    Unusual Winged Objects (choose your media group) - due June 29

    Swap Due Date – June 29, 2018
    Signup cutoff date – June 21, 2018
    Number of Cards - 3:3 (will consider opening to 6:6 if we get enough players)
    Number of participants – unlimited
    Media – HD/HP (Handdrawn/Handpainted) group or MM/Collage Group or Both - please read group descriptions for explanations of each media group

    Swapping will be done mostly effort by effort (where possible)

    All I ask is that you do not use loose glitter (jelli glitter pens or sakura pens are ok) or any chunky embellishments. They make things very difficult for me, I will return them. I don't like limiting someone's muse but I also don't like glitter all over my desk or mailing chunky cards.

    Unusual Winged Objects - With this swap, make 3 cards of any object that's not normally wingged then add some wings. Let's see how silly we can get!
    The more bizarre the better! Think lamps, houses, meatloaf, ants, silverware, etc...


    any questions? please feel free to ask

    Lets have fun with this!

    DON'T LEAVE YOUR BACKGROUNDS PLAIN WHITE make it colored or add details.

    Picky Details
    *Please measure and cut carefully. I will not accept anything that's more than and eighth of an inch off the correct size.
    *Your AFA username (at least) should be on the back of each one. It would be nice to add your location (country or state) and date as well, but it's up to you.
    *please protect your artwork in sleeves when you mail. (in case the mail lady neglects to close my mailbox all the way and it rains...) If you don't have any sleeves, plastic wrap works
    *Original artwork only please (don't photocopy or scan/print your work and send in the printed out artwork.)
    *late cards and/or a lack of a withdraw will result in a neutral. Please ensure you mail on time.

    Postage Requirements:

    US - clearly write or type your address in black or blue (not a pastel blue...lol) on a mailing label or piece of paper, your address should be at least 1" x 2" - please do not send envelopes! I prefer using my own envelopes.
    (no return address labels, they're too small)
    Please include one .50 (forever) stamp (.71 or 2 forever stamps for collage please - I will return unneeded postage unless told otherwise)
    I can also accept Paypal if you prefer that route. PM for Paypal details.

    International - clearly write or type your address on a mailing label or piece of paper - I will provide envelopes
    please include $1 USD or US Stamp equivalent, Paypal or your own country's postage equivalent for that weight
    (I love international postage and can sometimes use them for international swaps but please don't send me cancelled stamps... those can't be used for international swaps lol)

    Please PM me for my address when you are ready to mail. If you post your request for my addy in the thread, I will not see it right away.
    I'm still in Dix, IL if you have my addy from a previous swap, but please let me know that you've mailed!

    When you receive your returns for the swap, please remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) so I know you're returns have arrived and you rock (rep points) for each card you receive.


    please feel free to post pictures of your cards when you are finished!

    I would live to join. I'd like MM/COLLAGE. No digital please, I am a collage fan, I love to see what people come up with. I'd love to do HD/HP, but I'm a lousy drawer and wouldn't be able to draw something in return, so I'll stick with collage. Thanks!
    - Looking for inspiration and found it right here......
