This swap is for those who are new to making ATCs and are nervous about having their abilities judged by others. Of course seasoned ATC swappers are more than welcomed too :)

Artist Trading Cards (or ATCs) are miniature works of art about the same size as modern baseball cards, 2 ½ X 3 ½ inches (63 mm X 89 mm), small enough to fit inside standard card-collector pockets, sleeves or sheets.

Cards are produced in various media, including dry media (pencils, pens, markers, etc.), wet media (watercolor, acrylic paints, etc.), paper media (in the form of collage, papercuts, found objects, etc.) or even metals or cloth. The cards are traded or exchanged rather than sold.

On the front of an ATC an artist creates an original work to showcase their art. It can be a one-off, part of a series, or a limited edition. On the back the artist puts their name, swap-bot id, email address, title of the ATC, number if it's a limited edition, country you are from and sometimes the date it was created.

For this swap you will create one ATC for you partner. You can make the ACT however you want and use any medium (paper, clay, paint, pencil, ect). It is senders choice of theme also so you can start working on it right away.

When you receive your ATC from your partner please rate a 5 if you can tell they put work into it, do not judge on artistic ability we want people to feel free to try their hand at ATCs without worry of judgement. You should not just put stickers on a piece of paper and call it good though. Please rate your partner as soon as you receive your ATC.

This is a newbie friendly swap but you must have a WELL FILLED out profile and if you are a rated swapper must have at least a 4.9 rating and no recent one's or three's. I will be checking profiles and have the right to ban anyone who doesn't fill the requirements.

If you have any questions on how swaps work, how to make an ATC or anything else related to this swap please Private Message me and I would be glad to answer.

Sorry I haven't been online much the last few weeks been super busy. @iampinkandfluffy The theme is whatever you would like it to be.

@flowerlady57 I did change the date and I must have forgot to add edited to the swap, my apologies. I realized I would be on vacation that week so I wanted to make sure I could check profiles before I assigned profiles.

I have wanted to try these, but have been intimidated, so this is perfect. :)

weren't we supposed to have our partners assigned today? I was waiting for this so that I could take all of my swaps together to the post office...=S

GinaMarie 09/22/2011 #

Same here... I kept putting off going to the post office in hopes that I would get my partner and I could do it all at the same time. At least I know I'm not the only one that didn't get assigned yet...

Are partners going to be assigned soon? I wanted to make sure I made something suiting in my partners tastes...times ticking by.

Ditto on all of the comment, what's up?

pinkcamo1980 09/23/2011 #

Sorry about that for some reason I just got the reminder in my email. I will give a few extra days to send to make up for it. I usually assign them the second I am able to I do appologize since I know how annoying it can be to have the host assign partners late. I haven't been online much since I haven't been feeling so well and had school all week so when I got home I didn't do anything.
