Holy Cats! another ATC Swap
This is a Mixed Media Swap


We have had butterflies, things with wings, men with wings, angels and even dogs with wings... But this swap is for CATS with wings and halos. Holy Cats! How many times have you said "Holy Cats!" about something amazing? Have you ever imagined just what Holy Cats would look like? Now is your chance. Each card in this swap must contain a CAT(atleast one) with wings and a halo. The rest is up to you!

This is a mixed media swap so please use at least 3 different types of media on each card. This is a chance to experiment a bit! Use layers, textures, and glazes - layers of paint, papers, textures, stamps, hand-drawn elements, all kinds of bits and bobs. Just please remember to keep your cards fairly thin and flat for mailing. Please stick to small flat embelishments, and put each card in a plastic sleeve for its protection.


Due Date:
Cards are due in my hands by August 29th . Please note, I am in Canada and the mail takes an extra week at least to get here, so mail early! This will be an on time swap. I will mail your return cards on Sept 3rd.
NOTE: Late-arriving cards will be held for 1 week past the due date, swapped with other late cards, and then sent back out. (If there are not enough late arrivals, you may get some or all of your own cards back!)

Postage:
Canadian participants, please enclose a SASE envelope.

USA participants, please enclose a LOOSE stamp for the same amount that it takes to send your cards to me. I can’t use it on your returns, but I can use it on future swaps I participate in with US hosts. I’ll put the appropriate amount of Canadian postage on your SAE.

All other International participants, send a self addressed envelope or large address label. I will cover your return postage. An extra ATC for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is greatly appreciated, but not required.

Rules:
1. Send your BEST cards – cards that demonstrate your best workmanship, and that you are proud to share with others. Each card must be your own work, with unique hand applied additions. Remember, you need at least 3 mediums for this mixed medium swap. (no digital only or multiple machine made copies)

2. Clearly write your USERNAME and SWAP NAME in these 3 places:
* On the back of all your cards
* On the front of your mailing envelope
* On the front of your return envelope

3. When you sign up for this swap, I will PM you my address and a reminder of the swap details.

4. Post in the thread to sign up, and to have fun, and to share uploads of your cards.

5. I will give iTrader feedback the same day I receive your cards, and will also update this post showing that your cards have arrived. In return, I encourage you to give iTrader host feedback for me when you receive your swap returns, and Reputation Points for the artists whose cards you receive.

Here's a hint: Holy means different things for different cultures. (So cloak-n-dagger...this really only applies to one of the cards...I'm really just trying to create suspense...is it working?)

Meow...isn't that the great thing about kitties...even when they are angelic...there's still that little bit of som'n you just can't trust?

I love it. We have about 150 (or so it feels like) cats...and they are what we call 98% sweet and 2% stinker.

stormarela
06-26-2008, 09:54 PM
I don't know. I think the cards really need to be taped together in a long flat line.. so they can squeeze through the machines... I think the kitties were too rambunctious and clawed their way out of the envie...

Did you tell her he is the pope? Of course, a friend of mine swore the pope doesn't wear a hat - I'm like, he wears it all the time - I would too if I had a cool hat like that! Sometimes he just wears his pope doo-rag, but when he's doing important pope stuff, he wears the big pointy one!

Where am I going and what am I doing in this handbasket?" Now this is hilarious! I love it!

rockstarsgirl
07-08-2008, 05:01 PM
hehehe there's an episode of Futurama were they talk about how their parents would still think they were irresponsible even if they were the Pope. "Put on your good vestments." "Where's your Pope hat?" John Paul II would have loved your card. He was very into art and never took himself too seriously. The new Pope....not so sure.

Ok, ok....I'll take my "I'm a Catholic" hat off. hehehehe

Cheeka
07-08-2008, 05:06 PM
Put on your good vestments - I love it!

I always admired JP - he was a good egg.

Cheeka
07-08-2008, 11:10 PM
Ooops - I did not read the rules CORRECTLY and neither of my HCs has a wing or a halo - I hope nobody minds.

stormarela
07-08-2008, 11:20 PM
10 Hail Mary's for you. I think we will forgive you ... this time, Cheeka. The cats are really cute.

Cheeka
07-08-2008, 11:29 PM
I can do some rosaries, too - and some Our Fathers! Just because I'm not Catholic NOW doesn't mean I've forgotten my roots! And I will go to confession too!

stormarela
07-08-2008, 11:45 PM
(I'm not Catholic at all, but.. I've seen some movies...)

Cheeka
07-08-2008, 11:58 PM
Grin - good because I have an idea - can't share yet - just think "enlightened one"

Edit - here they are! I had to give some other religions equal space.

Swami & Buddha!

Y'all are cracking me up with your kitties and chatter. :) Too cute!

nanner
07-09-2008, 11:02 AM
Hilarious!

I even love that you used the word "Swami"...that word just doesn't get enough play anymore.

Cheeka
07-09-2008, 11:15 AM
Really, there aren't enough swamis running around either - grin. It's hard to find a good swami these days.

Now I'm getting a mental pic of mesmerizing - you know how they did in the popeye cartoons, with the hands? You are getting sleepy, sleepy...

Dangit! I need to add a jewel to swami's head! Swami's have those dots, right?

nanner
07-09-2008, 12:30 PM
YES...and in fact (hilarious as it is) I think the last time I heard swami was in Popeye!

You are cracking me up!

So, maybe just one sparkly gem...to channel the swami's powers?

nanner
07-09-2008, 12:32 PM
Oh, my...was just about ready to walk away from the computer and my brain buzzed...was the swami the Popeye episode where they end up in a trance:

Olive Oyl: I love Popeye, I love Popeye!
Popeye: I lovesk Alisk the Goon! I lovesk Alisk the Goon!

???

Cheeka
07-09-2008, 12:44 PM
giggle - I think so!

stormarela
07-09-2008, 01:30 PM
oh my... I have to be careful here, Nanner says something funny, then I say, oh, wouldn't that make a good swap theme, and then all of a sudden we are all signed up to make something silly, and then we all giggle and laugh and share art again... oh, not again...
oh, not again...
popeye swap, swami swap (oh, thats funny, say it out loud a few times) swami swap, swami swap.... of even better, HYPNOSIS swap...

Cheeka
07-09-2008, 01:34 PM
Oooh popeye - salami, salami, boloney! Agh Agh Agh Agh Agh (how do you spell that?) and I am always up for a swami swap! hee hee

Hyponosis sounds fun! Hmmm. You are getting sleepy, I'm sure of it!

nanner
07-09-2008, 02:19 PM
Oh, you are all cracking me up!

Stormy, a Swami Swap...dude, it even SOUNDS cool to say it.

stormarela
07-10-2008, 12:21 AM
my grandma always said " its better to laugh than to cry" which always sounded to me like " duh, no kidding" ... but, I've come to understand more of why she said it.... its all about timing... like laughing when grandpa fell off the roof ( he wasn't really hurt... ) ...etc

Mysia

JoyFlower
07-20-2008, 12:27 AM
Thanks for your sweet words, ladies!

Nanner....he's on my desk and from where I sit he's not whispering. :laugh: Maybe THAT's why he's grumpy...he wants to come home!

Cheeka
07-20-2008, 12:46 AM
I know what he's saying - get these effin wings offa me before I attack and suck your blood! Wings inspire blood-sucking, I'm telling you. You don't believe me but a flock of those winged cats are going to fly up to someone's window one of these days...oh wow did I say that out loud and admit my craziness? Oh well.:huh:


Joyflower...that grumpy cat is saying something to us...can you hear it?...I can barely make it out..."Nanner is my mama....Nanner is my mama."

stormarela
07-20-2008, 06:10 PM
well, the thing about cats is, after they go for the jugular, they lick you clean, purr for a while, and curl up on your lap... they are like that.

as long as I solemnly do swear to actually swap them out, we will all be good. of course, if I just accidently forget about the swap part, my binder will be stuffed full of awesome holy cats...

of course, I won't forget,, I am sure I would be reminded and reminded and reminded!

The cats are looking wonderful. I better hurry up and make mine!

I love your kitties! Such great cards from everyone. If you think you have a lot of swaps due....there is a 3 day period where I have more than 12 swaps due (in about 3 weeks). They'd run out of server space if I put them all in my signature line.

DisharmonicDeity
08-04-2008, 06:19 PM
I made some holy cats of different sorts- Caracals and ocelots need lovin' too, you know. I'm still a bit unsure of myself right now, seeing as I'm brand-spankin' new at the moment, so I wanted to make sure my quality was up to par. I'm particularly fond of the ocelot myself.

Cheeka
08-04-2008, 06:21 PM
Mine flapped their wings your way today! Okay -oops - mine have no wings. I hope they make it! :eek:

How do I upload my cards to the thread or create a personal gallery? Sorry. Newb here.

DisharmonicDeity
08-05-2008, 04:16 AM
Ooh! Ooh! I know! Pick me! If you hit the "Gallery" button in the topmost menu bar, there's an upload button in the center of the page just above the new images. Hit "browse," find your file, pick a category, add title and description, and then hit "upload."

If you just want to attach them to a post, click "go advanced" and in the "Additional Options" box is a button marked "Manage Attachments." From that window, hit "Browse," find file, and upload, rinse and repeat.

That help?

DisharmonicDeity

Just a quick note, we are about 3 weeks from the swap deadline, so if your kitties are still running around in your head, or on your art table, its time to capture the little cuties. Mine are in various stages of completion myself! I've received just over half the holy cats cards, and they are looking wonderful!!!!!!
