Hello All Ephemera Junkies! My name is Johnny and I will be hosting some new swaps ... please feel free to contact me with any suggestions or questions regarding this or future swaps.

For this swap you will be stamping an image of at least 2 1/2" x 2 1/2" or larger onto a book page. You will do this for a total of 5 pages.

1) All images need to be different and do not repeat the image.

2) Images need to be stamped using black archival ink. (NOT STAZE ON)

3) Do not color your image in but leave it uncolored for your partner to use as they wish.

4) You may send more than five but don't expect more than five from your partner.

5) DO not cut them out but leave the page whole and intact for your partner to use as they wish.

6) Do not use digital images these must be hand stamped images, and no photo copies of stamped images allowed.

7) No holiday stamps please for this round ...

8) Stay away from Phrases only, phrases with pictures are fine.

9) SENDERS choice but please try to send something you'd love to get.

10) Please do not fold pages leave them flat for mailing.

I love stamping and inks and could talk about them all day if anyone would indulge me. So, why do you like the archival better than the stayzon ink?

Does the size of the book page matter?

Sorry...I'm not use to checking the questions...I'll get better :) @Angie Well, the archival works better with copics and watercoloring...I have had the stazon smear with copics. So if the receiver wants to use copics to color in the image then they won't be able to if you use Stazon.Just all around better for mixed media.

@MamaMangrove I would stick to 6"x 6" 15.24cm that will give the receiver a good stmped image to work with. Thanks for the questions.

Oh, I didn't know that archival doesn't smear. I thought Stayzon was the non-smeary one. I'm going to check it out!

@craftwiz do you mean 6" x 8"? I don't have any square book pages :)!

craftwiz 05/17/2016 #

@GinaVisione Really I do have some square ones....Like children's books...but none I would probably consider stamping on but I do have a ton of books ready for cutting up or something fun!
