"Anchors Aweigh" Swap :: Sign up!

Hey people! Wow, I have a serious swap problem. I just created a new swap on swap-bot.com for ATC's (Artist Trading Cards) with a nautical theme.

You should sign up so I have other people indulging in this fun addiction with me. Below is the low-down on this swap. It contains some swap-bot lingo so if you are confused just let me know. You have to create an account on swap-bot - but it's easy, don't let that turn you away.

For this ATC swap you will create one (1) ATC each for two (2) partners.

The theme of this ATC is "Anchors Aweigh" which is the song of the US Navy, but this swap theme can include anything nautical - sailboats, speedboats, anchors, US Navy, sailors, anchors....whatever you feel is a nautical.

Be careful not to make it patriotic themed if you go the US Navy route - that's not a bad thing, but we're going "simply nautical" for this ATC.

You can use collage, drawing, or whatever to create your ATC - no limits, but please put some thought & creativity into your card.


This swap is open to all with a rating of 3.5 or higher and no no-sends within the past 3 months. Newbies are welcome with a full profile.

I will be banning anyone who doesn't meet the above requirements.

Please sign up only if you fully intend to follow through. Thanks!

New to ATCs? Please check out this http://www.cedarseed.com/air/atc.html website for lots of good info!!

In general, ATCs (artist trading cards) are miniature works of ART. The size of the card must be 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches...the size of a baseball card. Just about any media may be used (paper, yarn, photos, magazine clippings, paint, pen, pencil, rubber stamping, fabric...)...mostly use your imagination! The card should be sturdy so don't use flimsy paper for the backing/background. Please send something to your partner that you would like to receive yourself.
