I'm addicted to all things mad-scientist! I collect Victorian and Edwardian scientific and medical ephemera. So for this swap think lab glassware, bunsen burners, electric machines, crazy mechanical contraptions too, lightening bolts, things with blinking lights, whirring mechanisms, goggles, aprons, cogs, gauges, gears and copper piping! You could maybe think about a steampunk theme or a Sci-Fi Horror B Movie theme....

In this swap you create an ATC for 2 swap partners (so 1 card to each partner) on the theme of The Mad Scientist! you can create your ATC in any medium you like - but please keep to the standard size of 3.5" x 2.5".

Think about using photos (with embellishments), collage, digital prints of your drawings/paintings/collages, sewing, fabric, stamping etc etc. It's also fine to swap an ATC made by someone else as long as it's a nicely made one.

This is only my 2nd time co-ordinating a swap - so please let me know if you think I've missed anything out - all advice really appreciated - thanks!

You must have at least 3 mailed and rated Type 3 swaps and a rating of no less than 4.5, but newbies are very welcome too! Please message me if you don't meet the requirements but really want to join!

hi, I've had to go into hospital for a few days (really bad timing all round!!) So I'll try to assign partners tomorrow when I can get off the hospital ward for a bit. I will do my best to keep this swap running as smoothly as possible - but please bear with me if there are slight delays. I will also mail my ATCs as soon as I can. Thanks.

Right! I just got out of hospital so I've assigned partners now. Thanks for bearing with me!
