This swap is a bit more challenging than your average ATC swap, so please pay attention to the instructions and the warning. We will be making one ATC for one partner. Your background will consist of at least 90 % book page in English and with this you create a piece of black out poetry. If you do not know what this is, you can look online; there are lots of examples. The simple explanation is this: you leave the words you want to use to form one grammatically correct sentence and colour the rest of the page. This does not have to be done literally with black, any colour is okay. Make the chosen words that form your sentence more visible, for example by outlining them or come up with your own creative way to highlight them. The extra requirements here are that you have to use all isolated words, so you can’t use groups of words that are next to each other (below each other is fine) and the sentence has to be creepy in some way. You can interpret the creepy factor whichever way you like. Then you continue to decorate your ATC, so it also looks pretty. Use the standard ATC size of 2.5 by 3.5 inches and make sure it is sturdy and in a plastic sleeve. Both landscape and portrait orientations are allowed for this swap. Please only participate in this swap if you are not easily offended in any way, because for this swap everything distasteful, creepy and offensive is allowed. Before I assign partners I will check profiles and ratings of participants in order to make the experience as safe as possible. New and unrated swappers with a well filled out profile are allowed to participate.
