If you have been following along, you will know that I have been participating in Artist Trading Card swaps for the past 8 months or so. Well, this month I got to be hostess!! Being hostess is soooooo much fun!! The best part is seeing all the cards in person!! They are so much more beautiful, and elaborate in person than you are able to see in the scanned or photographed image of them. Seeing them all in person lined up is VERY impressive!!
I also quite enjoyed the envelopes they arrived in. Some were colorful, some were stamped, some had funny titles addressing me. I need to follow suit next time and make sure I make my envelopes just as fun and colorful!
This month we also started something new. We decided to have an inchie swap. An Inchies is just what it sounds like- it is a piece of art that is an inch square. And yes, as I reminded my buddies several times while trying to make an inchie of my own- an inch is VERY small . I spaced on getting pics of all the inchies, so I apologize. It is even more amazing to see how detailed the inchies can be!!
Here is the roll call of these gorgeous ATCs….
