    Flowers - NOT hand-drawn or hand painted Due: December 2

    Due Date: December 2nd
    postage date for non-Australians: November 11th
    I live in Australia - mail will NOT reach me quickly! I normally allow 3 weeks when mailing my swaps to anywhere else in the world - I suggest that you do the same.
    cards: 3 for 3
    participants: unlimited

    RETURNS MAILED - DECEMBER 5


    I am not a person who can draw or paint and have people recognise what I have tried to show. This is the swap for anyone who feels similarly challenged.
    Flowers can be realistic or stylised, they can be: collaged, cross-stitched, origami, quilted, made from buttons, punched/ die cut, stamped, made from napkins and beeswax, iris folded, embossed or any other style or technique that you can think of but they can NOT be simply drawn or painted.

    quilled stitched die cut and embossed paper tole/3D cut and fold with brads
    These are all examples from my current Gallery.


    My plan is NOT to give you back a technique that you have used (hopefully there will be a large enough variety to allow for this) - if you REALLY only want to receive the techniques that you have used please tell me and I will try to accomodate you.

    Due date:
    Cards are to be in my hands by Dec 2nd. I will mail your return cards as soon as possible, but remember, it took up to 3 weeks to reach me so they will take up to 3 weeks to reach you. Please be on time so others don't have to wait.

    Postage:
    Australian players - please include a stamp equivalent to your postage
    International players - a well hidden US$1 bill.

    ALL players please include a LARGE address label (AT LEAST 2" x2"), I will provide envelopes and Australian postage



    1. Do your best work - I plan to swap like-for-like, as much as I can. You will probably not receive cards using the same technique as those that you submitted as I intend to mix the returns.

    2。Clearly write your USERNAME and the SWAP NAME on the back of all your cards (so you can get fun rep points) and on the back of your mailing envelope. I am running a few swaps and do not want to put you with the wrong returns.

    3. Please mail early to allow time to reach Australia.

    4. An extra card for the swap host (in line with the swap theme) is greatly appreciated but is not required.

    5. Embellishments are fine. The completed card needs to fit into standard pockets and the embellishments need to be securely fastened so they don't fall off during shipping. If it is too bulky it is more than likely that the card may not reach me - either because the envelope has been torn and the card lost, or it is too heavy.

    6. Have fun!!

    7. I will give iTrader feedback when 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 to me when you receive your swap returns, and Rep points for the artists whose cards you receive. After all, knowing where your cards went is half the fun I think.

    Lurking. I'd like to do this (being someone else who can't really draw/paint!) but not sure about my time...

    katelnorth - welcome to my very comfy lurkers' couch. I understand time constraints but there are nearly 5 weeks before the mail by date - you know you can fit in 3 cards in that time. . .hopeful nudge, wink, wink
