I've never seen this type of swap exist, so I thought i'd make one myself and see how it goes!

Are you a cat lover, or perhaps you'd like to add to your ATC collection and have a small set of cat's in it? Then this swap may be what you're looking for!!

Newbie's are allowed, I want to give them an artistic chance at this :) I WILL be checking profiles to make sure no flaker's get in. MUST have a well-filled out profile. I will angel if needed.


❀Sticker's ARE allowed, but only if their tiny decor stickers (They should be no bigger than a quarter.) Let's try and bedazzle these ATC's as best as we can, and avoid sticker slapping. This is an ARTISTIC swap. That mean's these ATC's should be embellished.

❀Your ATC MUST be cat related. Any media is allowed except for crayon's and crayola markers. ATC size's are 2.5" x 3.5". Make sure you have a sturdy background for your piece of art, and include a sheet/cover to protect them. You wanna keep these in good condition!

❀Make sure you include your swap-bot username, this swap's name, and date on the back of your ATC.

If you have any more question's about this swap, feel free to message or comment.

If this swap turns out well I may just continue a rotating animal series! Remember to have fun! Let's get artsy!!!

I do alot of illustrated ATCs and sometime use crayola fine tips to line the outside of my drawings is that ok?

Any chane you can host a international swap?? If not can I host on your behalf?

parakeetmails 12/17/2019 #

I preferably dont like crayola because I want to lean more on the professional side of things, but as long as it isn't an excessive amount of crayola I can let that pass. ;)

Angeliccat15, unfortunately I cant do international because of the prices. I may change that in the future, but right now I cant. You can most definitely host one, just please credit me as idea reference. Thank you!

No I mostly use just black to line it and I color with prismacolor & sargent art 😊

Go for it! :)

I'm looking forward to participating in this swap in the new year. The timing on this one comes at a very hectic time for the holiday and can't commit to being able to send this out by the 27th. I love the idea and hope you host more!

I agree with @kclicquot on the timing, but I also have a question on the types of media allowed. I carve my own stamps, which is the basis of my artistic creativity. I don't intend to sticker slap, but am kinda limited on the kind of embellishment I can do since the stamp will consume most of the card. Does that make sense? Is that insufficient for this type of swap?

parakeetmails 12/21/2019 #

@kclicquot Sorry about that inconvenience! I dont celebrate Christmas so the thought never really ran across my head haha. I can edit the swap and change the date times to make it a little more flexible for current swappers to ease it though:)

@SatisHuman As long as your ATC is cat related and looks partially fancy, then it is totally fine.

Just letting all current swap members know that I changed the swap deadline to January 5th to make it more convenient for other swappers. Have fun!
