http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gallery/images/7556/1_debs913_aarrggh_python.jpg

Rules of the Road
- All cards should be the standard size: 2.5” x 3.5”.
- All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves.
- All cards must be original, and each card must be different. Please do not make copies, submit prints, or create three cards that are minor variations of each other.
- Show off your talents. Send work that took time and care.
- Hand drawn or Hand Painted only please...no embellishments!

Mailing & Postage
- When you're ready to mail, please PM me for my address.
- Make sure your name, user name, location, and the swap name appear on the backs of all ATCs.
-PUT YOUR USERNAME AND THE SWAP NAME ON THE OUTSIDE OF ALL ENVELOPES

- US Participants, include self addressed business size, and $.65 postage LOOSE in the envelope. If you have very heavy cardstock, send extra postage as non-bendable envelopes incur additional fees!

I weigh each envelope and they almost always weigh more than an ounce. While I'd love to subsidize you, I am on a fixed income and can't, so please send $.65, thank you!

- Canadian players please send:
*$1.03 in CANADIAN postage LOOSE OR
*$1.08 in US postage OR
*$1 US AND
****a self addressed business size envelope or a large mailing label with your address.

-Other international players a US $2 would be appreciated OR (if you host swaps) postage for your country sufficient to mail 2 ounces (which I can use in future swaps). **** Be sure to provide a large "TO" label with your name and address clearly printed. I CAN TAKE PAYPAL if this makes it easier for you. PM me.

- Please mail your cards early so they arrive on time. US players, it can take 1 week, Canada usually 2 weeks (CANADA MAIL has been extra slow lately, so be aware), other countries usually a week to 10 days. I don't want to wait on late mailed cards as it is not fair to the other players, so plan ahead, please. I might nag if you are the last one we are waiting on (but will do it with love ;).

Returns
- When you receive your returns, please leave iTrader for me and rep points for the artists. It is always nice to tell the player which card you received too. I will link players names to make this easy peasy.

Host cards
A host card is not required, but I really LOVE getting them, very, very much :D

Ms_Squid
02-23-2012, 02:47 AM
All right, you had me at monsters...I thought about lurking, but I'll just crumble as swiftly as a sand castle on the beach during an incoming tide and rambunctious children.

Fabulous monsters so far!

Here are my first two (unfortunately the scans aren´t very good, cards are darker IRL):

Ms_Squid
03-07-2012, 04:00 PM
Evalila, your monsters are wonderful!

debs913
03-07-2012, 05:01 PM
Not surprising, computer monitors can only exhibit 256 colors...so scans are going to look a lot different than the originals.

artsylola
03-07-2012, 07:49 PM
Lurking........

debs913
03-07-2012, 09:54 PM

shahzaadee
03-07-2012, 11:04 PM
NickyBlade-Your talk of things technical scare me. Maybe I should use that as inspiration for one of my monsters!
Jewels-You are the bomb! :notworthy:

debs913
03-07-2012, 11:24 PM
Not to panic. It means that when one gets cards in person they look SO much better :D

Evalila
03-08-2012, 08:33 AM
Here are the last two:

Ms_Squid
03-08-2012, 04:25 PM
Shranma definitely looks creepy! Awesome monster collection Evalila! :)

Here's Cuff Snoort, the snot-colored reptiloid. He threatened to fray my cuffs if I didn't finish his drawing first. :no:

debs913
03-09-2012, 09:37 PM
Did some sketches for my monsters today. So far an Ogre, the giant orange frog with point teeth from Stephen King's Duma Key (with upside down flying heron and scary lawn jockey) and wrackspurts from HP. We will see if the sketches mutate into something good. I've applied the corticoelectrodes...lol

Shiver. Clowns. Hiding under the bed now ...

Those eyes follow me wherever I go. Yikes ADJ!

Remember, Deb, you can always keep the clown in a box just like you did with my clown. Hopefully, the box you keep it in isn't a jack-in-a-box type or else you'll hear Pop Goes the Weasel in the middle of the night and then...:wideeyed:

debs913
03-10-2012, 09:52 AM
Ms. Squid...know what else is in the box? A whole bunch of LARVA...Muhahahahhahahaha

TERROR-IFIC Monsters from JOSS...thank you for the host card (how will I choose??!)

EYEBALLING-IST Monsters from DEZINELIZ...ROOOOOAAARRR! Thank you for the host card too!

Miss's MONSTROSITIES gnashed their teeth and rattled their horns at me, many thanks for a host monster too :D

And Art du Junque's SHAMBLING SHIVERERS are clawing at the inside of their envelopes..many thanks for the hostie card from you :D

Great cards everyone!

Great site, Deb, and your Merperson is something I don't want to encounter if I'm ever in the mood to go swimming in a lake, especially one called Black Lake. It's like going skinny dipping in the Black Lagoon when you're not aware that Mr. Creature resides there.

debs913
03-26-2012, 10:20 AM

In keeping with the Harry Potter monsters, I've added a werewolf. I didn't quite get the expression I was hoping for, but I wanted to experiment with shading (something I am trying to learn!) so it was a good image for that.

Shahzaadee....wow, LOVE your monsters, especially Frank! Love the expression on his face!

Deb, I just did a random watercolor background and then used copic markers on top of that. It seems to take on a kind of translucent effect :)

Doesn't the watercolor run when you put the marker over it??? I have prismacolor and I will try it. Maybe copic are different.

andyaly
03-27-2012, 06:08 PM
No, it doesn't seem to, rogalaca....I do make sure the background is very dry first, but maybe it is the copics. I haven't tried other types of markers. Let me know how the prismacolor works. :)

I don't think I have ever heard hailstones that loud hitting the house and windows! :eek:
I hope everything is OK in your neck of the woods!

debs913
03-31-2012, 08:53 AM
We had lots of lightning and rain, but no hail. Had to give one of my dogs a Xanax as he's scared of storms and was shaking like a leaf. Glad you are okay--it's been such a weird spring!

ArtDuJunque
03-31-2012, 10:04 AM
Have you thought about one of those thundershirts for your pooch? I've heard they do wonders. My dog doesn't care about anything except when people come over he turns into a danger because he was his tail so hard that we're afraid of him breaking something.

debs913

How fun! I have kind of a crazy question but I believe you are a progressive gal so I'm going to ask.

I was wondering if I might do something a bit unusual. I've been working towards recycling everything, now hear me out before you freak out. I have 4 dogs and they generate a lot of poop. I've been experimenting a bit (clothespin on nose) and it actually works really great as a paint, similar to tea and coffee painting with more texture. After completion I coat the paintings with a heavy layer of varnish to protect from any smells or bad bacteria, really you wouldn't know the difference. What do you think (try to think beyond the gross out factor.)?
