Welcome Pikkis! It was a bit challenging for me. And that's one reason I thought it would make for a good theme.

Welcome to the swap Jensaz! You only have to use the face in all 3 cards. All of the other elements should be different.

Hi Beyondshay

Connie Powell
05-03-2012, 08:23 AM

Hi Elena,
I'm going to try to post pics of your cards for you. They are so pretty. Let's see if this works!

Connie Powell
05-03-2012, 11:35 AM
It would be great if everybody would post pics when they are finished with their cards. I would like to put them in a gallery here on AFA so everybody could see our artwork. I recently had a very hard time posting pics and a nice lady sent me the following directions which made it so much easier. I thought I would share them here.

Posting Pics to a forumGo to the forum you wish to post pics on just as you would leave a message but…..
Click on Go Advanced
If you want you can Title your thread response or just type in a message.
Next click on the little paper clip icon in the toolbox.
A Manage Attachments box will pop up - click on Browse and find your scanned or photographed ATCs.
(I have a folder right on my desktop that I put my ATC scans/pics in so my images are easier to find.)
Click Upload
Close that screen and then Scroll down to Submit Reply.

love the cards Elena!

05-04-2012, 12:26 AM
Such amazing cards Elena!!!

Connie Powell
05-05-2012, 05:08 PM
Great cards received from Elena today. Beautiful coloring and such a sweet face!

05-06-2012, 08:00 AM
I finished my ladies last night and this is how they turned out :)! Not sure if they are anything like the ones you had in mind for this swap Connie... The zetti in me seems to take control every time I have to deal with body parts (LOL), but I tried not to make them too much zettis! Anyway, Ill pm for your address!

Connie Powell
05-06-2012, 10:06 AM
Hay Pikkis, very pretty cards! I like Zetti.

I really didn't have a set style in mind for this swap. I wanted to leave it open to interpretation as much as possible to allow everybody artistic freedom. Cards can be Zetti, Vintage, Abstract, or a mix of any style you like as long as all 3 are different except for the face.

Connie Powell
05-10-2012, 10:02 AM
dezineliz has posted her cards to her gallery. Check them out. They are awesome! It looks like this swap is going to be a lot about Zetti. Which is fine because I do like Zetti. I'm thinking I should have called it My Zetti Lady! LOL.

05-10-2012, 11:01 AM
Took a peek and they are really fabulous :)! Wouldnt mind if one of them would find a new home with me ;)!

Connie Powell
05-10-2012, 02:48 PM
I am posting Dezineliz's cards at her request! So far I'm seeing a lot of talent.

Connie Powell
05-12-2012, 02:09 PM

Connie Powell
06-02-2012, 10:10 PM
WildGoose and Maine ATC I have pm'd you my address. Can't wait to see your cards. Thanks!

06-03-2012, 04:35 AM
I went realistic for this swap, rather than Zetti,I fear......and had tons of fun doing this - just hoping there's enough variety!

The face I found interesting is that of an actress from the turn-of-the- last-century called Eileen Notte, the picture was taken by Alexander Bassano, the British portrait photographer in 1912.

Collages all, using digitally altered photos and paintings. Metallic pen for highlights
Back-grounds are layered napkin paper (3) and water-colour(1)

Connie Powell
06-03-2012, 01:48 PM
Very cool cards WildGoose! I can't wait to see them in person. I'm curious to see your napkin paper backgrounds. I've done cards on stained coffee filters and I like that. But I haven't tried napkins...yet.

Connie Powell
06-09-2012, 08:33 AM
Great cards received from Wildgoose yesterday! And a cool napkin paper tutorial. Thanks so much for that and the extra card!

06-12-2012, 07:56 PM
Notinkansas, awesome cards!!! I hope one falls my way....hint hint...#3 is my fav..with the big hat...

06-13-2012, 09:11 PM

cheers Karen

All of the cards are in! In the next few days I will be preparing envies and swapping out cards. I will let you all know when they are mailed so that you can be on the look out for them. A variety of styles were received. Some Zetti, traditional, etc. It has been wonderful to see all of the different styles and techniques. Thank you all for playing, the hostess cards and most of all the Inspiration you have given me! You'll be hearing from me soon when I am ready to mail out cards.

Hello to All! Saturday I sat down and swapped the cards. To be honest, I was a little nervous. It's my first time hosting. I triple checked to make sure everybody got cards from other players! LOL. I sincerely hope everybody will be happy with their returns. I am mailing the cards today. When you get them please leave iTrader for me and Rep points for the players you receive cards from. It would also be nice if you posted to the thread to let us know you received your cards.

Connie Powell
