Swap Due Date - October 17th 2019
Signup/withdraw date - None just communicate please
Number of participants - Any
Number of Cards - 3 for 3
Media – HD/HP

This swap is for hand drawn/hand painted cards for Halloween, this one is very different from my other one, this is for all things cute, cute/happy Jack-o-Lanterns, cute creatures/monsters/aliens, kids in costumes trick-or-treating, nice Haunted Houses and cute ghosts etc.

***No plain white backgrounds please***

General info:

- ATCs should be the standard size of 2.5" x 3.5" on sturdy card and cut as straight as possible.
- Create cards that you are proud to sign your name to and would love to receive!
- A hostess card would be greatly appreciated and loved forever, but is not required.
- Send each card in individual protective sleeves. Penny sleeves are great.
- Put your name, username, location, the date, swap name on the back of each card.
- Please PM me for my address when you're ready to send your cards.


Mailing Info
US Players. Please send a self addressed envelope with one forever stamp.
International Players. Please send a self addressed envelope and $2 usd.

No cards and no communication by the swap deadline will result in a neutral rating (I'd hate to do that!). Please let me know if you run into problems or have to withdraw.

Please post your cards to the thread – we all love to see some eye candy!!!

I'm making a set of Halloween LEGO Cards.
Is a BLACK background OK?
There is no layer beyond the black paper, so making these cards requires similar techniques to just drawing on white paper... but... um... the paper is already black. :skeptical:

LuAnnP the lego characters are perfectly fine, but it does need more than a plain black background, you are welcome to use black paper as it would be easier to make the skeleton, but it would need more in the image such as a ground, maybe a tree, some stars, full moon in the sky? Some suggestions.... Just needs to be a full scene :D

Thanks for the reply, amme.burton
I THINK I get it.
I will work with a different concept... but I DO still want to join. I will read over the rules more carefully and I plan to submit early, so if anything doesn't meet the standard I will have time to submit a different card.

Hi friends! I found this cute vintage frog stamp & painted him with watercolor. Does this count as hand painted? If not, no worries — I’ll probably gift him :)
