I personally am in heaven with the not being able to leave my house. But I know there are those out there that are going stir crazy. I am concerned about the lack of happy mail coming and going. I used to teach ART in our homeschool group. So I present...

AN ATC A DAY - Keep the Covid-19 shut-in crazies away. Just fun simple ATC challenges that spark creativity and cure the common boredom. This will be a series of 14 prompts/days (maybe longer)

For this swap you will have ONE partner in which you will send an ATC with the daily inspired art challenge.

The AAD prompt for today is: TAPE RESIST

For this you will make an ATC using tape and paint or color. You can search “tape resist painting” on Pinterest or Google for more ideas.


  • The ATC must be 2.5X3.5” (The size of a poker card)
  • Art can be presented Landscape or Portrait
  • Plastic sleeves are encouraged but not required
  • The Art work MUST be in the daily challenge style, whatever that may be. Anything other than the daily prompt DOES NOT meet the requirements.
  • On the back of the ATC you MUST write “ATC A DAY # , The Prompt, The Date and Your Name.”
  • Send on time with proper postage.

If you receive the requirements above please leave feed back according to Swap Bot Rules:

  • 5 - I got my stuff and it met the posted swap requirements.
  • 3 - I got my stuff, but it didn't meet the posted swap requirements. Please be patient with our postal services right now, and do not blame your partner for things that are clearly out of their control. Communication is key.
  • 1 - I never got anything.

I do not put a rating requirement, but I do go thru every profile prior to assigning. I will ban at my discretion. I look at past fumbles and current swaps. If you are new to swap bot I make sure you have a well filled out profile. Because of this I WILL ALWAYS ANGEL if necessary. If I have to angel for you, you will never be allowed in my swaps again, or any groups I admin.

Can the ATC be embellished besides the theme? Example: glued on items, stamped words etc?

Can you use fluid masking tape?

Autist 04/ 2/2020 #

Yes, embellishments are okay as long as the art type is prevalent.

I do not know what fluid masking tape is. If the results are the same. I don’t see what not

Autist, it is so easy, paint on the area you don’t want the watercolor to show and then rub off. It’s great. Michaels has it for 12.00 but use a 50 percent off coupon

Lauri, I've heard of that..always wanted to try it. Maybe I will order some now! Thanks!

I was skeptical about this initially. But man these came out SO cute and I cant wait to try this on a bigger scale.

Thank you Autist for hosting these <3
