Description:

This is a sender's choice Artist Trading Card swap. I ran a private version of this that went pretty well, so I'm opening it up to the public. Because ATCs are small and can be mailed with just a stamp, we're going to make this International.

You're going to have two partners, so expect to make two ATCs. (If you've never made one, check out the links at the bottom for some tips.)

Rules: 1) No sticker slapping. This means you can't put a sticker on a playing card and send that out. You could use stickers in a collage, but there should be some artistic element to this swap.

2) No rotting art materials. This means don't use food or poop. I am sure no one here would do that, but I just wanted it out there in case someone was feeling crazy.

3) Keep your art in the traditional ATC size (standard playing card) so people who collect them can fit them in protector sleeves. The links below have examples for using different materials or pop-up cards, which are all acceptable.

4) Send your art protected by a note card or at least some cardboard so it arrives nicely.

5) Send a card you'd be happy to get, BUT don't beat yourself up if you think your art isn't the best. As long as you put effort into it, it will be fun.

I will angel if I need to, but please don't sign up unless you intend to follow through. Newbies are allowed with a filled-out profile.

If you don't get 2 cards, please message me! I need to know if people flake.

Okay everyone, I'm assigning in the morning. Remember- if you don't get your swaps (either of them) by two weeks after the deadline, message your partner. If you don't get a response from them, message me and rate accordingly. I can't bar flakers without your help- and hopefully, we won't have any! Happy arting, people.
