    Water in Watercolor, Due July 19, 2020

    The Prang Challenge Due July 19, 2020

    Swap Due Date -Due July 19, 2020
    Signup/withdraw date - None - just communicate
    Number of Cards - 3 for 3
    Number of participants - unlimited
    Medium - watercolors

    Theme: Paint any type of water with watercolor. I'm personally missing the beach, but all interpretations of water are welcome! Glass of water, lake, stream, rain? As long as there is water!

    I usually update the lists and do maintenance on (or by) Saturday. Don't worry if I don't see a message/post right away.

    Rules:
    Original artwork only! Do your BEST work! No stamps, stickers, etc. Must be watercolor! Please finish your backgrounds too. Ink outlines and opaque white paint/gel pens as accents are fine.

    --Make your cards sturdy but not rigid. They should be more than a flimsy piece of paper, so be sure to put on a backing if necessary. Think of a playing card or a baseball trading card for an example of how thick a card should be. Please also be careful not to make your cards too thick b/c they get stuck in mail machines.

    --ATCs are 2.5x3.5” rectangles. Poorly cut cards (examples: crooked or uneven sides) and cards of the wrong size will be returned.
    -- Put your screenname and swap title on the back of your cards.
    --Protect your ATCs in sleeves or plastic baggies.
    --Communicate if you must withdraw. It's no big deal - just let me know!
    --Extra cards as host gifts are always, always appreciated, but never required!

    Mailing Directions:
    * Send me a PM when you are ready to mail and I will send you my address.
    *US PLAYERS: Send enough loose postage to mail your returns and an address label. Extra postage is welcome if you'd like to sponsor internationals.
    *I will provide envelopes. If you do not have address labels, just PM me your address when you’re ready to mail, and I’ll print your address directly on the return envelope.
    *Internationals - Please join us! No need to send postage unless you want to. I'll provide envelope if you will just provide a return label.
    *Don’t tape the daylights out of your cards! A little tape goes a long way. Avoid excess packaging b/c this increases the price of mailing.

    Remember: I PROVIDE ENVELOPES.

    *Put your screenname and swap title on your envelope and your ATCs.

    Players - when you receive your cards for the swap, remember to leave iTrader for the Host (me) and Rep Points for the people you received cards from! I will be leaving iTrader as cards come in.

    I'm going to lurk on this one for now - I usually like to get them done before officially signing up. I've taken so many photos of beaches, lakes, and waterfalls that I've got a lot of inspiration! And yes, I'm really missing visiting the water now - I can see the Coastal Range of mountains from my kitchen window and it stands between me and the Oregon coast, a 2-hour drive. I so wish I were over there, or up visiting Crater Lake 90-minutes away in the Cascades. And, oh! To be gazing at the spring run-off coming over the mountains in gorgeous waterfalls and emphemerals in Yosemite right now! I truly envy the folks who are living in quarantine there! Can you imagine how stunning that solitude is?!

    Hey, glad to see you back, Ethereal!
    Just passing through the forums page and saw your name pop up.
    Missed you!
    I'm not good on water, so I may pass on this. But I'll think about it, lol.
    Be anxious for nothing, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.

    I would love to join. I am in the UK, but American originally, so may have some cash around still. I will send some if I can track it down.

    I love watercolours and water, so this sounds fab!

    Don't worry if you can't find it. I've got a lot of forever international stamps that I need to use up
