Altered Playing Cards swap with Flower(s) and something that flies
Due July 20, 2012
Number of cards - 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
Number of US participants - unlimited
Number of International participants - I will pay for the first 5 (others may sign up if have return stamp or $1.00 US money)
Withdraw Date - Just let me know

The last APC swap I did, birds, butterflies and flowers seemed to be a popular theme. So this swap is for APC that must have a flower and have something that
flies (birds, butterflies, dragonflies, bees, insects) No UFO's please!!

If you are trying to complete a deck, please let me know what you need and I will do my best to try to send cards your way in the returns that you are looking for.

All cards must be a finished size of 2.5" x 3.5". I know some cards are smaller. If this is all you have, please mount on a background so the finished cards will be the correct size.

-all finished work must be ATC size
-include your name,user name, date, swap name and location on the back of each card
-include a self addressed envelope with postage, If sending 6 cards, please put .90 cents return postage. If your cards are heavy, some loose 20 cent stamps would be great

-put your user name on the back of all envelopes and put your return address on the envelope I will be mailing back to you. This saves me loads of time!-

internationals - please send an address label

-place all cards in a protective plastic sleeve

Please have your cards to me before the due date, do not mail on that date. PM me if you need the address.

05-31-2012, 12:26 PM
I like Stock.xchng (http://www.sxc.hu/). They have free, high resolution stock photos. I use them a lot for what little bit of digital art I get around to doing.

05-31-2012, 02:30 PM
Here's a list of sites I've collected--there's a bit of everything on here:


digitalcollage.com (or digitalcollages.com)
flickr collage images pool

Just one more question...what kind of paper do most of you print your collage items on. Do you just use regular printer paper or photo paper or ?

Cat's Cradle
06-02-2012, 01:48 PM
I'd like to do this one. The due date is far enough away that I can manage it.

06-03-2012, 09:01 AM
Just one more question...what kind of paper do most of you print your collage items on. Do you just use regular printer paper or photo paper or ?

110 lb card stock for me. It gives just a smidge of dimension to the collaged piece.

06-03-2012, 01:29 PM
Here's mine.

06-03-2012, 01:32 PM
And the other 2.

Just a few days ago I was totally stuck for ideas for this swap. Not that I don't have enough flower stuff around, but just couldn't come up with layers/methods/etc that inspired me. Then I remembered a little book a friend had given me. The soft old paintings of wild flowers were perfect for gel medium transfers and by this morning - wa-la.

I just posted some freebie scans on my blog of the flowers I used and more. Help yourself.

07-04-2012, 05:17 PM
Great Cards being posted!!!

Envelopes in from hiddentreasure and mtpaperplayer

07-04-2012, 05:19 PM
My son and his dad were to be going to Philadelphia the July 22 for 5 nights - sightseeing and front row tickets to the soccer game going on down there - the reason for the trip. Well now his dad can't go, so I am going in his place so I will be swapping these cards on the due date!!!! Late cards will be returned when I get back. Thanks all

07-04-2012, 06:36 PM

Yesterday I pm'd Alana that my APCs for the swap were MIA. Did I mail them - without backs on them (ugh!) or I put them "somewhere safe" during a recent housecleaning right before our 4th of July party? Who knows? After 2 days of looking I was resolved that I should just start making a new set. In a last attempt to find the APCs I looked one more time in the room where my scanner is and out of the corner of my eye I see that the lid is slightly lifted - HOORAY!!! My APCs were left in there. I'm so happy! Of course I have to blame my hubby who was helping me scan them the other day - haha - I told him whoever holds the lid down during the scanning is responsible for removing the cards. hee-hee Oh wait I better not harass him too much or he might stop helping me. :wideeyed:

Ok Alana - now my cards will be on there way! Thanks for your patience!

Alanabananna, I think I'm going to have to withdraw from this swap - I just am not finding time in my days to get the cards made. I've waited a long time to withdraw because it's a perfect swap for me, but it's just not happening.... Maybe next time!
