Yes, I believe there have been a few monochromatic swaps :)

Hi Veri, I'll add you :)

As long as the cards are mostly black & white, that's the main thing. Shades of gray are fine as long as they are not the focus. Does that make sense?

Welcome, Naveratei :)

I think it is made by the rules. But please have a look before here (http://flickr.com/photos/11919764@N06/2426675269/) . If it is ok, I will send out on monday :yes:

They're lovely cards, Veri. Fun theme too! I love zebras. I think they look fine though it is hard to tell if they're mainly shades of gray from your photo or if they're black and white. If they are mainly black and white, then they are acceptable. I don't want to make this too difficult for people of course! :)

Welcome, nomnom and Luvloz :)

Amerasu
04-20-2008, 06:55 PM

I'm a bit worried now Sal that mine may have too much grey in them. When you get them if they aren't up to scratch let me know and i'll do some more.

Amerasu
04-23-2008, 04:11 PM
I thought they looked fantastic! I wouldn't worry about it :)

My concerns for gray in this swap are likely going to be pencil drawings since you can never get black enough unless you use a black coloured pencil or marker. Yours were fine!

Hey guys! Amerasu is having some problems accessing the site - so she asked me to post this for y'all :) :


Hi everyone, I am having major connection problems to the AFA website. I am working to resolve them with my ISP and AFA's host but I cannot connect right now.

I have received some cards but I will have to leave the updates and iTraders for when I am able to access the site again. Sorry for the troubles. If you have cards ready to send and need my address, feel free to send me an email

amerasu AT planesphere.com

Amerasu
05-06-2008, 08:02 PM
Hi all, I cannot stay connected to the site for long and I'm here by proxy. I am trying to solve this access block with adriayna so please be patient if you can't reach me. You can always contact Merricat or EraserQueen who can reach me no problems.

I have wonderful cards here from:

I will have to leave you iTraders when my connection to the site has been restored. Hopefully within the next day or two.

Sorry Folks, but I am looking for a bit of reassurance here!

I have had a couple of stalled attempts at this, and I have uploaded work in progress.

Looking at some of the artwork for this swap, not sure I am coming up to scratch.....

The two predominately black ones are me drawing with a scalpel. I have become quite fascinated with cut-outs.

Bright-Spark
05-25-2008, 05:36 PM

Holiday tomorrow, but if Amerasu PM's address, I will get these off on Tuesday.

both sets of cards are great. did you cut the shapes out of the black card and then glue it on top of a write background?

here are two of my cards. the first one is done with quill and india ink the other with black paint with black and white rhinestones

Amerasu

Nice work everyone!

I like cut outs too. I'm not very good with the knife though so mine always end up messy and uneven. But very cool effects can be achieved.

Looking great everyone! Can't wait to see them in person :)

I think I'm going to have to scan and paste all of these beauties into one big ATC poster so we can all admire the black and white beauties in their togetherness glory :)

I have wonderful cards here from Katie and from Brightspark (super artwork on both :)). Thank you both for the extras! I'll leave iTraders tomorrow when I do all of my catch up.

I am so glad that you sent out a reminder.
I thought that I had withdrawn from all of the swaps. It gave me something to do while I was fretting over my mother...
I hope to mail them today. No pictures/scans because my scanner died.

I need help with a technical question ... I am doing one card, maybe more, in prismacolor (black prisma on white cardstock) and I don't know what finish to put on them so the won't smudge after I'm done with them. I tested modge podge and it smeared the black a bit onto the white card. Any suggestions?:confused:

Meow2000
06-19-2008, 12:40 AM
prismacolor has a fixative matte spry for there color pencils you can get at most art store like michael

Queenofthenight
06-19-2008, 01:18 AM
thanks Meow2000 ... I'll get some tomorrow!:jiggy::cool:

Amerasu
06-19-2008, 08:28 AM
Yep, or any art supply store will carry it. Personally, I'm not a huge fan of the prismacolor brand spray since it tends to leave a gloss on blended pencils. I usually buy as matte as I can get.

Queenofthenight
06-19-2008, 09:38 AM

Just about a week left to go on this swap! I have a couple of envelopes here which I will leave iTraders for today after work.



Does anyone have any objections to me scanning all of the cards and showing them here? If you do, just say so or send me a PM and I won't include your cards :)

rockstarsgirl
06-23-2008, 02:38 PM
I'd like to see all the cards. It's ok with me to use mine. Thanks!

Thank you for understanding.

No problem :)

Sorry all, I will have to update the received envelopes tomorrow as I didn't have time today.

Amerasu
06-29-2008, 06:49 PM
I have arrivals from Jonquil, frog princess, luvloz, Polar Art and Queen of the Night. Thanks so much for the extras!

Amerasu
06-30-2008, 06:45 AM
It's due day :)

I'm waiting on a few sets to arrive in the mail. They're already on the way. We have a two week leeway between due date and mailing out so we have time to wait on the last few sets to come in. No one needs to worry if their cards are still on the way. :)

Amerasu
07-01-2008, 10:47 AM
Hi j4mi3, no not yet. The mail comes very soon so I'll update the thread today :)

I have cards here from Musicgal, jazzie, midnightcreations and triskele. Thanks for the extras everyone!

Just a couple more packages to receive and we're good to go :)

Amerasu
07-02-2008, 07:01 PM
still no cards, i hope that they come soon,sorry for the lateness!


No worries! We have a two week grace period and I certainly don't mind using it waiting for the rest. Sometimes the post office can take the winding route :)

midnitecreations
07-02-2008, 07:58 PM
So glad the cards finally made it. Looking forward to the returns!

Amerasu

icequeen07, your lovely ladies have arrived! Thanks so much for the extra! :)

Amerasu
07-07-2008, 01:24 PM
Nothing came in the mail this morning as I had hoped. We're still waiting on a couple of sets to arrive. We're still within the two week mail out period so I'll hold out a little more and see what tomorrow brings since they're on the way anyway :)

Ravenswood
07-07-2008, 07:34 PM
The suspense is killing me :)

Forgive me, its my first swap :)

Amerasu
07-07-2008, 11:15 PM
Ah! First swaps are exciting! I'll trade some out tomorrow then and make sure yours go out, Ravenswood :)

I can't imagine we'll be waiting past tomorrow anyway. I am a postal optimist - most days. I'll get the scans up tomorrow too so you can all see how much great art can be done with just 2 colours.

Amerasu
07-08-2008, 06:43 PM
I have everything sorted for this swap now and I will mail 3/4 of the returns out tomorrow.

I'm still waiting on one envelope that has been mailed so I'd like to give it a couple more days to arrive. That's why I'm keeping some packages back. :)

Amerasu
07-09-2008, 11:23 AM
I decided not to scan every card because it was just too much work and I'm pretty short on time. So I made these two swap galleries for AFA instead. I believe I have at least one card from everyone here.

:)

All packages are on the way except for a few that I have held back to swap out with the set on the way.
