Cards by: Pumpkincoach, Boatbird, and Jitterbug





Creating Cards:


* Please put your username on the back of each card. Other things you could include are title, real name, e-mail address, location, date, media, and/or swap title. This helps others learn more about you and your art!
* Any medium is welcome, although originals only please! Please do not send copies or photographs of previous work.
* Please NO embellishments that stand up off the cards, this adds considerably to the return postage.


Sending Cards:


*Please put each one in some form of protection. Preferably a plastic card sleeve, or you could use baggies or handmade paper envies (see our template). This protects them from damage in transit and the possibility of them sticking or smudging one another.
*For US participants - please include a SASE with your cards. Make sure you put either your address or mine as the return address. Remember the postage is going up to 42 cents in May!!
**For international participants - I will gladly pay your postage - but please include a SAE or an address label to make organizing easier -thanks!


**Please have your cards to me no later than June 6th! If you need to withdraw for any reason - just let me know, I don't mind at all - I know life happens! :)


Please note: I would prefer no bulky embellishments as they add considerably to the cost of returns. But if you would like to send them, please include (2) 17 cents stamps. If I don't use the stamps I will return them - thanks!


Please feel free to ask any questions at all!! And most importantly - have fun!!!

stormarela
04-04-2008, 05:16 PM
Stormarela - your avatar is what gave me the idea!!! LOL!!

he he, my avatar was a desperate scribble to come up with a dragon for the Bamboo Cutter's Daughter swap. I had the 'jewel' already figured out, but couldn't find an appropriate dragon... so well, under pressure, I drew one. (and, I quite like him!)...
Let's see if he has any brothers for this swap.. LOL (I'm laughing at my own jokes... thats bad, isn't it?)

Just to let you know I recently got a new al in one printer and for some reason some scans come out weird. So the colors may be different in person... I used multicolors in the dragons so it pulls the darker color forward...

Hope these are what youre looking for..

Oh wow, all these hand-drawn cards are awesome! and more than just a bit intimidating ;) hehe I haven't been able to draw a good dragon since high school... *sigh* ;) But i have found a be-au-ti-ful dragon image that I'm doing a gel medium transfer with so they're looking cool! I've made one to see how I like it, now to just sit down and baby the rest of the transfers off the paper (the hard part)... I'm hoping to have them done this weekend. I've got my laptop and a few dvds i rented to keep me in my seat while i'm working. :D

off to create!! :cool:
