Up for a challenge?? This is for you!!

You will make one standard size fabric ATC (2.5" x 3.5") for your partner. You can use any techniques, methods and embellishments to create your fabric ATC. The ATC base should be fabric stiffened with interfacing or a cardstock backing. See our tips for creating a fabric ATC.

Note: I am making this swap for fabric ATCs only at this stage, however may open it up to mixed media options if there is not enough interest.

Now for the challenge part: I will give you the last 5 words from Illustration Friday's weekly topics. You should use at least two of these themes when creating your ATC. Be creative!

The words are: Journey, Bottled, Duet, Toy, Cultivate

Be sure to include a note with the name of this swap and your Swap-bot ID so that your partner can rate you when they receive your art. Also include a description of your interpretation of the theme.

Any embellishments welcome!! For example: embroidery, quilting, sewing, beads, findings, paint or ink - anything you can apply to your fabric.

You may start making your ATC immediately (and have up to 6 weeks to complete it) or wait until partners are assigned and review your partners profile to personalize your ATC for them.

Newbies welcome. If you have any 1 or 3 ratings please contact me first. Remember if you join in you are making a commitment to the swap!

My original idea was to limit this to only two topics where both must be used, however I want to see how this will go and if you enjoy the challenge so please provide some feedback on the blog - click here!

It has taken me a couple of weeks to work out what I'll do for the challenge myself, but I've just finished mine. How are you all going? Do you want to see mine for inspiration or shall I keep it a secret??

keep it a secret and see what different interpretations there are. We could scan and email pics of what we did ?? as you will only get to see your partner's

I would absolutely love to see everyones interpretations and get some feedback on your thoughts about this type of swap!! I had a lot of fun being challenged and would love to run some more of these so feedback would be good. For your pictures, I'll create a feedback link over on the atcswaps blog soon and would love if you would post a link to what you made/received in the comments - if you don't have your own blog you can email me pics and I can post them for you.
