Abstract Art - Black, Gray, & White, Due March 7

Swap Due Date: Cards need to be in my hands no later than March 7
Signup/withdraw Date: No sign ups or withdraws ...just send in your cards on time if you want to play!
Number of Cards: 3 for 3 only
Number of Participants: Unlimited
Medium: Any
Abstract Art – Black, Gray, and White



Since all swaps/hosts have different guidelines and requests, I respectfully ask that you take a moment and read my guidelines for this swap. Thank you!

Abstracts are fantastic! The first three abstract swaps have been fantastic. Let's go with BLACK, GRAY, & WHITE for this one.

For this swap, please make Abstract ATCs in any medium with all three colors (black, gray, white) on them. You may use a SMALL amount of an additional accent color to make your card really pop if you like. Please be sure the extra color is just an accent and just a tiny part of the card.

Abstract art - "Art that does not attempt to represent external, recognizable reality but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures"

This swap as a no sign up swap. Your name will be added to the list when your cards arrive.

Cards that arrive on or before March 7 will be swapped out.
Cards that arrive after March 7 will be returned.

Host requests:
Please DO NOT send envelopes. (I will provide them)
Please DO send loose postage, not envelopes with postage already attached.
Please DO NOT use raised embellishments.
Thank you!!


Creative Plan:

Please submit only your best, most creative work.
Card size must be ATC standard - 2.5 x 3.5 inches.
All cards need to be sent in a plastic sleeves or some sort of protection in case your envelope is damaged on the way to me.
Originals only, no prints of previous work.
Flat embellishments only. What I am trying to avoid are the raised embellishments, gemstone type stick-ons, pointed things that can tear an envelope, heavy or thick pieces. Other flat types are ok.
Cards with raised embellishments will be returned. When in doubt, please ask!

Feel free to post your cards to the thread, we'd love to see them!
If you have questions about your cards, please send me a pm or ask in the thread.
PM me when you are ready for my address.

Awesome Returns:

All players: Please do not send envelopes. I will provide them. Please do send a label/paper with your name and address clearly printed on it.

US players: Please do send loose postage to cover your returns. An extra stamp is always appreciated to help cover international postage players, but it's not required. Please do NOT send envelopes with postage already attached.

International players:
I'll cover the postage for your returns.


Gracious Gratitude:

Please make sure your real name, swap title, and screen name are on the back of your cards so others can leave you rep points.

Once you receive your return cards, please remember to leave iTrader for me and Rep points for the folks whose cards you were honored to receive. I will leave iTrader for each of you as soon as I receive your cards.

Thank you so much for participating in my swap!

Abstract intrigues me. Since there's no sign up, I'm not signing up. But I'm putting it in my notebook...

You'll definitely be getting some from me; this will be my third abstract swap, and they are a blast for stretching the mind beyond its norm!
