    Hand drawn/hand painted USK tip-in swap- Open theme due March 8th

    Swap Due Date -8th March
    Signup/withdraw date - none but please keep me informed.
    Number of Cards - 2 for 2, 3 for 3 or 4 for 4 (if we get a minimum of x4 players excluding me).
    Number of participants - Unlimited

    Tip-ins are 3 3/4 inches wide by 5 3/4inches tall and vertically orientated. They are sized and orientated this way to fit into an urban sketchbook or USK for short. You can choose to put your tip-ins in a USK for display or alternatively display however you wish.

    Here is a link for newbies to explain the concept a bit better http://gomakesomething.com/ht/ab/tip-ins/ the size we are working on is 3 3/4 inches wide by 5 3/4inches tall and vertically orientated. Essentially we are making book pages.

    This swap is open theme but please avoid anything controversial eg- sexual or violence etc, and no religion.
    Hand drawn/handpainted subjects please, not abstract paintings.

    Tip-in Rules-
    1. Hand drawn or /hand painted only. You can use glitter/sparkle pens, but make sure there is no loose glitter. No collage or embellishments allowed for this swap.
    2. Cards must be fully coloured, no white backgrounds.
    3. Cards must be 3 3/4 inches wide by 5 3/4inches tall and vertically orientated with straight edges, please make sure that they are neither too flimsy, or extra thick. Please check and carefully measure your cards before sending.
    4. Please include your username and real name on the back of your tip-ins along with any other info you wish to add.
    5. Host cards will be treasured should you wish to include one but are not required to participate.
    6. Where possible I will exchange effort for effort to the best of my ability and dependant on cards received.

    Postage info
    1. The due date is 8th March. Please be mindful that I am in the UK so allow plenty of time for posting to me. Any late tip-ins will be returned to senders. I intend to swap out promptly after due date.
    2. Please pm me when you are ready for my address to send.
    3. Please package your tip-ins carefully to ensure they reach me undamaged, and send in individual plastic sleeves or similar protective covering.
    I will need a large return address label or piece of paper with your address on it, but 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 for 1-2 tip-ins, or $3 for 2-4 tip-ins alternatively contact me to pay via paypal.

    I will no longer be sending back returns at my own expense for players who forget to pay, or do not send enough for their returns. If you have multiple returns for more than one of my swaps and want them sending together please discuss with me in advance so I can advise you on the correct price. Thank you for understanding.

    I'm curious - what is a tip-in? It sounds interesting but I've never heard of it. Thanks!

    I am interested in this one, sounds like a nice size to work on. I am just wondering if there is a limit to the weight of paper/card used? Is 300gsm too heavy, would 210 be better?

    Thanks BexMadeMe. This really looks interesting. I need to pass for now as I am involved in quite a few swaps and don't want to spread myself too thin but I might be interested in the future. Love new things!!

    Lets see your tip-ins!

    Also we need one more player to make a 4:4 swap feasible, anyone?

    I'm interested in this and have started sketching out a few tip-ins, but I want to make sure I finish them with enough time to send before I commit. I'll let you know, though!
