Hello everyone! This swap is for those of us who enjoy the darker side of life. Is your music taste still back in the 80's? Do you like taking photos in graveyards, putting on a pair of big stompy boots and going dancing, or just - like me - believe that every day is Halloween? Then this is for you.

For this swap you will send your partner an ATC with a Dark/Macabre theme. This can be collaged, hand painted, stamped, your choice - but be creative and put a little effort in for your partner! Keep in mind it doesn't need to be evil or gory to be dark. Dark can be bougie and beautiful too!

Feel free to add extra themed goodies in your envelope, and maybe even make the outside of the envelope fun too.

No sticker/coloring page slapping, stickers and elements from coloring pages are fine as long as they're used creatively, but should never be all there is to it. Hand crafting and adding a personal touch is so much nicer.

I haven't hosted a swap in YEARS, so this is going to be fun! Newbies are allowed, as long as your profile is filled out. I will absolutely angel if necessary, but hopefully everyone will enjoy this theme and I won't need to. Any questions, feel free to ask! :)

I'm new to swap-bot and just sent my first PC. I'm really interested in this theme, but I was curious if the ATC had to be purchased as is, or could I cut out the dimensional equivalent out of watercolor paper I own?

Welcome! I cut my own with 140lb watercolor paper, and glue a piece of scrapbook paper or an index card to the back for more strength (and style.) You can use cereal box material, or any sturdy paper - as long as it's 2.5" x 3.5" and doesn't easy bend into a U shape, you're good. :)
