Feb - March 2017 'Shades Of Blue' ATC Swap

Hi Everyone
Well here we are in a new year and I hope you
are all up for another year of swaps and creating
some awesome little cards.

The theme for this swap is:
Shades of Blue
Feel free to interpret the Shades of Blue theme any way you like
but your ATC must include:

                        Shades of blue (as many as you like), and
                        some bling

          1.   Australian papercrafters are encouraged to Participate in this ATC swap.
          2.   If you commit to swap please, out of consideration for all the
                participants please meet the set guidelines.
          3.   To participate , write a comment to add your name to the list of participants
                below and I will email you my address details.
          4.   Post your ATC's and a stamped self addressed envelope to me on or by
                the posting deadline (see 7 below). I recommend that you put your ATC's
                into a plastic 9 pocket protective sleeve to protect them from bad weather.

Deadline dates:
          5.   Registration list for swaps opens Wednesday 1 February and closes
                Tuesday 7 February.
          6.   To register to participate please leave a comment before the closing date.
                I will then confirm the number of ATC's needed to be made for the current swap.
          7.   Swaps must be in the mail to me by no later than Friday 17 March (as mail
                can take a business week to arrive to me depending upon where you are located)
                and I should receive them all by Friday 24 March at the latest.
          8.   I will post swaps received on Monday 27 march at the latest so you should
                receive your ATC's shortly thereafter.
Participation governance
               ATC swap numbers will be limited to ten per swap.
               Founding members have automatic entry into each swap (but still need to
               confirm their participation for each swap).
               With the exception of founding members, participants will be eligible to take
               part on a 'first in' registration basis.

I do hope you will participate - any questions feel free to leave a comment.

What's an ATC?
An ATC is the acronym for Artist Trading Card.
For anyone new to ATC's it's a small piece of original work that measures 2.5" x 3.5".
There is no right or wrong way to create an ATC - you just need to stick to the
measurements and the rest is up to your imagination.
