It Swims in the Sea...

This swap is all about the wonderful creatures that live/swim in the sea!
Fish, Octopi, Whales, Sharks, Seahorses, Sea turtles, Squids, Jellyfish, Crabs, Corals, etc...The possibilities are endless!

The Nitty Gritty about the cards:
-Each card must be ATC size, 2.5" x 3.5" inches and on a sturdy base (cardstock, bristol, watercolor paper, chipboard).
-Cards must be hand drawn or hand painted.
-Draw what you please so long as it is a creature that lives in the Sea.
-We all have different skill levels but please only send work that you have put effort into and would be happy to receive! I attempt to trade effort for effort.
-Label all cards with your real name, AFA username, date and name of the swap. Please send each card in a protective plastic penny sleeve or handmade envie.

Postage:
US Players: please send a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope with the same amount of postage it took to get your cards to me.

International Players: Please send a well concealed $1 bill in your envelope and Include a large address label with your address neatly printed.

*Make sure you allow your cards enough mailing time to get to me, late cards will be returned.

Please write your username and Swap Name on your envelopes.

Itrader:
Cards are due in my hands on July 5th.
Late cards will be returned at your own expense.

I will leave itrader for each player as I receive their cards, I ask that you leave itrader for me when you receive your returns and you rock points (rep) for your fellow traders whose cards you have received.

If you sign up and do not communicate by not sending cards (without withdrawing) you will receive a neutral itrader.


An Extra card for the host is always welcome but never required.

If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask and when you need my address to send your cards please message me.

Feel free to post your cards to the thread for all to see. :jiggy:

Now who is ready to play?

I have my ATCs finished but need your address. I noticed that small girl drew real sea life. My fish are designs. My sea horse is 'real'. Do I need to re-do my ATCs or are imaginary fish also accepted?

kr904
06-10-2016, 09:03 AM
I noticed another post that answered my question about whether or not we needed to draw 'real' sea life. Anyway, thought I'd post my cards for you. Thanks again.

Well, it's like this.....
...I had all kinds of ideas for different sealife, but seahorses won out! I did the first one and the other 3 followed very quickly, so I stuck with my "seahorse muse"!

If that is ok, I'll be mailing these as soon as I get the address to send!

wolfpax3
