Ok this one will be fun! Read the directions carefully, please.

For this swap you will be making a SET of three ATCs for your partner, matching, but not replicas. Pick first your color scheme- all three ATCs will be the same color scheme so they all match) from the following:

  1. Teal (or aqua/turquoise) and white
  2. Blues and greens
  3. Monochromatic
  4. Black, white, grey, silver
  5. Earth tones

Now, pick your theme ( all three ATCs will be the same theme so they are a matching set)

  1. Vintage
  2. Fantasy
  3. Inspirational (check partner profile before you do religious)
  4. Ghostly
  5. Weather or nature

Now pick at least three different techniques or mediums( your choice, but challenge yourself to try something new if you like ).

Include a note to your partner telling which choices you made for their ATC set!

That's your challenge!

Now a word on requirements and expectations. I consider this to be for people who put time and effort into their ATC making. Standard rule applies for the size (2 1\2 by 3 1\2 inch) and that they MUST be on a sturdy background. Sleeves are not required, but recommended. Take your time. Your ATCs should have several components or layers...don't leave raw edges, finish them with paint or a marker. This makes your work look completed and more professional! Don't slap stickers and call it done! Don't color a coloring book picture, glue it on and call it done! And definitely take pride in your work! We all want to receive something nice. Get creative!!!

*** Extras are not required nor do I think necessary for this swap as 3 ATCs seem like plenty enough to make your partner happy! But your note should be friendly and personal enough to show them you care.

Join up...and happy swapping!!

I will angel, if need be. No recent low ratings. Please notify me of you see problem swappers joined up. At least 20 type 3 swaps completed/rated please.

Fyi...3 techniques/mediums could include: inking the edges, pa i tint the background, glueing embellishments, calligraphy -ing a sentiment, adding lace, disappointing a stenciled image over a painted background, using glitter glue to enhance the edges of a focus image, stamping an image, using metallic lens to enhance a stamped image of focus image....each time you add a medium or a retail you improve your work. This portion of the swap is to encourage you to "to the extra mile" in your work.
