This is the fifth in a series of limited supply ATC swaps. These swaps will restrict the use of common supplies meaning you have to be more creative to make your ATC!

For this swap we will be using ONLY paint, mediums and ink. THe base of the ATC can be anything you like and you may emboss it if you wish. But no other paper or embellishments unless they are painted or stamped. For instance, you can cut out a stamped ribbon image but not a real ribbon. You can paint a line to mimic a mat around an image but not an actual paper layer. If you paint or ink a piece of paper you may then die cut it or use it as a mat but it must be totally covered.

You may use anything you like to add these mediums: stencils, pen, brushes, foam, sponges, stamps, your fingers, airbrushing, credit card, palette knife.

To keep in the spirit of the swap you must use at least three different mediums, NOT three different colours. Allowed mediums are: gel medium or any variation (like glass bead gel), any type of paint (oil, watercolor, acrylic), glue (used to decorate, not adhere), nail polish, spray paint, spray mist, stains, any type of ink. You may use more than one type of paint but to count as one of three mediums, for example, all acrylic paint counts as one, all ink as one no, matter the type etc.

So if you stencil some embossing paste on your base then stamp an image and colour it with watercolor or markers, you have your three! Bonus points and maybe hearts from your partner if you use more than 3!! Please mention in a note what your 3+ mediums are if its not obvious.

Come on! Challenge Yourself!!

Next in the series: no paper, only hand made embellies and I'm sure I'll think of more or you will leave me comments of your ideas!

*no teacher/reward stickers, pixelated computer printouts or magazine pages (unless significantly and beautifully altered).

*make something lovely you'd be proud to receive and wish you could keep for yourself!

*this is sender's choice but please respect your partner's dislikes for instance, don't add bugs if they hate them or colours they don't like.

*please have no recents 3s or any 1s without a good explanation in the comments of that swap or send me a note first.

*Please consider hearts for your partner if they made a really nice Card. Extras are not the only reason to give hearts.

*i will angel once you have PMd twice and gotten no or negative responses and have rated a 1. Let me know if things aren't working out in your discussions. I'm happy to help!

Shouldn't this be a type 3 swap?
