Lets have fun with this!

DON'T LEAVE YOUR BACKGROUNDS PLAIN WHITE ;) make it colored or add details.

Picky Details
*Please measure and cut carefully. I will not accept anything that's more than and eighth of an inch off the correct size.
*Your AFA username (at least) should be on the back of each one. It would be nice to add your location (country or state) and date as well, but it's up to you.
*please protect your artwork in sleeves when you mail. (in case the mail lady neglects to close my mailbox all the way and it rains...) If you don't have any sleeves, plastic wrap works
*Original artwork only please (don't photocopy or scan/print your work and send in the printed out artwork.)
*late cards and/or a lack of a withdraw will result in a neutral. Please ensure you mail on time.

Postage Requirements:

US - clearly write or type your address in black or blue (not a pastel blue...lol) on a mailing label or piece of paper, your address should be at least 1" x 2" - please do not send envelopes!
(no return address labels, they're too small)
Please include one .49 (forever) stamp (.71 or 2 forever stamps if sending 6 cards)

International - clearly write or type your address on a mailing label or piece of paper - I will provide envelopes
please include $1 USD or US Stamp equivalent, Paypal or your own country's postage equivalent for that weight
(I love international postage and can sometimes use them for international swaps :cute: )

Please PM me for my address when you are ready to mail. If you post your request for my addy in the thread, I will not see it right away.
I'm still in Dix, IL if you have my addy from a previous swap, but please let me know that you've mailed! (please do not mail to Plainfield, IN, I am no longer there!)

When you receive your returns for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) so I know you're returns have arrived and you rock (rep points) for each card you receive.

bumpity bump!

Anyone ever seen the show Tanked? I just happened to discover it on Hulu this morning. They make aquariums in unusual situations/styles. The first episode I watched, they made an 8 piece drumset into 8 aquariums and in this one they're making a working vending machine aquarium (dispensing sodas, not fish LOL).

I'm not a big fan of the "reality" style banter n stuff in these kind of shows, but this one is pretty cool to see how they make the aquariums. Can't even begin to imagine what these cost :eek:

Seems that iridescent inks don't scan well. Do you have any tips for that? You will certainly notice the difference when you see them in person.

Kynara
01-24-2018, 05:12 AM
WooHoo!! Everyone's were in so I went ahead and swapped them all out! They're ready to go to the post office Wednesday.

one note however, as I'm making up envelopes, I throw the stamp inside until I'm ready to seal it (just in case there ends up being a problem with the envelope and I have to reopen)... anyways, I may have accidentally left a stamp in one of the envelopes because I was one short when I was finished... so... Merry belated Christmas to whomever got their stamp back! :biglaugh: :twitcy: hehehe consider it a surprise bonus :cute:

I hope everyone likes their cards... I was very thrilled with how awesome the cards turned out in this swap! iTraders and rep points for hostie gifts coming up!

by the way, I only managed to come up with two for the swap lol here are my cards:
