We are nearing the end of the 7 deadly sins! Only 2 more to go and then I will host a make up swap.
This one is Envy. As defined by wikipedia: EnvyMain article: Envy Like greed, Envy (Latin, invidia) may be characterized by an insatiable desire; they differ, however, for two main reasons:
First, greed is largely associated with material goods, whereas envy may apply more generally. Second, those who commit the sin of envy resent that another person has something they perceive themselves as lacking, and wish the other person to be deprived of it. Dante defined this as "a desire to deprive other men of theirs." Envy can be directly related to the Ten Commandments, specifically "Neither shall you desire... anything that belongs to your neighbour". In Dante's Purgatory, the punishment for the envious is to have their eyes sewn shut with wire because they have gained sinful pleasure from seeing others brought low. Aquinas described envy as "sorrow for another's good".
Hope that helps.
You will send 1 ATC to 1 Parnter. Newbies welcome. Low ratings will be approved upon messging me. No recent 1's please. I have had a few problems with some of these 7 sins swaps and all this Angeling is making me broke!
For you newbies who are also wondering what an ATC is my friends at Wikipedia can define that as well: Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards, or 2 Â½ X 3 Â½ inches (63 mm X 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets. The ATC movement developed out of the mail art movement and has its origins in Switzerland. Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are usually traded or exchanged rather than sold.
Please be sturdy, any medium and something you are proud to send and receive. If you make somethng really cool and put it on your flickr page feel free to PM me the link. I love seeing my swaps come to life.
I will Angel, comment with questions so everyone may see.
Thank you! Happy Swapping :)
