I'm going to do 9 swaps of different colors. For those of us who save our ATC's in 9 slot card holders in notebooks, this will look good to have a whole page of altered text ATC's.

What is an altered text ATC? Click here for samples . It's quite simple and can be fun trying to come up with a sentence or two that makes sense!!! Not all will make sense though....

Here are the rules:

Make a standard size ATC (2.5x3.5") and use an actual book page as your backgound.

Attach a sturdy piece of cardboard on the back for stability.

It's nice to finish the back of the ATC with a piece of nice paper. Don't forget to put your swap info on the back.

Outline your phrase, sentence, etc. as the sample picture suggests.

After outlining your words, then cover the rest of the ATC with the color SILVER/GRAY using the medium of your choice...can be inks, paints, markers, pencils, etc.

You can finish it using embellishments of your choice or leave it plain (your choice).

You must have a 4.8 or above rating....You must have 10 recently completed and rated swaps....No 1's or 3's in the last 3 months....

Be sure to get your swaps out on time! Please don’t sign up if you can’t meet the qualifications and the deadlines…your partner is depending on you to follow through!

If you want to make them ahead...here's the order of the colors we'll be doing: Red - Blue - Green - Silver/Gray - Purple - Pink - Yellow - Brown - Black

Have fun and happy swapping!

I would love to try this but can't send International. Will you be doing any for U.S. only?

This was mailed early Friday morning, 5th of July. But didn't get a chance to sign on until after 9 PM here, so it comes up as the 6th of July

After we finish the series, I'd like to do a private swap for a blue altered text card. I was unable to participate when it was posted. Anyone interested?
