For those of us who enjoy working with the vintage genre, I'm preparing to set up a series of ATC swaps with vintage as the basis, and go through a series of monthly variations of this theme. The first one...Ladies, ladies, ladies! Either one lady or a group would be fine as long as it keeps with the vintage motif.

You will create one ATC for one partner. Any technique is acceptable - digital, collage, etc. as long as it is your work. Let's keep this sticker-free. Please take the time to make something that you would be proud to give and receive.

  • Cards must be of standard ATC size - 21/2" x 31/2" and have a sturdy backing.
  • Include your name & contact info, title of your card and date on the back of your card.
  • Please keep the artwork PG-13 - no offensive or vulgar stuff!
  • Rating minimum 4.8 with no recent unexplained history. Trying to keep it as flake-free as possible, I will check profiles and ban if in doubt. I'm sorry but...yeah.

I will have one new theme variation per month, so if you are in from the beginning you will build a nice little collection. :)

I found a neat website with lots of royalty-free vintage images at http://e-vint.com/free.html

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

What's an ATC?

DarianNox 06/ 6/2011 #

To be clear I know what the acronym stands far but don't really understand what it is.

KatarinaNavane 06/ 7/2011 #

@DarianNox ATCs are artwork 2.5 by 3.5 inches that are traded between artists. Lots of people do collage here but any art medium works. Typically people write their name and some contact info on the back. Beyond that, anything goes.

Woohoo! Just got some great vintage paper today. Now I have a use for it!

JohnnyDingo 06/ 9/2011 #

Interesting. I've made numerous ATC's but never tried "Vintage." I'll look through my collection of STUFF and see if I already have something I can use and maybe I'll join this one. Looks cool!

Can newbies join?

deLux 06/ 9/2011 #

I have a question, how old does the image have to be to be considered "vintage"? Victorian only, or can it include up to 1950's?

angkb 06/10/2011 #

Great Link of vintage pictures! Thanks! I'm watching for now :)

Hello everyone and thanks for joining! For this swap, I am going to keep it to folks with the ratings specified above. If you are an interested but unrated "newbie" ~ PM me and we can set up a private swap along these same lines. You get a rating in, and I get another ATC!

As far as the definition of vintage, since I did not specifically declared Victorian vintage, I am going to go with the Webster dictionary definition of "old, recognized, and enduring interest, importance, or quality : classic" and "dating from the past" so ...up to 1950's is fine. I would suggest that you check your partner's profile and see if they have a preference.

deLux 06/12/2011 #

I tried to leave you a message, but it keeps telling me that my email address is unverified: I would like to do a private swap on this subject! Sorry I don't know all the ropes yet.

This is going to be fun. Thanks for the Link, there are some awesome pics there. I love vintage, but I don't get a chance to do much of it. Lately I have been in a Graphics 45 mood, and have a biweekly swap going on as well. But I don't think G45 is a vintage line, so thanks for the resources.

Can we use stickers as accents? I have lace stickers and they would be perfect.

Fairies 06/18/2011 #

Thank you so much for the link. I already have some picked out. (dusting) Fairies.

BambooPanda13 06/18/2011 #

wow what an incredible number of participants, how fun!!

Kattera22 06/19/2011 #

So exsited to get my partner!

InFlorida 06/19/2011 #

Wow! Over 100 participants! Fantastic. Really looking forward to it, this is going to be a great series! I see that there are a couple of unrated folks signed up. I'll reiterate here that if you are unrated or have issues in your swapping history, I am going to have to leave you out of the general swap - However, I am happy to set up a private trade with you using the same details as this one. You receive a rating and I receive an ATC. Just trying to stick with the original guidelines of the swap. I'll be assigning partners tomorrow morning :)

Kattera22 06/20/2011 #

I am also wondering if we can use stickers for accents?

InFlorida 06/20/2011 #

Hmm I am really, really not fond of stickers. So, I am going to say to check with your partners and see if they have sticker aversion.

Fairies 06/21/2011 #

N, I found the swap again. I will not let me into the swap. I guess I will just wait until I get some swaps rated and join some more of your swaps. Thanks, for your time. Fairies

@Fairies I just PM'd you. Hang in there, we'll get it going!
