    ~~ Buddy Card Trading~~

    ~Buddy Cards (2 player cards, 2 artists)~
    Welcome to any artists who like to make art with more than one person.


    ~HOW TO TRADE.... Please Read~
    ~Player 1 starts it off by making 2 cards. On the back put AFA (HD or MM) Buddy Cards so we know where it came from and which technique group. Also your user name and return address.
    ~Post the cards in this thread and find someone who agrees to complete the starters.
    ~Set up the trade with this person and mail both cards to Player 2. These trades are each individual and there is no commitment for future trades so do not mail anything that has not been agreed to by both parties involved.

    ~Player 2 will complete both cards in technique agreed upon Hand Drawn only or Mixed Media. Many people do not want religious, Political, gory, sexual or adult topics. Communicate with your trade buddy before you use any of these. And then add user name to the back. They will keep 1 card and mail the other one back to Player 1.
    ~Both players give itraders when they complete the trade.

    All Cards

    ~ATCs need to be 2 1/2" x 3 1/2" an excellent way to mail sets is in a single row cut from a 9 pocket page. It not only keeps all the cards neat and together, it fits perfectly and stays flat in a legal size envelope.
    ~Other sizes are welcome too as long as the second artist is willing to work on sizes other than ATCs.
    ~~No gluing glitter is allowed since it can get messy for other players. You may use a glitter paint such as Stickles, which will not shed glitter.

    Hand Drawn / Painted Group
    ~"All additions to Hand Drawn/ Painted ATC must be [hand drawn, painted, marker or color pencil art. Additions can be HP/HD on another piece of paper, cut out, and glued to the ATC. Only HD/HD art is allowed, meaning no collage or gluing of pre-printed materials, and no stamping."
    ~Painted technique backgrounds are not allowed in Hand Drawn Group. A paint technique background is a random background usually done on larger paper and then cut into atcs. It does not include a painted background that represents something like a sunset, sky, land, mountains or water.

    Mixed Media/Collage Group
    ~ When starting a Mixed Media/ Collage Buddy set you need to do more than slap a piece of paper on a background. Please make interesting starters it will be easier to find someone who wants to complete the trade.
    ~Please do your best work, If you slap a sticker with an ugly white border onto a lovely mixed media background you probably will have trouble getting the first player to do another set with you later.

    Jams are not a part of this thread. Jams are when player 1 starts only one card it is passed to two or three other people to work on. Then mailed back to the first person who makes good quality copies for each person who worked on their card.

    Buddy Card Participants
    !) You do not have to be on these lists to participate from time to time.
    2) People on these lists are very actively participating (continuous players)
    3) NOTE even if you are listed here, each Budy set needs to be set up as a trade agreed upon by both artists.

    So, this means you post cards to the thread and wait until someone says to send them their way to finish?

    I think that's the way I will try it (esp. since I'm new to all this). So, when I start 2, I'll post a pic and see if I get a taker? and if I want to finish someone's, I'd PM/post them? would that be right? *I'd just rather be notified FIRST before someone just up and sends me cards - due to work schedule.

    Please put me on both lists for now!

    I'll just jump in with both feet, for the moment!
    My "MUSE" has taken an extended vacation!!!...

    Since all you gals are wonderful artists maybe also post what medium you are posting. Since I'm in both, I'll claim Cinlans cards if she doesn't mind.

    I'm still confused on this. I always make my own cards. That way when I screw up I am not out a ton of money. I don't see the difference in painting a technique onto 3 backgrounds or individual cards. So what you are saying is no painted background by the first person? You want it done like the other group? So the LAST person does the background? Just want to make sure I have that straight.

    starter cards

    That would be great Mace, I realized after I posted that I didn't say what kind of cards they were but since I was only in one group I figured you would figure it out.

    MACE, as I understand it, it's not allowed to send just background unless it represents a landscape or something similar. You can send a random background, if you add something to it like an object, person, animal, border, etc.

    Good Morning everyone. I am sorry I fell behind on updating the thread. I want everyone to know that you do not have to be on the list to participate. In this group it is perfectly fine to drop in and participate when the mood strickes like you would in a PIF thread. The only commitment is to complete a Complete trade you have agreed to.
    Pixi I wasn't sure if you want on the list now if you are not around much. You can still participate when you are here without being added. The list should be for people who want to be very active, so people can pm them if they need a buddy to complete a set.


    Natasha May you are correct. In the hand drawn/painted group you must have some sort of image on the starter. It perfectly fine to paint a background sunset or room or something for your buddy to add to. Random paint techniques are great in the MM group.

    I don't think excluding international players is allowed, BekaH. But the way these buddy cards are done is like a personal trade. Both parties need to agree on doing it, so nobody sends you cards without your knowledge. And unless you want to work on cards from an international player, you won't get any.
