  • The ATC will consist of any theme you like and it must be made in black and white with hints of red. The media you use is that which makes you happy :)

    • One ATC 2.5x 3.5 card per partner. Only one partner in this swap.

    • This swap will be international.

    • Make something that you would love yourself. Put some effort and make a good piece of art ( a goof piece in my understanding has at least 3 or 4 layers on it). There is a distant deadline and since the theme is free for you to choose we will have plenty of time to put into it, so no excuses for not making it adorable.

    • Newbies welcome with filled in profiles, if you wish to join the swap 'PM' me first, otherwise you will be banned from the swap.

    • I will be checking profiles and ban you if I think you wont be able to fulfill the swap criteria.

    • NO FLAKERS. If you see a known flaker please let me know.


For those that don't do layers and like to watercolor as long as you put work into the piece you are welcome to join, i just don't want any swappers to be disappointed by receiving a piece of scrapbook paper with stickers on it. You get the point, I hope :O)

I am a newbie here, but i would love to join in this swap. Please let me know if i can!

yomousey 09/ 2/2009 #

Oh I can't wait! I have my ATC all planned:)

Lolailo 09/ 2/2009 #

Hi Akuadolce, here I am, I have made 9 ATC of this kind, now it's going to be difficult to choose one. Besos guapa!

islanesia 09/ 2/2009 #

Thanks for letting me join up Akuadolce!

Moose 09/ 2/2009 #

I'm thinking about joining but i do have a problem with your definition of "a good piece of art". A handdrawn ATC has just one layer and can be good. Don't think layers have so much to do with good or bad ...

HoldonMagnolia 09/ 3/2009 #

this is so incredibly neat, can i join??? I just signed up today for this swap but i'm pretty amped about the possibilities here :) sort of reminds me of Postcard Secrets -- anybody ever read that?

akuadolce 09/ 4/2009 #

All of those that want to do a water colored piece are welcome, the important thing is that there is work put into it and not just a sticker on a piece of scrapbook paper. Holdonmagnolia welcome to join the swap. Lolailo, haha, good job!

MiaParanoia 09/ 4/2009 #

Fortunately I'm already finished with making this one. Still have that smashed wrist.

islanesia 09/ 4/2009 #

I've been having SO MUCH FUN working on concepts for this swap-- I ended up planning a whole set!

Rejoicing 09/ 8/2009 #

watching for now...A little unsure due to the description...Would something like a zentangle-type card qualify?

JavaJunkie 09/ 8/2009 #

If you are my partner feel free to do a scary theme or Twilight theme, read my profile for more info on TV shows/Movies/Books I like (and my other interests). Even a Horror Movie theme would be excitedly accepted. This will be cool! Artistic Freedom...JOY!!!

akuadolce 09/ 9/2009 #

Yes 'Rejoicing', it would be acceptable as long as the measurements of the card are the standard ATC size 2.5x 3.5. The only requirements are those and I only pledge for everybody to put work into it and not just sent a piece of paper with a sticker which can be very disappointing to receive.

Sabriel 09/ 9/2009 #

yay just joined :) can't wait to get cracking on this cool little ATC. and it's 2.5 x 3.5 INCHES isn't it? just making sure as we're metric in Australia.

rychegirl 09/10/2009 #

I am a newbie and may I please join your swap. I love making ATC's and I think this is a great theme. Please consider me and thank you.

Becs 09/10/2009 #

Hi there, I am a new Swapbot. I just signed up and would love to join this swap. You can find my work on my blog. I love making ATC's and red is my favorite color. Becs http://rebeccarosedesigns.blogspot.com

akuadolce 09/11/2009 #

Rychegirl you are welcome to join. Everyone deserves a first.

akuadolce 09/11/2009 #

Alright Becs, you can join, you don't have a filled in profile though. Nice work btw.

Meike2 09/11/2009 #

Did I underdtand right? One ATC to one partner?

Becs 09/11/2009 #

Thanks so much! I have completed my profile now. Thanks...Becs.

angkb 09/11/2009 #

I'll join too but I agree with Moose, because layers do not constitute a good ATC. Hand-drawn, painted, even photo graphics are all flat and can be just a beautiful. If you are requiring layers please let me know. Thanks.

akuadolce 09/11/2009 #

Meike yes is one partner only.

akuadolce 09/11/2009 #

angkb that point has already been made clear in the past, as long as it has good work put into it its fine. You don't have to do layers. Layers are always nice for those of us that love to work with them and to receive them, but not everybody's art work is the same. Again, what we don't want here is a scrapbook paper with a sticker, and that was the whole point. So feel welcome to join and share your beautiful art. =)

MammaBear 09/12/2009 #

I am relatively new to ATCs but I would really like to join this swap. Hope you will let me. I'm going to put my name in now because I am going out of town today and probably won't be back before the swap ends. Thanks

islanesia 09/12/2009 #

Hooray! Mine's all done-- ready to send!

creationsbygena 10/ 8/2009 #
