    Lightbulb Mushroom Girls, HandDrawn/HandPainted or open media ~ April 15

    Swap due date/withdrawal date - April 15
    Signup date - April 13
    Number of cards - 3:3 (or 6:6 if you join both groups)
    Participants - unlimited
    Medium - Hand drawn/painted OR open media (no digital/prints)



    Mushroom Girls

    This swap is for mushrooms and girls in beautiful and strange harmony.


    Mushroom Girl Guidelines:

    • Each card needs to have at least one mushroom and at least one girl/woman.
    • How exactly the mushroom and girl combine is up to you! You could do a girl sitting on some mushrooms, a girl with a mushroom head, a half-girl/half-mushroom character, a girl in a mushroom house, a girl with a mushroom umbrella or hat or dress, a girl sprouting mushrooms all over her body, etc etc. Weird combinations encouraged! (But simpler/cuter combinations are also wonderful!) I've posted some inspiration art below.
    • Any type of weird fungus is ok for the "mushroom" portion, you don't need to stick to the classic red with white spots mushroom.
    • Full or partial nudity is fine as long as it's not porn-y. If you'd prefer not to receive cards with nudity, just add a note with your cards to let me know.
    • No plain white backgrounds - add a bit of background detail, even if it's just a basic wash of colour.



    Card Guidelines:
    • Cards must be either entirely hand-drawn/painted OR any media (no digital/prints). Specify which group you'd like to join when you sign up. You can join both groups if you want to.
    • On the back of the card, add both your username and real name (please include both! It makes the swapping/rating process much less complicated).
    • Make sure your cards are 2.5" x 3.5", and are made from sturdy paper. (If you can easily bend it into a "U", it's too floppy.)
    • As always, I'll do my best to swap effort for effort.
    • Host cards are very appreciated but never necessary!



    Mailing:

    • Please PM me for my address when you're ready to mail your cards. I have moved since my last swap, so please make sure to get my updated address!
    • 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 mail at least 2 weeks before the deadline if you're outside Canada.
    • 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.
    • Include a large, clearly written address label with your address, including your country. (You can send an envelope if you prefer, but don't attach postage to it unless it's Canadian postage.)
    • Important note about returns: mail from Canada typically takes about 2 weeks to arrive internationally (which includes mail to the USA). It can occasionally take significantly longer, more like 4-6 weeks - if you join the swap, make sure you're prepared for that possibility! The cards will still arrive safely despite any delays. Just post to the thread so I know to keep it open.



    Postage:

    • Canada: include a permanent domestic stamp.
    • USA: if at all possible, please use Paypal to send $2. If that isn't an option, you can include a global forever stamp - the round one that looks like a succulent. (I can use these in other swaps.) Please don't send any other type of postage (eg domestic stamps or mitered postage). Don't attach your stamp to an envelope!
    • International: if at all possible, please use Paypal to send $3. If that isn't an option, a USA global forever stamp works (I can use these in other swaps). If neither of these options works for you, 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!

    Once you've receive your returns, remember to leave iTrader for the host (that's me!) and "You Rock"s for your swap partners. If you're new to swapping on AFA, I'm happy to explain how this works.
