Zettiliscious Cats!


The above examples were made by Pikkis, notinkansas,crafty, theweavershand, and MelanieS, and are not part of this swap.

This swap is about Zetti Cats - think whimsical, colorful, playful, and odd. Assemble bits of this and that to create your zetti cat and your card. The medium is collage and/or mixed media, so feel free to draw and paint on your art. Human and other animal parts such as arms, legs, wings, eyes, or whatever else are allowed, but please make sure to use enough cat elements that we notice that first when looking at the piece. Also, please don't just send a zetti cat in the middle of a blank card - collage up the borders or background so there is plenty for our eyes to look at. Please send art that took time and care to create - something that you yourself would be thrilled to receive.

Some guidelines for the zetti style (pick and choose as you like):

•Aim to make the ordinary into something whimsical or from a fantasy world
•Use contrasting textures and patterns
•Use lots of bright colours but mix in some black and white patterns such as stripes
•Use mismatched faces and bodies
•Add body parts, clothing and/or wings to a creature who doesn't usually have them
•Give your creatures fantastic hats and crowns
•Combine the quirky, odd and whimsical to make a new Zetti creature
•Use lyrical, poetic, handwritten sayings or text
•Use outlining and doodling to bring all sorts of elements together

Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com/3704797

Now for the nitty gritty:


- Medium is collage/mixed media.
- All cards should be standard 3.5” x 2.5”, and be mounted on cardstock or something more substantial than flimsy paper.
- All cards should be sent in individual plastic sleeves if you have them.
- No heavy, thick or bulky embellishments. Cards must be able to fit into a plastic sleeve. If embellishments are heavy or thick, please include an extra .20 cent stamp for each card sent.
- Please include username, real name, origin (country) and swap name ("Zetti Cats" is fine) on the back of all cards. We can't leave you rep points if we don't know who you are.
- Originals only - no copies or prints.
- Please take time with your art. Submit cards that you would be happy to get in return.
- Make sure cards are well-glued and sealed, if necessary.
- This swap is 3 for 3 only. An extra card in this theme for the host is not required but would be cherished.
- I will try to swap out cards "effort for effort" as best as I can, but you may receive a random card.
- If you need to withdraw, just let me know. Disappearing and failing to communicate may result in neutral iTrader.

Mailing and postage:

- Please include your username and swap name on the back of all envelopes sent in.
- International participants – Please include $1 or US stamps. If you cannot provide this just let me know and I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed long envelope, or at least a large label or piece of paper with your name and address on it. Please no bubble envelopes.
- US Participants – Please include a self addressed business size envelope (the long kind) with .45 cents postage (or one Forever stamp). If your cards are very heavy or thick, please include an extra .20 cent stamp for each card sent.

When you are ready to mail, please PM me for my address.

When you receive your cards for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from. Everyone likes to know where their babies end up.

Please post pictures of your finished ATCs to the thread - we would all love to see them and be inspired!

Rogue Gal
03-27-2012, 02:36 AM
Just wondering but how are you guys getting your cats? I thought maybe magazines or pictures, or just printing them, but I haven't had much luck. Any ideas???

I've been collecting cat images from here and there for years, but a great source I've found is magazines like "Cat Fancy" and such. I went to Goodwill, bought a few pet magazines, cut out some of my favorite photos, and took them down to Staples and made color copies to use in my art. Hope that helps.

Yay - welcome to the swap, ArtDuJunque, sheala.draws, and HiddenTreasure2010! :jiggy:

I hope you will come back and play, lurking Lydia! :yes:

03-27-2012, 03:54 PM

Oh artkitty...I love these! Just delightfully quirky!

03-27-2012, 04:48 PM
I couldn't stop and ended up making more than I need. I'm not sure which ones I will send yet, but here are my kitties:

03-27-2012, 04:51 PM
Oh my gosh...HeatherR, I love your cards too!!! So much cool inspiration, it's distracting me from the other swaps I should be working on!!!:wideeyed:

Rogue Gal

Thanks for letting me know, suzyq :)

Purrfect zetti cats, Thwarmp! Love the tower of fish and the antenna!

05-01-2012, 05:31 PM
This was so much fun - I finally learned how to do Zetti -
Start the first day the swap is posted and work on the cards a little at a time over the course of a few weeks, adding this and that! LOL

Mine are a bunch of Plaid Flannel Shirt and Jeans Zetti Cats each with their own personalities (that came out over those few weeks!) -

Miss Priss - a kitten who doesn't know if she is coming or going -
Tom - The tough guy on the block
Diva-licious - All sparkle and glam
and my fav, Feral Cat - who hangs around at the docks stealing fish scraps

Thanks Rogue Gal for such a fun swap!

05-02-2012, 05:46 AM
i have been trying to find my muse for this theme and just can't. I am going to drop out.


05-02-2012, 08:26 AM
Blanche, I love your kitties! I would adopt any one of them.....hint hint to hostess.:)

05-02-2012, 11:41 AM
I was really wondering if I could do my zetti kitties and then the muse struck last night. For once a cat kept me up all night in a good way!

05-02-2012, 01:30 PM
Absolutely LOVE that third one, Artkeyologist. The yellow tiger, I mean. He's a riot.

Here's mine. I'll get mailed soon.

05-02-2012, 01:33 PM
So many awesome zetti cats! Can't wait!

Rogue Gal
05-02-2012, 02:42 PM

As cool as all the cards are here and as much as I want to take part in this swap I am afraid I am going to have to drop, I just have no time to create something worthy of all the cards posted here.
Great art everyone!

Wonderful zetti cats, theweavershand! Don't worry about not being on much - real life is important, and I know that you have a lot on your plate right now. *Hugs*

Thanks for letting me know, ArtDuJunque - I'll probably host this swap again in the future, so maybe you'll be able to play then. :)

hey, it never hurts to try, right!!!???!!!:wideeyed::biglaugh:

05-21-2012, 10:43 AM
I'm sorry, but I need to back out. I'm totally kicking myself though because my cards have been done and ready to mail for so long. :embarrassed: I still don't have them in the mail yet though and I don't want to be responsible for holding up the swap. If anyone wants to trade privately please contact me by pm.

Rogue Gal
05-21-2012, 08:45 PM
You're right, Bonnie, it never hurts to try ;)

LaDonna - no problem, thanks for letting me know. You have more important things to deal with right now. Hope your son gets better soon!

HeatherR is staying in the swap :) I won't be swapping out until next weekend, so as long as they reach me by Saturday it's fine.

Wonderful zetti cats have arrived from suzie's Arts, theweavershand, and goatgoddess - thank you all for the extra cards!

05-23-2012, 02:07 AM
Yikes! Didn't realize that these are due tomorrow! Finished the last night, but didn't scan or get them together. I will do that right now and they will be in the mail 1st thing tomorrow, when my Hubby can drop them off on his way to work. You can send them back if they get there too late, but you just live a bit from here, so I don't expect it should take long.
Sorry Christine!

Rogue Gal
05-23-2012, 02:30 AM
No worries, Melanie! I won't be swapping them until the weekend, and they will only take a day to come from you to me, so if you can't mail until Thursday or Friday that's fine :) Can't wait to see them!

05-24-2012, 09:51 PM
Here is what they look like:

I have had a death in the family and will be gone Wednesday through Friday to fly east and attend the memorial service. I don't know if I will have access to a computer during that time, so please understand if I can't update you or respond for a few days. I will be available for anything you need on Tuesday, but then may be out of touch until Saturday.

I won't be able to swap out and mail returns until after I get back home - sorry!

05-29-2012, 06:38 AM
Take care of you and sorry for your loss. Hugs

Thank you, Amy!

I swapped out yesterday and today - had about 20 minutes of panic when I realized that I had misplaced three sets of cards - eek! :eek::eek: I don't usually do that! Eventually found them and all is well. Mailed some returns out today and more tomorrow. Thank you all so much for participating in this swap - the artwork was fab! I hope you enjoy your returns as much as I have enjoyed looking at everyone's art!

When you receive your returns, please let us know that they have arrived safe and sound! Please leave "You Rock!" messages for those whose cards you receive, and iTrader for me. Thanks! I still have a few folks to leave iTrader for - if you haven't gotten iTrader from me by the time you get your returns, please let me know :)
