All Returns In The Mail Saturday - May 5, 2012

Swap is full - thanks for looking!

This will be a series of Zentangle Alphabets ATCs Swap - HAND DRAWN!
( add lots of colors )

This Swap will start with the letters: A, B, and C

Due Date: May 6, 2012

This swap is for 3 ATCs - " A, B, C "
This is for Hand Drawn!

* All Players must have their ATCs to my house by the due date.
* All coming in after that date will be returned.
* Pm me for my address when you are ready to mail.
* Post to the thread to sign up for the swap.

Please do not sign up and then not send your ATCs to me at all, this will result in a neutral itrader rating for Non Communication. Always remember communication is very important in any swap.

USA PLAYERS - PLEASE INCLUDE A SASE WITH .65 CENTS POSTAGE ATTACHED.

INTERNATIONAL PLAYERS - PLEASE INCLUDE A SASE WITH YOUR ADDRESS WRITTEN CLEAR A $1.00 BILL OR USA POSTAGE WOULD BE GREAT TO HELP ME OUT.

I will leave itrader for all players the day I receive your ATCs.
When the swap is complete and you have your ATCs please leave " Rep Points " for those players whose ATCs you received. A " itrader " for me the host would be great too :jiggy:

Here are some examples of some I made for my own collection:

I actually --No Kidding-- had this idea based on a swap from mzspurslasso's Lions-Tigers-Bears (do one of each, get one of each) and from Donnacr's monthly Bizarre Holidays swap. When I saw another mixed media ABC swap, I thought I'd wait a few months and make that my third-and-moving-forward swap. WELL. Since everyone has beaten me to it, I wanna play!!!! :P

Robin,
This being my first swap, I am more than a little nervous. LOL! Your note said "lots of colors" and I wonder if 3 are enough? This includes the color of the paper. I'll try to attach what I've done so far...

Thanks Robin! I was worried. :D

Another question. Hope this is the right place to post it... in general is it more common to make all 3 in the same "style". That first one uses negative space and this next one doesn't at all. Wanted it to but it just isn't happening. :no: But then this is why I'm doing a test run first. :cute:

Great cards being posted. Here are mine, colors are not showing up as vivid on screen. What kinds of colored ink pens are ya'll using? I feel like mine are so thick compared to my black pilots.:wacko:

9605096051

9605296053

96054

As an idea for net time...would black ink on colored paper be acceptable?

No, I'm not nervous. Why do you ask? :wacko:
