    Skulls and Skeletons Swap, Open Media ~ Date Due: October 11, 2019

    ATC Swap Due Date: October 11, 2019
    Signup/Withdraw Date: October 11, 2019
    Number of ATCs: 3 for 3 or 6 for 6
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Media: Any and all mediums and techniques are welcome

    Skulls and Skeletons Swap, Open Media ~ Date Due: October 11, 2019


    RETURNS MAILED 10/15



    In this swap, each card must contain a skull or a skeleton, in any style, or any medium. Please do not send cards depicting Dia de los Muertos (the Day of the Dead) since skulls and skeletons have a different focus than Day of the Dead, plus there are several other swaps out there for Dia de los Muertos specifically and I don't want to compete/duplicate the swaps of other hosts.

    You can depict skulls and/or skeletons of any critter or creature, real or fantasy.
    Humorous, whimsical, realistic or naturalistic, long dead dinosaurs, mermaid myths and dragon legends…all are fine.
    I saw some llama skeleton stamps in Michael's the other day (a first for me)
    Show off your talents. Send work into which you put time, imagination and care.


    * 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 to a card, 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. I will acknowledge you and add your user name to the participant list below.
    * ONLY ATCs allowed. No APCs accepted.
    * All cards need to be sent each in their own plastic sleeve.
    * All cards need to be standard ATC size: 2.5” x 3.5”
    * 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 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 11, 2019. Please allow sufficient lead time for cards to get to me, particularly if you are an International participant. Returns will be mailed promptly. Late cards will be returned, as it is unfair to those participants who always have their cards in early or on time.

    * 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, I’ll PM you with my address when you sign up!

    * Above all ~Have fun!!!

    Think things that go bump in the night, or skulls with red leering eyes, or skeletons that dance in the wind.
    Think wild or whimsical

    Dragons, dinosaurs, unicorns, and Pegasus also can be skeletons and/or skulls.
    I am seeing Puffer fish skeletons,and Llamas and crow and frog skeletons.
    Any and all skeletons are great.
    I am working on a dragon skeleton.....with wings that move!

    How exciting.
    I just got a "grab bag" of stamps for a nickel, and apparently skeletons are NOT popular.
    In my baggie I have a dragon skeleton, a Pegasus skeleton, a mermaid skeleton, so far...........
