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 Â½ X 3 Â½ 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.
