    Betta in Color (betta fish) - Due Feb 11

    Swap Due Date - Feb 11, 2011
    Signup/withdraw date - When full
    Number of Cards - 3/3
    Number of Participants - 50
    Medium - Hand drawn/painted

    Theme:
    Colorful Betta Fish (aka Betta splendens, Siamese fighting fish)


    Rules:
    Original artwork only!
    -- The Betta Fish MUST be done by hand (in whatever medium you chose - acrylic, pencils, markers, watercolor..whatever).
    --card must be COLORFUL!!!
    -- Stickers, photo, stamped image of a betta, and etc. are unacceptable and will be returned.
    --Remember the background! It should be completed too (don’t just draw a fish on a blank, white card and call it done!).
    --Background can be collaged.
    --Make sure all edges are glued down.
    --NO bulky embellishments (keep your cards flat!). It should fit easily in a trading card sleeve.
    --Make your cards sturdy. They should be more than a flimsy piece of paper. So be sure to put on a backing if necessary. If they are flimsier than an index card, it will be returned.
    -- Put user name on the back of your cards!!!!!!!
    --Protect your ATCs in sleeves or plastic baggies.
    --Communicate if you must withdraw. It's no big deal - just let me know! No communication = neutral iTrader.
    --Extra cards as host gifts are always, always appreciated, but never required!

    Mailing Directions:
    * Send me a PM when you are ready to mail, and I'll send you my address.
    * US players Send a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope. Loose extra postage is much appreciated to help international players. Write your username and swap name on your return envelope!
    *Don’t tape the daylights out of your cards! A little tape goes a long way.

    * International participants: Please send a sticky address label, and I’ll provide the envelope. A US dollar/postage is appreciated.

    *Put your screen name and the name of the swap on the back of your envelope.

    Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from! I will be leaving iTrader as cards come in.

    A note on how I swap: I do my very best to swap comparable cards. Ask me in a PM if you want to know more about my swapping method and I’ll try to explain my little method.

    Remember to do your best work and HAVE FUN!

    My hubby won't let me breed them, but it sounds like it could be fun. I'm not sure if my family would all appreciate getting a betta for Christmas Welcome, welcome Karen kensek.
