Due Date: November 20, 2021
Withdraw by Date: Anytime - just please communicate
Number of pieces: 3 for 3 coins or 3 for 3 Twinchies
Number of Participants: Unlimited
Media: Any (just make sure they fit into a penny sleeve)
Monochrome Series Brown, Tan, Copper: Coins OR Twinchies
:jiggy:

This is the 5th in a monochrome series. I will post a new color each month. I’m going to do both shapes since some are partial to coins but some love the variety. When you sign up please let me know if you are planning on doing coins, twinchies or both!
:dog:
Upcoming Colors include:
Monochrome Orange Twinchies or Coins - December
Monochrome White / Silver Twinchies or Coins - January
Monochrome Yellow / Gold Twinchies or Coins - February
Monochrome Red Twinchies or Coins - March
:baa:
This round your artwork needs to be mostly Brown, Tan &/or Copper. There can be minimal amounts of other colors.
:dog:
Swap Requirements:
Coins need to have a diameter of 2.5 inches. If you do not have a 2.5 circle die or punch, please make sure you cut your circles neatly. They do not have to be perfect, but they should not look sloppy.
Twinchies need to be 2 inches by 2 inches square. Please make sure to cut your squares neatly.
Original artwork only
3:3 (hostess gifts are never a requirement, but would be treasured)
Good craftsmanship: send in something that you would be excited to see in your return envelope. I will do my best to swap effort for effort.
Please make sure your artwork is sturdy. They need to be thicker than just one sheet of card stock.
Each piece needs to be in its own protective sleeve.
Please include swap name, your username, real name, and location on the back of each piece.
Mailing:
US Participants – Please include a legible SASE.
International Participants - Please include a mailing label with your address clearly written or typed. I will provide an envelope for returns for international players. Please include a well concealed US dollar bill or US global forever stamp.
Please make sure to package your artwork securely. We don't want these wonderful works of art to get banged up in the mail.
If you are sending both coins and twinchies, please have the post office weigh your envelope to make sure you have enough postage (or mail them separately).
When you are ready to send in your pieces, please send me a private message for my mailing address (I did move last year so don’t use a saved address unless you verify). Also, please post in the thread when you send your envelope, so I can be on the lookout.
Make sure your pieces are mailed in time to be in my hands on or before the due date.
It is always fun and inspiring when artists share their artwork in the thread, so please do! Feel free to comment on coins or twinchies that you like in the threat. It makes my job as host easier if I can give you something that I know you’ll love.

When you receive your returns, please leave itrader for your hostess (that would be me) and "you rock" points to the players you received artwork from.

Spiritsoul, Great cards, I did have to look up AMI, and it is French word, meaning a friend, often male. I learn something new every day.

Can you tell us how you did this? Is that a rubber cat stamp and you embellished the designs on the face? Or is that 4 different rubber stamps that come with the design? Or did you hand draw the cats? How did you get the almost human like Irises, in the eye?

Spirit Soul
10-21-2021, 11:51 AM
Castle Queen, I had to look up the French word for "friend" too! Since I had "amigo" I thought it might be fun to have the French version too. The things we learn making ATCs...

That is a stamp set of 3 different cats. I stamped on mixed media paper, then used watercolors and colored pencils.

Spirit Soul
10-21-2021, 11:55 AM
And the twinchies will be along this line... I will mail out this week.

Before you mentioned that it was a stamp set; I spent some time googling cat stamps but never found that exact set.

She confirmed in a Pm that it was Laurel Burch, tribal cats, and gave me a link on Amazon. They are now on my Wishlist cause my son owes me $100, and is going to buy me stuff I need on Amazon.

Sorry to see you go dithespy - but you're right, there's a good chance they wouldn't make it. The orange swap is open )due Dec 20) and I'll be hosting white/silver (due Jan 20) and Yellow/Gold (due Feb20) and Red(due Mar 20).
:huh:
Welcome back Suzi and Somnia

Hello all! Just a quick update. We are waiting on one set that was mailed quite a bit ago. I think they are having a vacation somewhere along the way. I have everything ready to go but will check the mail in the morning before taking your returns to the post office.

My wonderful Twinchies arrived on Dec 23 from: dnewton972, Robin and zandradee; and the ATCoins arrived the following day from: catladybj, somnia and zandradee.
zandradee - this means that I will have to return to give you your 2nd Rep point during the Post-Christmas ATART as I need to have 8 Rep points between your 2.

many thanks to our Host for this amazing series

off to leave points for all

Haagmm
12-26-2021, 02:42 PM
Yay Donnacr- I’m glad you got your envelopes!

I’ll probably archive this swap next week so if anyone has attachments now would be the time to remove them.
