Fit for a Queen Swap

[SIZE="2"][SIZE="3"]Due Date: April 10th – 2012(Please note I’m in the UK)
Number of Cards: 3 for 3
Number of Participants: 12
Medium: Any/All

To mark the celebrations for the Queen’s diamond Jubilee - 60 years on the throne- I thought for my first swap it would be fun to do a “Fit for a Queen” theme. Imagine if you were a Queen what gift would you like as a Jubilee present???. Gifts could include Crowns, Tiaras, Jewels or Jewellery or maybe something like a Royal yacht, portrait, or even a party??.

Swap Requirements
 All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”
 This swap is 3 for 3
 I would be grateful if you could try not to use any embellishments that will make your ATCs extra bulky.
 An extra card for the host (me) would be really appreciated I cherish all my cards but is completely optional.
 All cards must be original and each card must be different I will try to swap effort for effort as best as I can.
 Please send cards in individual plastic sleeves.

Mailing Information
 Please include username, real name, your state/country and the swap name on the back of all cards.
 Please send a large label with your name and address, I will supply envelopes.
 I would be grateful if players could send a stamp from your country for the same amount it cost you to ship your cards that I can use to send in another swap in your country.
 Please PM me for my address when you are ready to mail your cards

When you receive your returns, please leave I-Trader for me your swap host and rep points for the artists of the cards you receive as its lovely to know where our cards end up.

Any questions please do not hesitate to contact me

Hope you have fun doing this swap.

I've sketched the queen (still need to color her) I prefer not to count the number of attempts that landed in the paper basket.

02-21-2012, 12:34 PM
Gah! I've not even started mine yet! I think I've figured out my ideas going to finish up a few overseas swaps and then get down to business,its handy your in uk too :D

02-21-2012, 01:22 PM
I totally empathise with you lea67000 as loads of mine have ended up in the bin i was really frustrated with myself last night as could not get any i was happy with!!! Might think of some new ideas and give it another try tomorrow! Still loads of time pixiecorpse can't wait to see both your cards and ideas !

02-21-2012, 02:56 PM
I'm working on these today and tomorrow. My art table looks like Buckingham Palace spilled all over it...though thankfully without the Corgis. If my cat woke up to find Corgis in her studio, there might be bloodshed. :)

02-22-2012, 05:18 AM
Love it! your cat sounds like mine!

02-22-2012, 07:42 AM
My queens are ready:

02-22-2012, 04:08 PM
These are done. I'll get them scanned and in the mail in the next couple of days.

02-22-2012, 07:47 PM
I take it back. They don't quite work. I'll play with them a few more days and then get them scanned and in the mail.
