"YELLOW" Artists' Trading Cards Swap - Postmark by March 5th

It seems that we haven't had an ATC group swap since last June.  By definition, Artists' Trading Cards are 3+1/2" x 2+1/4."  They may be oriented either horizontally or vertically.

Those living where winter is cold, dark and cloudy may be longing for warmer, sunny days.  Yellow can be such a cheery color.

For this Artists' Trading Cards swap, let's use mostly YELLOW as a background color and  in our design elements.  It's okay to add some touches of other colors as accents or contrast.  Texture can add a nice touch, too.  Any techniques or media combinations are allowed.  

THEME: YELLOW
MEDIA:  Any
TECHNIQUE:  Any
SIZE PARAMETERS:  3+1/2" x 2+1/2"
CHECKLIST:
  • MAKE UP 1 - 4 ARTISTS' TRADING CARDS TO SWAP

ATC SWAP DETAILS:
  • You may send in as many as four ATCs for this swap.  (You will get back the same number you send, each from a different artist)
  • Your ATC's, along with a return envelope, should be mailed to your host.  Your host will mail your ATC's to your swap partners.  
  • Include an SASE (envelope) long/large enough to send your new ATC(s) to you.
  • Please insert waxed paper, parchment or cellophane between the cards so they don't get stuck together in the envelope, especially if you use glue, paint or sealant.
  • Write “MMSA - YELLOW" on the back of each card along with your name and contact info.  An email address legibly written makes it easier for your recipient to acknowledge receiving it and to thank you.
  • ATCs made from thick, stiff cardboard or with thick embellishments may require more postage to send through the mail.
