So, this is the second in a series of INK BOX CARDS with a TWIST. If you missed any, don't worry ... you can join at any time. If you're new to this idea, an ink box card is similar to an ATC in every way except size. Ink box cards are 3"x3" squares, the same size as the Tim Holtz distress inks, & the 4 corners are rounded. If needed, you can refer to this video:


So, the usual rules apply: an ink box card is 3"x3" with rounded corners. Like ATCs, you start with a light cardboard, such as a cereal box, for a bit of stability. Then create your art by using mixed media, paint, ink, lace, fabric, whatever you like. This is a little piece of art you create & then send to a partner. Be proud of your art & make it beautiful!

Here's the TWIST. Each card will be very different, as each card will have a different "theme" or element, which will be the main focus ... just like our ATC Swaps with a Twist. For this month, we will create 3 different Ink Box Cards as follows:

Card #1: Add a star.

Card #2: Add a bit of sheet music.

Card #3: Add a favorite quote.

. On the back of your cards, add the swap name, your name, your Swap-Bot name, & the date you made it, to each ink box card. Please also add your address to the back -- at the very least, your town & state or town & country. (I enjoy looking back at the cards I receive & see who made them for me. So if your name & at least your town/state/country is not on it, I will never know where it came from a year from now.)

NOTE: slapping on a sticker or 3 is not acceptable, & neither is pasting on a picture. You must do something creative to it! Any questions, please PM me.

This swap is open to all members with a 4.98 or higher rating. (And, honestly, we don't have any members with lower than a 4.98 rating.)

And do not disappoint me or your partner by not fulfilling your obligation to send 3 lovingly-made ink box cards.

But, most of all, have fun!
