My goal for 2017 is to create a piece of art every week, and what better way to do that than to create at least 1 ATC each week? By the end of the year, if you were to do this, you'd have the equivalent to an entire deck of cards! My goal is to run these swaps weekly if possible, and if there's enough interest. I'll also do my best to post themes way in advance for those who would like to try to swap in each round, so that you can work ahead.

For this swap we will be using a prompt and creating 1 ATC on sturdy backing to send to our partner. This should be sent in a protective sleeve, ATC sized envelope, or carefully placed in a greeting card so that it doesn't get damaged in the mail. The prompt for Round 13 is ~ Shaped. Shaped means anything that measures 2.5 by 3.5 inches at its longest and widest points, but may measure thinner in other areas. Examples could be house shaped, arched, egg shaped, I've made one that was shaped like Mississippi, and received one once shaped like a corset. Use your imagination and be sure it's very sturdy. Please send an ATC you personally made that is of good quality...one you'd be happy to receive. Be sure to sign the back with your user ID and the name and round of the swap. No sticker slapping, or digital ATC's. Collage style preferred, however, If you have a great talent for drawing, hand drawn are accepted.

Upcoming rounds:Round 15- Travel; Round 16- Senders Choice; Round 17- Fish; Round 18- Pick a Weird and Wacky Holiday; Round 19- Cats; Round 20~ Dogs; Round 21 and up ....to be determined soon!

As with all swaps I host, I check ALL participants prior to assigning partners and reserve the right to ban anyone I feel will not follow through with the swap. I will ban ANYone who has recent 3's or 1's, and any one with excessive or unexplained poor ratings. I strive to keep the highest standards in my swaps, but I am also happy to allow newbies with VERY well filled out profiles. (If you need to ask if your profile is good enough, then you probably don't need to sign up...try the newbie helper groups, and forums then revisit later rounds of the swap.) If for any reason you are flaked on, please rate a 1, then shoot me a private message and I'll be more than happy to angel the swap for you.

The short of it: create an ATC on sturdy backing using a "shaped" theme and mail securely to your partner. Be sure to sign the back of the ATC with your user name and swap name.

Not an artist trading card, but a ticket would be a cool shape

Click here and scroll down to see several examples of arch shaped ATC's and an egg shaped one. These are photographed on a black background, but they are indeed shales, not mounted on black.

Best yet! On this link you'll find a diamond shaped ATC, several tombstone arches, the corset shaped one I received from her, and several other fun ones!
