ATC Tuesday

And another Pick-a-theme swap - this time we chose whether we wanted bright colours, pastels or greyscale, alongside our theme. So I made a bright card with an eye theme, 

a greyscale card with a cat theme

a pastel card with a rabbit theme

and a bright zentangle card. I'm not great at zentangles, but I'll give it a go when requested.

Some round robin ATCs where I was the first player - I made the background and them sent them to other people to work on.

These cards were for a Pick-a-theme swap where the players asked for two things (a cat AND a beer; a snail and a quote from Shakespeare, etc).  I was in a difficult group (they are divided into easy and difficult as per certain criteria, usually to do with how specific something is), and most of us ended up choosing song lyrics, and one person a poem. The first card was a request for something from this song, which I didn't know. 

This one didn't ask for a specific song, just something off this album (Meddle by Pink Floyd; I went with something from Echoes.)

This player asked for a song off The White Album, so that one was a no-brainer for me as I am a huge fan of blackbirds and I love that song.

This was the poem one.

And a card for the hostess, who I know likes sunflowers (AND, one hopes, roosters).

One of the decks of altered playing cards I am working on gradually building (I have a bird deck and a butterfly deck) is one using postage stamps (cancelled) on them.  So I joined one round of this swap, which was for Jacks - you send a jack of each suit and receive one in return of each suit, but by different artists. Mine aren't exactly themed to the stamp, but approximately. 

And this card was made for the hostess, using stamps (but not a playing card).

These are all round robin cards where I was the person who started the card.  Two other people then worked on it, and I got one of the finished cards back.

This swap was a valentine's themed Pick-a-theme swap. So all the cards were Valentine's themed, but then each person specified something else - like this  one wanted anatomical hearts. 

This person's birthday is Valentine's day, so she wanted a birthday theme.

This person wanted a snarky Valentine. 

And this player wanted Vintage Valentines. 

And finally, this was a card for the hostess, who listed cat-people among her likes, so I made a cat-head person for her.

These cards are all round robin cards - worked on by three people - where I was the second person to work on the card. Someone started it, sent it to me, I added something and then sent it off to be finished. I like showing these as it means I can show all three stages of the card, which is fun.
