    Frida Kahlo HandDrawn/HandPainted due June 21st

    Swap Due Date -21st June
    Signup/withdraw date - none but please keep me informed.
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants - Unlimited


    As most of you probably know Frida was the famous Mexican painter mostly known for her self portraits.
    I have recently started to collect hand drawn/hand painted Frida Kahlo inspired ATCs and would love to add more to my collection. I hope some of you will join me.

    For this swap cards must have a Frida character as the main focus. Your Frida drawings can be whimsical or realistic you choose. As long as we recognise her as Frida.

    Card Rules-
    1. All cards must be hand drawn or hand painted, embellishments/mixed media are allowed BUT the main character and the majority of the elements must be hand drawn (50-75% handdrawn). You could choose to add a collage background for example. Please do not add bulky embellishments as this adds to the postage cost.
    2. Cards must be correctly sized with straight edges 2.5 x 3.5 inches, make sure that they are neither flimsy, or extra thick. Please check and measure your cards before sending, (it is harder to rectify these problems after I have received your cards).
    3. Cards must be fully coloured (no white backgrounds)
    4. Please include your username, real name and the swap name on the back of your cards along with any other info you wish to add.
    5. Host cards are not required but will be treasured should you wish to include one.
    6. Where possible I will exchange effort for effort and like for like cards to the best of my ability and dependant on cards received.

    Postage info
    1. The due date is 21st June. Please be mindful that I am in the UK so allow plenty of time for posting to me. Any late cards will be returned to senders.
    2. Please pm me when you are ready for my address to send your cards.
    3. Please package your cards carefully to ensure they reach me undamaged, and send in individual plastic ATC sleeves. I will need a large return address label or piece of paper with your address on it, I will supply my own envelopes.
    4. UK players please send either a first or second class stamp for return postage.
    International players please send either $2 USA or contact me to pay via paypal.

    Here are my cards for the swap. I wanted to make them colourful.

    Lurking - never done a hd/hp ATC before, so this would be challenging...but I did attend art school eons ago and used to be good at drawing (although I haven't done anything like that in a few decades)...still, tempted...

    Lurking. Bexmademe, your examples are very nice. Frida is always a great theme.
