Okay this is a swap for others like me who are new to ATC's....I have tinkered with a few and they aren't awesome but I think they are pretty good for a first timer. So I figured I would start a swap for those of you who are like me and in the same boat.

This one's theme is.....GREEN, anything that is GREEN....could be trees, could be the band Green Day, etc etc. Use your imagination and come up with the best ATC you can. You will have 1 partner for this swap.

This swap welcomes people who are familiar with ATC's and make them, but please understand that this is for BEGINNERS and you may not get one the same quality you send out:) It's a learning process:)

Newbies welcome with filled out profile......Being that ATC's are fairly cheap to send, I am opening this up to international swappers as well:)

How many ATCs do you need to make for the one partner?

You should put information on the back of the card, like your user name, name of the swap, your location, date, how many of these same cards you made (1 of 4), and the card should be on card stock. I'm new too, did I miss anything? Just google "artist trading cards" and you will have all the info you need. If you do an image search you will see hundreds of examples.

I found a really good seller of ATC-related products. PM me if you would like the information. (I am not sure if I can put the information here, but I just purchased some things from her and the service was tremendous!)

Thanks @twobluecrows @BrendaMarie @missmaximus for answering all of @kawaiifiend questions:)

They did do a great job! but one more sneaked up on me last night when i was starting it. Does the entire thing have to be green, or can it have a little scene with green in it? example grass....trees. green is most of the card and there are little decorations. i just want to make sure i am following rules and i do my first one right!

@kawaiifiend They can be anything as long as they are, let's say mostly green:)
