ATC Challenge!!

Up for a challenge?? This is for you!!

Swap Sign Up: From now until May 8th (3 weeks) - Partners assigned between April 30-31
Swap Deadline: Your ATC must be sent by May 29th (3 weeks)

You will make one standard size fabric ATC (2.5" x 3.5") for your partner. You can use any techniques, methods and embellishments to create your fabric ATC. The ATC base should be fabric stiffened with interfacing or a cardstock backing.
See our tips for creating a fabric ATC.

Note: I am making this swap for fabric ATCs only at this stage, however may open it up to mixed media options if there is not enough interest.

Now for the challenge part: I will give you the last 5 words from Illustration Friday's weekly topics. You should use at least two of these themes when creating your ATC. Be creative!

The words are: Journey, Bottled, Duet, Toy, Cultivate

Be sure to include a note with the name of this swap and your Swap-bot ID so that your partner can rate you when they receive your art. Also include a description of your interpretation of the theme.

Any embellishments welcome!! For example: embroidery, quilting, sewing, beads, findings, paint or ink - anything you can apply to your fabric.

You may start making your ATC immediately (and have up to 6 weeks to complete it) or wait until partners are assigned and review your partners profile to personalize your ATC for them.

Newbies welcome.
If you have any 1 or 3 ratings please contact me first.
Remember if you join in you are making a commitment to the swap!

My original idea was to limit this to only two topics where both must be used, however I want to see how this will go and if you enjoy the challenge so please provide some feedback here.
