    Modern Witches, HandDrawn/HandPainted, July 19

    Swap due date - July 19
    Signup date - July 12
    Withdraw date - July 19
    Number of cards - 3 for 3
    Participants - 30 (it's my third swap!)
    Medium - Hand drawn/hand painted

    Modern Witches

    What do witches look like today ? What sorts of spells would modern witches do? Do witches and technology mix (can you do spells over the internet)? Let's bring that magical witchy goodness into the present and make some cards with modern witches!

    You can interpret this however you want, but each card needs to have a witchy character that's recognizably "modern" - whether that shows up in how they're dressed, what they're doing, etc, is up to you! I'm counting anything from the last 50ish years as "modern" so you could do an 80s or 90s witch if you want to. Futuristic witches are great too!

    "This kind of precision over that much distance hadn't been possible only a few years ago, but Google Street View was an absolute boon to the art and craft of creating long-distance portals" - The Magician King, Lev Grossman

    Card Guidelines:

    • Each card needs to have a modern witch!
    • Cards must be entirely hand-drawn and/or hand-painted.
    • On the back of the card, add your card's title, your username, real name, swap name, date, and any other info you want to include (maybe a little bio of your witch?)
    • Make sure your cards are 2.5" x 3.5", and are made from sturdy paper.
    • Host cards are very appreciated but never necessary.



    Mailing:

    1. Please PM me for my address when you're ready to mail your cards. I live in Canada, so give your cards plenty of time to arrive - most mail from the USA takes about business 5 days, but it occasionally takes longer. To be safe, it's best to send about 2 weeks before the deadline.
    2. Put each of your cards in a plastic sleeve and secure them inside the envelope, either by taping them together or taping them to a card/piece of paper.
    3. Tell me your username and which swap this is for - include a note or write on the back of the envelope.
    4. Include a large, clearly written address label with your address. (You can send an envelope if you prefer, but don't attach postage to it unless it's Canadian postage.)
    5. Include return postage.



    Postage:

    • Canada: include a permanent domestic stamp.
    • USA: include a global forever stamp - the round one that looks like a moon or a succulent. (I can use these in other swaps.) Please don't send any other type of postage (eg domestic stamps or mitered postage). Paypal is also an option.
    • International: Paypal me $2.65 for postage using "family and friends" method. If Paypal isn't an option, PM me and we can figure out something else.

    Confused about postage? Please PM me or post in the thread!


    When you've finished your cards, post them to the thread to show them off! If you need some inspiration, just post for suggestions. I've added some modern witch art in a comment later as well - just scroll down!


    Once you've receive your cards, remember to leave iTrader for the host (that's me!) and "You Rock"s for your swap partners.
