The first two of these were a lot of fun and it has been a while, so I'm hosting another round of it!
-Be sure to read the entire description before signing up!-
For this swap you will be sending one ATC to each of your twenty partners. It's a lot of work but the cards are sender's choice so you can send ones you already have made or make your cards ahead of time. All media are welcome.
HOWEVER, here's the catch! At least one significant element of your cards must be uniquely made-by-you. If your card is a collage, it can't be possible to re-create your card completely with supplies bought off the rack.
There are a lot of ways you could do this--you could make your own background paper with inks or starch or paint, you could hand draw or paint part of your card, you could carve your own rubber stamp, you could start with a photo you took or your own digital art, you could add a handmade embellishment of some sort (wire? polymer clay? fabric?). The possibilities are endless and if you come up with even more ways to do this, feel free to add them in the comments section!
--A change from the previous rounds! Since there was some confusion last time about how significant the unique handmade portion had to be, this time I am specifying that at least one quarter of the time spent on your card should be spent on your unique element(s). I am not going to specify on size, since a lot of effort can go into a small element, but the unique element should be significant, not an afterthought.
The nitty gritty (Read carefully!) :
