    Beautiful Bettas- DUE July 27th

    Swap Due Date – July 27th, 2019
    Signup/withdraw Date – None; please just communicate
    Number of Cards - 3 : 3 or 6:6
    Number of Participants – 20
    Media: HD/HP
    Theme – Betta fish

    Betta fish are some of the most beautiful fish out there! I always find myself looking at them whenever I go to the pet store because they just swim so gracefully. I finally bit the bullet and bought one! I thought this would be an awesome swap idea for others who also love betta fish. You can make them as realistic or whimsical as you like!

    Card Guidelines:

    1. Each card must be a standard ATC size of 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
    2. Hand drawn or hand painted only for this swap
    3. As previously stated, each card must be in an individual plastic sleeve (please no connecting photo album sleeves without also including individual sleeves).
    4. Each card should be labeled with the swap name, your username, your real name, date of creation, and your location.
    5. Please color in the backgrounds off the card. No white backgrounds please.

    Mailing Guidelines:

    1. Please mail cards in a business sized envelope, spreading the cards over the space of the envelope.
    2. Tape your cards together or onto a sturdy background when mailing, using an easy-release tape such as painter’s tape or washi tape to avoid damaging cards.
    3. Please include a self-addressed, stamped envelope or a legible label and a loose, unused stamp for your return cards.
    4. If you are mailing from the U.S., one Forever stamp should cover the cost of returns unless you have chosen to add thick embellishments that make the mail non-machinable. In that case, please send as much extra postage as you had to add to mail to me.
    5. If you are mailing internationally, please provide a global "forever" stamp or a $1 bill for your returns. You may also send money to my PayPal account if desired.

    When you are ready to mail your cards, please private message me for my address.

    iTraders are given by me to all players on the same day that I swap the cards out. Please make sure to leave an iTrader in turn for your host (me!) when you receive your cards, and leave "you rocks" for your fellow players from whom you have received cards.

    Host cards are never a requirement to play, but I would definitely cherish any you send!

    So who wants to swim with me?

    Jo inspired me, and I had so much fun painting your betta fish for the PAT swap, that I had to do a set for this swap. All done and ready to go out in tomorrow's mail. I'll photograph them and post them in the swap gallery.
