Cards due by: October 15, 2009
Sign Up By: When all Spots are Filled
Mediums: Hand drawn or painted
Website: http://www.colourlovers.com/


The ColourLovers Challenge
Any style, Any subject, One colour palette


Instructions:
1. This swap is kind of like a PAT. Sign up for one or more groups (maximum of three) listed below. Don't over commit yourself because once you sign up, you can not withdraw. Make a card for each of the members of your group, excluding yourself. So, you're making three cards for your group and receiving three cards from the same group - a card from each member.

2. The cards you make for your group can be any subject and any style, but they must be made only using the colours of your colour palette. You can not subtract or add any colours to the palette and you must try to get as close to the colours as your media will permit. The only exception to this rule would be black and white for shading and outlines, only.

3. Make sure your real name, iATCs username, and the group number or title are on the back of each of the cards that you send in!

Mailing Info

1. I need help covering costs of this swap; postage is due as follows:

Canadian Players, send postage stamp(s)
American Players, send a well concealed $1 bill
International Players, I will cover your postage (but, if you have any american $1 bills kicking around that you'd send, I'd love ya for sending them!!)

2. SAE's are not required, neither are Address Labels... but make sure you write your FULL address on a note and stick it in there so that I know where to mail your returns to!! If you do send an Address Label, please make sure it isn't one of those tiny return address labels, and if it is handwritten that it is neatly printed.

3. Suggested Mail by Dates

Canada: October 1
USA: September 24
International: September 17


I am not a Post office worker and I can definitely not guarantee these mail by dates; they are just my suggestions from previous experience with receiving cards for swaps... mailing early is always best.

This sounds fun. I would like to join Group 1, if I can. This might be a silly question, but are we supposed to keep the colors of this limited palette completely separate, or can we blend them into each other?

Tlouey
07-07-2009, 11:34 PM
Great to have you :)

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by blending the colours... you dont have to just have the stark colours, but you can't be introducing completely new colours to the palette/scheme by mixing existing. Here's some examples...

Ok, I think I get it. Thanks.

Janet
07-08-2009, 02:34 PM
Confused !! Are you giving us the colour palettes ? Are the headings the names of colour palettes or themes? Having a foggy day sorry :)

Tlouey
07-08-2009, 02:42 PM
the images aren't loading for you?

TheeCoyote
07-08-2009, 03:47 PM
They aren't loading for me either. I have to right click--->show picture.

I must say, this is a very interesting way to approach inspiration--via a color palette. Not a direction I've ever come at it before.

I'd like to be in the Art of Marriage group, please.

ambermarie
07-08-2009, 05:59 PM
I like this idea! Really do. Love some of the color palettes... gonna wait and lurk.

Janet
07-08-2009, 09:16 PM
Ok, I've got the colours now so please join me up. I've done this before and like the challenge. Group 1 please :)

Ashazart
07-08-2009, 09:22 PM
I would like to join too. Please add me to the Art of Marriage group along with TheeCoyote.

Tlouey

Tlouey
07-12-2009, 11:00 AM

Ashazart

EraserQueen

Tlouey
07-14-2009, 04:22 AM

I was thinking any one of these would be fun...

Tlouey
07-14-2009, 05:36 PM
Oh, I'm definitely gonna participate. I was just gonna wait to fill in the empty spots.

TheeCoyote
07-14-2009, 06:25 PM
I like all the new color palettes.

Tlouey
07-14-2009, 09:16 PM

Patti

Mailed my cards today.

Ashazart
07-15-2009, 12:39 AM
Patti, will you be uploading scans of your cards? I'd love to see them!

Tlouey
07-16-2009, 02:24 AM
wow, Patti! That was super fast!

Patti
07-16-2009, 03:27 AM
Sometimes when something tickles my fancy, I have to get right at it and everything else just has to wait. These colors were a real challenge and I had such fun with them.

Tlouey
07-16-2009, 08:53 AM
glad to hear that!!! looking forward to seeing what you came up with :P

Amerasu
07-16-2009, 01:51 PM
Cynthia, that card seriously rocks! I LOVE it and wish I was in your group, lol!

Ashazart
07-16-2009, 01:53 PM
Thanks Sal!

Tlouey
07-16-2009, 04:56 PM

ambermarie
07-25-2009, 10:22 AM
Okay- if you do a group with Summer Wind, I'm totally in that one. If not, I dig Japan. :) Sign me up!

Tlouey
07-25-2009, 04:38 PM
received Patti's cards and they look wonderful :D

Ashazart
07-26-2009, 03:37 PM
I would sure love to see them. I don't think Patti uploaded any scans.

Ashazart
07-30-2009, 01:59 AM
Here is my second piece for group 3, the art of marriage. I see it as an odd combination of eroticism and...well...maybe a grenade. But then, passion is kind of like that at times, isn't it? ;) Anyway, I have titled it "Passion Fruit."

themuppet
07-30-2009, 05:32 AM
What a COOL idea! I'd love to Brave the Brain. :D

Tlouey
07-31-2009, 03:47 AM

Ashazart
08-22-2009, 01:37 AM
Here are all of my pieces grouped together for group 3, the Art of Marriage. I hope the recipients will be okay with the somewhat surrealistic bent they have. Sara, please feel free to select one as a hostess gift and can you please PM your address to me?

Whew, it feels good to finish a project! :jiggy:

Cynthia

Patti
08-22-2009, 02:56 AM

Tlouey
08-22-2009, 08:45 PM

Cynthia, I love each of those!!! So glad you chose to participate... and yes, it feels great to get projects done :D I PMed you my address... cant wait to see those puppies in person!

Anonova

Hi all! I would LOVE to try this swap under the first group, "Braving the Brain" if there's still room. This looks like great fun. :)

Tlouey
08-22-2009, 09:35 PM
Wonderful!! I look forward to what you will produce :D

Ashazart
08-22-2009, 10:31 PM
Got the PM Sara, thanks!

Anonova
08-23-2009, 08:01 PM
Okay! I hope I did this properly, but if not feel free to smack my hand with a ruler and tell me what to fix.
If it's all in order, could I please have the mailing address??

This was huge, HUGE fun for me! Thanks so much for hosting this.

Ashazart
08-23-2009, 09:19 PM

Ashazart
08-24-2009, 04:44 PM
Sara, mine went in the mail to you today! :jiggy:

Ashazart
08-24-2009, 04:46 PM
Oh, I neglected to put in a label (sorry!), but my address is on my business cards that are in the back of each ATC, as well as on the outside of the envelope. At least I did remember to put in the $1. :rolleyes:

Tlouey
08-24-2009, 05:19 PM
That's find, Cynthia, no need for an address label as long as I know where to send it to ;) I'm looking forward to seeing these cards in person!

Thank you Janet!!! :D

Anonova
08-25-2009, 02:31 AM
*phew!* Glad my cards are alright for this! I was a wee bit nervous. :)

As much as I would like to try the Japan swap as well, I seem to have come down with something nasty this week and am all wacky on flu meds (not as fun as it sounds). Maybe if I can get these cards in the mail this week...

Tlouey
09-01-2009, 08:58 PM
It is now September and with the Mail by dates starting to come into view on our Calendars, I'm wondering if we should try combining some of the smaller groups? or if we can try to get a few more members in the next week or so?

Janet
09-03-2009, 08:19 PM
My cards are ready to send. Just one for the 'Japan' group. What happens if someone else joins after I've sent them?

Tlouey
09-03-2009, 09:06 PM
If you wouldn't mind waiting one more week before mailing them, I'll close the groups next week... that way, we'll know for sure how many will be in the Japan group :)

Janet
09-03-2009, 10:42 PM
sounds good :D

Ashazart
09-04-2009, 05:54 PM
Hi Sara,

Have my cards arrived yet? I know it takes longer between the US and Canada, but hopefully, there is no snag. :)

Cynthia

Tlouey
09-04-2009, 06:36 PM
eeep, no, they haven't yet!
but Anonova's have... thanks so much for the extra card and the abundance of postage stamps... you rock!!!

Anonova
09-05-2009, 06:04 PM
You're very welcome, and thanks so much for being hostess-with-the-mostest!

Although I've come to realize that this ATC trading "thang" is highly addictive. :eek:

Tlouey
09-05-2009, 07:24 PM
yes! watch out! :p

liverson
09-06-2009, 07:36 PM

Tlouey

Tlouey
09-09-2009, 08:33 PM
Cynthia, your cards arrived today!!! :)

Ashazart
09-09-2009, 09:20 PM
Whew! I am glad. I was getting worried.

Tlouey
09-09-2009, 09:43 PM

OuP:

If you haven't closed this swap out, I can take one of the remaining Japan spots. Just let me know either way.

Amerasu

I mailed my cards out for Group 1-Braving the Brain on Wednesday.

Tlouey
09-14-2009, 08:27 PM
WONDERFUL! Yes, take a Japan spot! And I can take the other Japan spot if no one else wants it... I know my rule was only 2 groups, but we need that Japan group filled. If anyone else would like the Japan spot, they can have it, but otherwise, I'll take it :)

Tlouey
09-14-2009, 08:27 PM
fyrelyter, those are GORGEOUS!

Janet
09-15-2009, 11:44 AM
Eeeekkk!!!! I will have to move fast now. This is much harder than I expected. I feel constrained and intimidated with 'Japan'. 'Now where did I leave my inspiration?' :eek:

Tlouey
09-15-2009, 03:28 PM
I'm glad the group filled, though! Now at least you can receive the 3:3 cards like a regular swap :D

Sorry you're finding it so hard... I can empathize! I'm finding it super challenging as well! I guess I named this swap correctly... it definitely is a Challenge! I didn't think it would be this hard for me to come up with cards for these colour schemes... maybe I'm just thinking too hard :p

Tlouey
09-16-2009, 04:36 PM
I admit, they do look a little more simple than most of my cards.. I definitely spent as much time if not more on each of these cards, though. I think the Japan group was the easiest to come up with a concept for because that colour palette instantly made me think of robots and rockets.... however, it was hard to achieve and paint that dark blue with watercolours without getting really ugly brush stroke lines in my pictures. My "poisonous fruits" series amuses me the most, I think I might play with this idea some more later on!

OuP:
09-17-2009, 09:40 AM
Love your cards Tlouey!
And though this was a challenge, it was also a lot of fun! So thanks for hosting. :)

Amerasu
09-17-2009, 01:26 PM
Fyrelyter, those cards are so good! They look beautiful!

Tlouey - fantastic! I love the robots, lol.

themuppet
09-17-2009, 01:46 PM
Ohhhh everyone's cards are awesome. Fyrelyter, I really dig that zebra. And Tlouey, the card with just the single rocketship is freakin' fantastic!!

Tlouey
09-17-2009, 04:44 PM
Thanks! :d

Amerasu

In mail today but left one card with no sleeve. Im hoping that you could cover me on this one. I mail from work and it would be another day if I went back home. Sorry hope it is not to much to ask.

liverson
09-29-2009, 04:42 PM
How do you get the My blog, My etsy, links at the bottom of your posts... Tlouey I seem to only get one and its not even showing and that is a flicker adress.

Tlouey

Has anyone else finished their "Art of Marriage" cards for group 3? I haven't seen anything posted by the other members in my group. I am just curious (and excited) to see what the others have done with that color combination. ;) Everyone else's cards look marvelous and I wish I were in every group!

They're not splotchy in real life, I think my scanner is finally dying :(

Mupps: I WANT ONE!

We need to have another swap like this sometime!

I thought it was really hard... but fun! I'd totally do it again!

I'm bummed that you didn't scan yours, too :cry:

I hear ya sister, I think I picked the hardest freaking color combination LOL. Next time I think I would like to try a palette with more contrast..

I know, I feel like an @$$.

Tlouey,

I am sorry I have had a very upside down week. My cards will be going out in tomorrows mail. I meant to get them out much sooner. But they should still get to you before the 15th.

Tlouey

my scanner doesn't like those colours... so, here's some photos as well

Tlouey
10-07-2009, 02:32 PM
So, we're only days away from the due date... does everyone have their cards in the mail?

themuppet
10-07-2009, 02:41 PM
Yes'm!

EQ, I love that crazy jellyfish. WANT!

EraserQueen

Thanks Sara! My scanner always turns that spring green color into yellow too :eek:

Tlouey
10-08-2009, 05:50 AM
I hate that! I used to make Piccolo Cyberpet drawings and use a lot of that spring green colour from my prismas and it never scanned right... but even my watercolour pictures that are greeny yellow don't scan well.

Ms Art Lady
10-08-2009, 01:22 PM
Tlouey, Have my cards arrived yet? You should be getting them any time now.

Sally

Tlouey
10-08-2009, 02:52 PM
I didn't make it out to the mail box yesterday, so, they could have arrived and I haven't seen them yet. I will try to get out there today. We've been having some really crumby weather this week... and going out means bundling up a baby and a toddler. :p

Ms Art Lady
10-13-2009, 04:41 PM
Still no cards from me yet? I am a bit worried. I really thought they would make it in plenty of time. :(

Tlouey
10-13-2009, 05:07 PM
Yesterday was thanksgiving, so the mail has not yet come this week. :)
Although, if you mailed them on the 30th, I wouldn't worry yet, anyway... it's normal to have mail take 2 weeks from the US to Canada.

Tlouey
10-16-2009, 02:26 AM
just waiting on a few more cards to come in and we can do the big swap :D

Tlouey
10-21-2009, 02:18 AM
I am still waiting on some cards to come in before I can swap. Hopefully they'll be here before the end of the week!!

Tlouey
10-25-2009, 05:10 PM

Tlouey
10-25-2009, 09:22 PM
EVERYONE's cards were fantastic!!
Here's the swap gallery image... sorry that I couldn't include every single card on it, because they were all definitely worth showing off!

Tlouey
10-26-2009, 06:20 PM
I did all the swapping out with a crying baby in my arms the other day... and it looks like I missed photographing tow groups because of it... sorry!!! But if that's the worse mistake I made with this swap, than we can all be happy, heh :eek:

I think I forgot to mention that I received my cards about a week ago, haha.
They're really great! I love them all. And the little extra was great too.
Its exciting to see my small collection grow.
Thank you everyone from my group, and extra thanks to Tlouey!

Tlouey

I really should make one for myself as well. Its a rarity I work with so few colors, but they turned out really well. Made me think about my shading all the more.

Nope, no cards yet! I'm sure they'll be around soon. We also don't check it real regularly, about once a week.

Look forward to them though!
