All Things Gothic

This swap is about anything GOTHIC. You can paint, collage, doodle or zetti!!

All cards must be standard size 2.5" x 3.5".
All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
Original art only, each card can be the same or different ones. No copies please.

* Cards are due to me by March 5, 2012. 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 canīt leave RepPoints when we donīt know who you are. And itīs 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)

Colourful cards!

Jesimal, I would like to join, as I have completed mine to mail already-was inspired to continue creating old-fashioned style Gothic arches in black and white tones by the Bodacious Arches Swap I was just in

Collages all, using public domain images...and backed by the layered napkin paper I made and you see them displayed on

They are:
Night at the Opera, The Awakening,The Meeting Place and The Summons

Mine are underway. I hope they'll be Gothic enough. They're sort of odes to Poe, with lots of red and black. Today as I pasted bits of torn Poe text, I kept thinking, "This guy really needed some prozac." For found poetry fans, if you ever need words like "despair," "misery," "unnatural," "poison," and "haunted," go for Poe.

02-03-2012, 03:20 PM
My cards went in the mail today :D

02-04-2012, 01:51 PM
Mine are done. I had much fun scribbling the backgrounds....very therapeutic. If Edgar didn't want prozac, he should have tried scribbling instead of opium. :)





02-04-2012, 03:51 PM

I was unable to get my cards in the mail, so will not be paricipating. I was not signed up tho either. : (
I hope it is ok to let you guys know I have been in contact with Jesimal, she is not checking online very much at all, has some personal things going on, so that is why she has not posted lately. She is ok, just busy.
