    HAUNTED HOUSES - House Shaped ATC Swap, due October 17, 2019

    Swap Due Date: October 17, 2019
    Signup/Withdraw Date: October 17, 2019
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: Any and all media and techniques are welcome

    HAUNTED HOUSES - House Shaped ATC Swap, Due October 17, 2019


    This ATC SWAP is for a HOUSE SHAPE with a HALLOWEEN or HAUNTED theme.
    This means Haunted Houses, Creepy Condominiums, Ghostly Houses, Spooky Skyscrapers, Witches' Warrens, All Scary Houses. But you need a house-shaped design, and a 2 1/2"x 3 1/2" ATC size.

    As you create your little HOUSES, use your imagination and be creative! You can use any combination of colors, and inhabitants. Draw or paint. If you wish, add postage stamps, rubber stamping, magazine images, scrapbook papers. You decide!




    * This is a 3 for 3 or 6 for 6 card trade. Make 3 or 6 cards and receive the same number back.

    * ALL mediums and techniques are welcome. Please make sure you add some depth to your cards, whatever style you choose. Your mediums can include, but are not limited to: paper, tissue paper, crayon, acrylic, watercolor, gel pens, colored pencil, rubber stamping, ink, newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, etc. Please do not take an image, cut it out, glue it onto cardstock, and call it done. Color the background. Add some texture. Add more than one image. Make the ATC YOUR CREATION! I do ask that you send in your best work. Something you would not be disappointed in receiving if it was sent to you.

    * Please sign up by posting to this thread.
    * ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
    * All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve for their own protection.
    * All ATCs must be a cut out HOUSE SHAPE that is 2.5” wide x 3.5” tall.
    * All cards need to be sturdy enough to earn the name “card” (no floppy or flimsy paper). If it is created on a single sheet of paper, and "flimsy", please back your ATC with something stiffer, or more firm, such as a cereal box.
    * Just as important, check for cards that are too thick. Each card must still be capable of fitting into the standard ATC sleeve. If your ATC will not fit into an ATC sleeve, it is too bulky.
    * Please put the Swap name and your Username on the back of all cards. And please write clearly on everything!
    .....We can't give you itrades and/or You Rock! points if we don't know who you are.
    * Please confirm there is enough postage on the envelope.
    .....Please check both the envelope you send to me, and the envelope I need to send back to you.
    * If you are unsure about mailing ATCs, or just may want to pick up some good tips for shipping, here is a great link.
    http://atcsforall.com/forum/showthread.php?t=909

    * If you are inside the U.S., please include a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches, with 55 cents postage, or one "Forever" stamp if trading 3 cards; or one forever and one 15 cent stamp (additional ounce postage) if trading 6 cards, OR if your cards are extra heavy or extra bulky (or 2 forever stamps if that is easier).

    * International participants, if you have U.S. funds, or U.S. postage, it is greatly appreciated. However, since many of you do not have access to U.S. stamps, I will cover your postage. Please include a self addressed envelope 4 by 9 1/2 inches (10 x 28 cm), or if you do not have the correct size envelope, please include a large mailing label with your address and I will provide the envelope.

    * I apologize for being so demanding about the envelope size, but the postal rates in the US charge extra for thickness. When cards are stacked, or overlapped, in (a smaller) envelope, it almost always costs more to mail. If you send me a small envy, the cards get stacked. When I use the 4 inch by 9 1/2 inch business size envelopes, I can spread the cards over the area, making a THIN package, and only pay for basic (minimum) postage.

    * Cards are due IN MY HANDS by October 17, 2019. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in on time, and often early.

    * A hostie card in this theme is appreciated but not at all expected!

    * Thank you for considering this swap! If you have my address from previous swaps, it hasn't changed. If you are new, or have not been in one of my swaps for a while, please ask for my address when you are ready to mail.

    * Above all ~Have fun!!!

    I think I ended up bailing on this one last year, so I hope to come up with something this year. I'm going to lurk for now and try to get cards that I'm happy with.

    I am interested, but not committing until I see how my time goes. I am back home in early September, so there should be plenty of time, but...

    Anyway, for the moment, I will just lurk spookily with intent...

    Here's one I painted last night. I've been wanting to paint a house-shaped ATC and I finally did it! Not sure if it'll end up in my contributions to the swap (depends on how many I end up painting -- if a ton, as often happens, this may not make the cut) The purple is just the paper I put it on to photograph it, and I may end up painting a few bats or something else. Not sure. Any ideas?

    Not all houses are the typical "House Shape" with a pointed roof, and a chimney
    Some houses have towers, multiple roof-lines, bats, cats, or full moons in the background
