    HandDrawn/HPainted & Decorated Letter ATCs D, E & F - Due January 20th 2018

    Swap Due Date – 20th January
    Signup/withdraw date – none – just communicate
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants - unlimited
    Media – Hand Drawn/Hand Painted– no embellishments please (but a little touch of glitter glue is acceptable).

    This is a continuation of our series of swaps and we can hopefully collect a whole alphabet of beautifully decorated letters. Don’t worry if you missed the first swap, I am sure you will find a few As Bs and Cs in the galleries of folk who did join (including me). Make them simple or ornate, highly coloured, monochrome, or shades of grey. Illustrate with things starting with the letter (ie F illustrated with a fish) or on their own. As long as the letter is the main focus of the card, let your muse move you. Spend a few minutes on google and you’ll be hooked, I promise! So much to choose from; Zentangled letters, and letters with dangles; old manuscripts and illuminated letters; I always keep a few in hand to use on birthday cards etc.

    The cards
    -Each card must be ATC size, exactly 2.5" x 3.5" and on a sturdy base (cardstock, bristol, heavy watercolor paper, chipboard), and sent in its own plastic sleeve.
    - Send work into which you put time, imagination and care, and would be happy to receive! I will trade effort for effort so make them your best effort.
    - Each card must be original, no copies please.
    - Label all cards with at least your real name, AFA username, date, location and name of the swap. A host card is not required but will be a very treasured addition to my growing collection.

    Postage/Mailing:
    When taping the cards together, just a little washi tape works great to keep them in place when mailing (don’t use ordinary masking tape – it’s a nightmare and ruins the plastic sleeves). Please post in this thread when you are sending your cards out. Some pictures of your efforts would be great inspiration for those still ‘lurking’.

    US Players: please send a well concealed $1 in with your cards.
    Other International Players: Please send $1 in your envelope if you have them. Failing that PM me for paypal details.
    Include a large address label with your address neatly printed. I will provide envelopes.
    Please PM me for my address when you are ready to send your cards.

    Make sure you allow your cards enough mailing time to get to me, late cards will be returned to the artist, unswapped, at their expense. Lack of communication and lack of ATCs will result in Neutral iTrader given. We all understand when life throws unexpected things at us, so please, please communicate.
    Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave an iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from – It is always nice to tell the player which card you received too. This is optional, but a nice way to say thank you. We all need a little encouragement.

    Please write your username and Swap Name on the back of your envelopes.
    I will leave iTrader for each player as I receive their cards.
    We love eye candy, so do post photos of your cards to the thread for us all to admire.

    Sorry Firefly, Donnacr and CiCiCreates. I was obviously more distracted (and exhausted) than I thought. Welcome all. I have added you and think the list is now up to date.

    Wow Ann, hope you can rest your knees. My son used to lay floors for a living and it really killed his knees at a young age. But at least yours is over and you get a new bedroom!
