A skinny is like an ATC except that it’s bigger - it measures 3″ by 5″ the size of an index card.

This should be a fun Swap for those that are into skinny art or want to try your first one!

I for one am big into ATC's so the thought of creating on a bigger textile is kinda cool and I want to try this again as I had sooo much fun on the last one I hosted, so I hope that you will join in the fun with me :) I should had posted this swap last month in order to get a good turn out but had been busy gearing up for a festival. So for those that might like to join in for this one please do.

You will make 1 skinny witch. Good witch, bad witch, angel witch, draw, decoupage, stamped and then enhanced how ever you would like to create her before she flys off to your partner.

You should do your 3x5 creation on heavy card stock or bristol paper like an ATC or at least have a stiff backing (like from a cereal box) on your creation so it is not flimsy..you dont want to do these on plain paper as this is to flimsy. If you have any questions feel free to PM me.

Please, to join you must have a 4.8 or higher and no 1 ratings in the past 2 months. Newbies are welcome to join as long as they have a filled out profile. I will be checking profiles and will ban anyone not obeying these simple rules. If you do not follow through with this swap I will Angel and the person not doing their part within the time frame will not be able to partake in any future swaps with me.

So join in, do something new but most importantly HAVE FUN! Your witch should be done just in time to fly in and say Happy Halloween to your partner!

I really like this Swap but I live in the Netherlands. I will be really pleased if you made it international.

loveniawinkel 09/29/2009 #

I'm fine with doing international. I don't know how switching partners would work on here, or if it's possible? I know you could just switch addresses, but I'm not sure what's done when it comes to ratings.

Of course, if you want Gemma, we could do a one-on-one.

Candyn29 09/29/2009 #

ooh, Im so into drawing ugly witches with crooked noses and warts right now.!

creationsbygena 09/30/2009 #

ok ok... I had several request for making this international that I went ahead and changed this. You only have to make one skinny for 1 partner so it should not break the postage bank..heehee so please join in and lets have some fun. Ugly witches are surely welcome!

gemma 10/ 5/2009 #

Thank you so much loveniawinkel, your offer is really nice. Also your offer a one-on-one with me. As you can see creationbygena has changed the swap in internatonional so I can join this swap.

creationsbygena 10/ 7/2009 #

I hope you guys are excited about this Skinny swap. I got mine done so once names are assigned mine will be flying out the door to one lucky swapper..heh heh heh

creationsbygena 10/16/2009 #

as I have been asked and again to repeat (so forgive me if I sound like a broken record)..heehee just want to be sure any newbies wanting to join understands:

A skinny is like an ATC except that it’s bigger - it measures 3″ by 5 inches and As a general rule, swaps are open to any media, materials or techniques as long as the card is the 3x5. (An ATC is 2.5x3.5 and is smaller) and it is best to have some type of backing to stiffen the card so it is not flimsy.

For the Witch Skinny you are to make a Witch. It can be a nice one, pretty one, ugly one, any type of witch that you draw, paint, decoupage etc. All I ask that people Don't place stickers on a card and call it complete as it is not. Even if you just stamp on a card, please embellish it. Put some effort into it and send out as you would want to receive.

This should be a fun swap for everyone :)

I got mine finished today and it's so cute I want to keep it! I was a bit skeptical about the size when I first cut my background paper to that size, but once I had the items on there and it was finished, I realized that it is a perfect size. I think I have a new addiction!

Candyn29 10/23/2009 #

why is it that when i go into my swap partner, I have to send to 2 people when this swap is only for 1 partner?

ArizonianbutmissesMichigan 10/23/2009 #

The same thing happened to me. Lets hope it is a quick fix. Happy Friday! :)

Marata 10/23/2009 #

waiting to see how they fix the mailing list.....mine is ready to go.

Candyn29 10/23/2009 #

maybe we will have to make a 2nd. I'm almost through with halloween. My 2nd card out might be a day or 2 late.

sakameg 10/23/2009 #

I'm in the same boat...two partners instead of one! I don't mind making another one...I just need to know if that's what I need to do.

rplante525 10/25/2009 #

Well the 1st one has been done and so I just made my 2nd one just in case. I don't really mind. Want to get them sent out tommorrow.

racheljohnson 10/25/2009 #

Hi all - We have now reassigned partners for this swap so that each person only has one person to whom they send. I also sent out an email with this info. Make sure to re-check you partner assignments before sending your swap.

I am very sorry for the inconvenience,

Rachel Johnson Swap-bot Admin

Candyn29 10/25/2009 #

well i now have an extra card. so would anyone in the u.s. be up for a private swap?

rplante525 10/26/2009 #

I have one also Candyn I will do swap and if anyone else made an extra one if you want to also swap....

creationsbygena 10/28/2009 #

hey gang due to the misshap way beyond my control I did extend the deadline to send your swap out by to Oct. 31. Please dont forget to mark your swap as sent when you send it out. I even forgot to mark it so don't forget. And again I am sorry we got such a confusing start. Swap-bot admin really did a great job fixing the issue. Happy swapping and Happy Halloween!
