I had so much fun on the last Round Robin, I decided to have a go myself.

I've made four sets of backgrounds and will NOT be increasing it, as this is my first try and I'd like to get some experience first please! :)


Each is a set of 3 cards. I've made the backgrounds and will send all 3 cards to player #2 who adds their magic to the cards and sends all three on to player #3. Player #3 adds theirs to the cards, keeps one, and sends the remaining two back to me. I keep one and send the last one back to player #2. We each get a card that was completed collectively by the group.

OK. I will jump in for another go at these. Today I was wondering if I could swing one of my own, but maybe I will use you as my poster child. LOL. I would love to be a player #2, though. I think I am too "green" with these to go for the final touches.

Well, you didn't have to make that public. I only PMed...(she made the mistake of thinking we are all girls here, and forgot to include the handful of guys who also might want to play). LOL. Easy to do here...we are not testosterone driven anymore!

Ibus

No biggie...I just wished to clarify for those who did not read the original post before the edit. They would be left wondering, what in the world that meant! LOL.

Ibus

Sorry Sandy. I've limited it because this is my first try at hosting anything!

The cards are all in the mail. Please let me know when they arrive.

Received cards from lilbad today ~ really beautiful so far! It'll be a challenge to figure out what to add.

Ibus
04-29-2008, 08:10 AM
Wonderful! Have fun. I see what you mean Stormarela, the waiting is the hardest part!!

stormarela

Group two is now in the building! LOL. Sorry, I have been AWOL this past week. I did recieve the backs, and have been pulling stuff out and pushing stuff around to figure out what to do with the darn things! This is not as easy as it seems!!!

I also got the return card from my last round robin (stormarela's) and I am so tickled and pleased with it!!! It is interesting to see a piece of myself added into someone else's art. And Sandymutt did such a wonderful job of topping off the theme. Her little paintings are just darling on there!

Anyway, I am trying to come up with something good for the next player. I hope to have them sent within this next week. I will keep you posted.

Ibus
05-04-2008, 06:59 PM
Thanks STTT. It is difficult. I've still got Stormarelas second lot here, I've added a wee bit to them but inspiration hasn't really struck.

I received group 4 in the mail today. I will work on them over the weekend and hopefully get them in the post early next week. :daydreaming:

I already mailed the group #3 cards this afternoon, but they look similar to this one ~

Ibus

Oh Wow! That's brilliant! Thanks :)

Mrubyjean, you finished up the cards perfectly.....!

Didn't she just! But it's actually the pair of you. The cards are brilliant. I will get yours to you ASAP. Thank you both so much!

Meow2000 and Stormarela,
The cards you both did are just as stunning! Thank you so much. Meow, I'll get yours to you ASAP too.

I'll be posting group 4 - Lavender stars this afternoon. It took me a little while to figure out what to do, I hope you them. I've been trying to figure out how to attach a photo of the cards but I haven't had much success. HELP!!!

Sue W
05-11-2008, 08:16 PM
I should have said I have placed a photo of the Lavender Stars ATC in my gallery ... I am such a techno peasant :biglaugh:

Ibus
05-11-2008, 10:01 PM
Looks great! Thanks for posting. I look forward to getting them back. :D

Nice cards Sue!

stillatthetop
05-12-2008, 12:52 AM
Well, here they sit...all broken hearted! LOL.

I found the perfect goodies to add. A really neat gilded silver and embossed border of flowers from a wedding announcement, and some tropical flower postage stamps.

My question is this....
How similar do the cards need to be? The reason I ask is that the background paper has butterflies in different positions. Can my additions to the card be randomly placed where they seem to fit on each card, or should I try to just position them in a way that blends the same for all the cards?

katilady
05-12-2008, 01:03 AM
I would position them where they look best. Just MHO. I don't think the cards need to be identical. In fact I just did a RR where the person who started the cards (not this site) put birds on each card, the bird were similar sizes and colors but were different birds and one faced a different direction. The cards still looked nice.

stillatthetop
05-12-2008, 01:25 AM
TY. I am new to the RR circle. I knew that the different flowers but all on postage stamps was an OK thing (each one features a unique flower). I was not sure if the cards could have different design orientations, though. I will just blend them as my artist eye sees. That is what I like anyhow! Still pondering a backing piece for them, though.

Ibus
05-12-2008, 01:30 AM
SATT, as Kati says, position them where you think they look best. I've always worked on the 'has all the same elements' idea, rather than them being absolutely identical! Most of all, Don't stress, it's meant to be fun!

stillatthetop
05-12-2008, 01:38 PM
Oh, I stress all my projects anyway. The adrenelin rush helps me perform! LOL. But thanks. They will be finished up today and out in tomorrow's mail. I am PMing citykitten for an addy.

Received my card for the lavender set...it's gorgeous! Thank you Ibus and Sue!

Ibus
06-24-2008, 02:47 PM
I received the final two cards from Citykitten today .... they're stunning! Well done SATT and Citykitten, your artwork is amazing. I'll get the card off to SATT tomorrow.
Please don't forget to give iTraders to the others on your card please.

stillatthetop
07-05-2008, 04:08 PM
Yeah! I got my card today. It looks marvelous! Thanks. I will post iTrader and reps later today. I have to go into town for a bit first.

Ibus
07-05-2008, 08:24 PM
Great! This means we've finished. Thanks everyone for taking part and making this a success.
