Always on the lookout for private ATCs swaps, and now for zines too !


📧

Please please please communicate with me before rating a 3 or 1. I will always resend if needed.

Be aware that I drop my mail in the nearest mailbox. There is no pickup on the weekend, so the postmark might show a later date than what is marked as the send date on swap-bot.


💯

I try to rate promptly but sometimes work gets in the way. I will always rate though. If you are worried, do not hesitate to contact me about it.

I do not give a heart for extras. I do not send extras for a heart. I do not decorate my envelopes. I want to keep my swaps as light as possible (and as requirements allow) to save on postage.


💌

I strive to be a good host. Helpful advice is always welcome. Thank you to those who have commented and helped me along the way.

I will angel when necessary. All my swaps do mention "If you are interested and available to angel if needed, please let me know." This is meant as a precaution should I be unable to angel due to Real Life happening.

ATCs

  • Mostly hand-drawn
  • Time spent on an ATC : anything between 45 minutes and an hour
  • There are no spoilers on my Instagram account. I only post process and finished product pics after my ATCs are in the hands of partners.
  • I prefer to receive hand-drawn/hand-painted ATCs but welcome everything. I am however not very fond of very bulky ATCs. I stick by the rule "If I can fit it in a sleeve, it's all good".
  • I prefer my ATCs in portrait orientation : 2.5" at the top and 3.5" on the side

Zines

  • Digital and hand-drawn, also writing poetry
  • Available at my Etsy shop as I release them (link up top)

Comment: This is such an awesome ATC! I absolutely love Jin and this is so special being hand drawn. It took a while to get here, but it was so worth it. Thanks so much!!
Response: Yeah, I wish mail from Canada to Australia was quicker... At least it got there, I was a bit worried. I haven't played Tekken in a long while, so it was super fun to get to draw Jin. ^_^ (I wanted to draw one of the warlocks from Destiny at first but I was too afraid to mess up since their designs is so detailed lol.)

Comment: Elisabeth, I am freaking out about your Ponyta/Rapidash ATC! Thank you SO much! You said you wished you were better at drawing horses, but I think it’s wonderful! 😍😍 Thank you!
Response: I used to draw horses (and unicorns, yessss) all the time when I was a kid. At least I got better since then and they don't look like squares with legs anymore. XD I'm glad you like it, this ATC was pure fun.

Response: The battle animations are amazing! It had been a long while since I enjoyed a shonen so much. =D

Comment: Thank you so much for the ATC! I love it! It's been a while since I've read dgrayman too, but it's always been a favorite.
Response: I think I might pick up the manga in digital soon-ish once I make a dent in my to-read pile. Years back, I had a couple of volumes in French but I gave them away, oops.

Comment: Ahhhhh thank you so much for making such a cool ATC!! I was soooo happy when I took out the card and saw Reigen and Dimple 😭💕 You drew them beautifully and I especially loved the white spirits you drew in the background behind them! Just thought it was a really cute detail you added to the ATC 🥰 Thank you again!!
Response: Thank you for giving me a reason to draw something Mob Psycho-related. The spirits were a last minute addition, I'm glad it worked out well. :)
