    Red face Black and White (and RED allover) Animals, Due OCT 18th, 2019

    Swap DUE date: OCT 18th, 2019
    Number of participants: 27
    Cards 3:3 or 5:5
    Media: Open Media


    Theme: black and white animals with some red on the card somewhere, Not all over, just a little will do. I like the joke what is black and white and red all over? A zebra/penguin with a sunburn. haha

    Animals that come to mind, Zebras, penguins, pandas, orcas, skunks, some monkeys, some birds (magpies, woodpeckers), some dogs (Dalmatians), Holstein cows,some cats, some butterflies, some fish. , white tiger, snow leopard *insert your animal idea here. Animals need to be black and white, naturally. Not just animals we are creating in black and white mediums. Realistic or Whimsical themes are welcomed.

Or should the red be confined to the background or naturally occurring redness? Also are red accessories on animals acceptable or are we going for strict realism?

    ANSWER
    That is what I was kinda of thinking and expecting. a red heart, a red crown, a red flower a red bow, etc.
    I was not thinking too realistic, at all.

    *****Please skip spiders and snakes, as "that is not what it takes to love me"... sing along. I personally have no fear, but don't want to scare other players, who have true phobias of spiders and snakes.

    Open media, Zentangles, collage, hand drawn, mixed media, and even photography. I will do my best to trade media for media and style for style, animal for animal.

    ABOUT THE CARDS

    *Each card must be ATC size, 2.5" x 3.5" inches and on a sturdy base.
    * All cards should be sent in plastic sleeves or a 3 by 3 card protector.
    * All cards must be original works not reprints or copies.
    * Each card does not need to be different, but can be if you choose that route. You can make 3 or 5 the same if you want, no one will shame you. You can do different animals or all the same animals.
    * The back of your card needs your name, and AFA user name, Please add the swap name to the back as well. You an abbreviate the swap name BLACK, WHITE RED animals, add the year, 2019.
    *Stickers are allowed as a small embellishment only. Please don’t make it your main focus.

    I really appreciate your list of black and white animals, it is helpful when trying to figure images for the cards. Here are some others. Holstein cows, Dalmatians, magpies....still thinking of more....

    CastleQueen,
    You said you plan to mail all USA envelopes as Non Machinable. This will cost you 15 cents. Worth every penny. Despite the extra effort sometimes these do get sent through a machine. But still worth the 15 cents and my time in line.

    How do you do that?
    My post office charges 21 cents for Non Machinable.
