    Mermaids with a Touch of Zen(tangles)




    The swap guidelines for this swap are a bit different than others I have hosted. Please read the information below carefully. Thanks!!!

    Mermaids are a favorite around here.

    Zentangles are fantastic and fun to do.

    For this swap, send in your best Mermaid cards with zentangle accents somewhere on each of the cards. The zentangles can be in the water, mermaid’s hair, fish swimming by, or anywhere else your creative muse might like.

    Just make sure you have BOTH a mermaid and some zentangles on EACH card. The cards do not have to be totally zentangled but can be if you like.

    **Please keep these cards flat, flat, flat…no raised embellishments for this swap.**


    Please send in your very best work...no sloppy, half-hearted cards...only cards you would love, love, love to receive need be sent in.

    Please make sure your ATCs for All name is on the back of your cards EXACTLY how it is on the forum so those who receive your cards can give you rep points.

    This swap as a no sign up swap. Your name will be added to the list when your cards arrive.


    Cards that arrive on or before February 15 will be swapped out.
    Cards that arrive after February 15 will be returned.


    Host requests:
    Please DO NOT send envelopes. (I will provide them)
    Please DO send loose postage, not envelopes with postage already attached.
    Please keep your cards FLAT...no raised embellishments for this one.
    Thank you!!


    Creative Plan:
    Please submit only your best, most creative work.
    Card size must be ATC standard - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
    All cards need to be sent in a plastic sleeves or some sort of protection in case your envelope is damaged or gets wet on the way to me.
    Originals only, no prints of previous work.

    Please feel free to post your cards to the thread and comment on other artists' cards.


    If you have questions about your cards, please send me a pm or ask in the thread.
    PM me when you are ready for my address.

    Awesome Returns:

    All players: Please do not send envelopes. I will provide them. Please do send a label/paper with your name and address clearly printed on it.

    US players: Please do send loose postage to cover your returns. An extra stamp is always appreciated to help cover international postage players, but it's not required. Please do NOT send envelopes with postage already attached.

    International players:
    I'll cover the postage for your returns.

    Gracious Gratitude:
    Please make sure your real name, swap title, and screen name are on the back of your cards so others can leave you rep points.

    Once you receive your return cards, please remember to leave iTrader for me and Rep points for the folks whose cards you were honored to receive. I will leave iTrader for each of you as soon as I receive your cards.


    Thank you for playing in this swap!

    I am going to give this one a try. The zentangles are the easy art, the mermaid is a bit more difficult.

    Awesome! Wil, no worries...the mermaid can be realistic, whimsical, abstract-ish...anything you like. It can have a face or be faceless. Anything you like!

    I'll try to make some cards for that I love to make zentangles.

    Would something in this style with a mermaid silhouette on zentangle background fit the prompt: http://www.atcsforall.com/forum/gall...x.php?n=266494

    No worries! I have faith in all you fabulous artists! Think about sketching out your mermaid then using zentangles for the tail... or zentangle seaweed plants into the scene...let your imagination run wild!
