    Lightbulb FLORISTS ~ due Jan 22

    Due Date: January 22, 2021
    Withdraw by Date: January 15, 2021
    Number of Cards: 3 for 3
    Number of Participants: Unlimited
    Medium: Open Media

    Theme: Florists
    Create three original artist trading cards showing a character on each card interacting with flowers. All types of characters are welcome, use your imagination on the type of character you would like to portray (it can be a person, animal, or fantasy character). If you are doing mixed media, consider the materials you might use to convey the flower(s) including but not limited to: ephemera, image cut-outs, stencils, rubber stamps, rub-ons, washis, etc.

    Required: each card must show at least one character (the “florist”) and feature at least one flower (more flowers are encouraged!).

    Details
    • Send 3 original designed artist trading cards (measuring 2.5” x 3.5”)
    • A 4th “hostie” artist trading card would be greatly appreciated but is not required
    • Add on the back of each card: your real name, username, date, city/state or country, swap name
    • YES: include at least 1 character and 1 flower per ATC
    • NO: prints, digital, white backgrounds
    • Upon receiving your cards, leave an iTrader for me, your host, and Reputation Points via this thread for the artists of the cards you receive

    Mailing
    • PM me for my address (if you mailed to me in the past, it is the same)
    • Send each card in individual sleeves
    • USA players: include 1 Forever stamp
    • International players: Send $1
    • Include an address label
    • I will provide envelopes

    Cheryl, my idea for the first card is a robin “florist” in the act of building a nest with little flowers on some of the stems. The nest is being made in a flowering vine, I plan to use as many flowers as I can. Just wanted to check if this is ok before I begin. It will be collage and HP.
