Rock button) thanking the artists for their card and maybe saying which one you received. Some players like to keep track of where their cards go. Feel free to comment in the swap thread as well!

I hope everyone had fun making and exchanging cards!
