1  Re: 50 Projects 2015 --POST YOUR 2015 Lists in Craftalongs by bunny1kenobi on: Today at 05:40:13 AM

I made this ATC in the ongoing ATC swap last month. *Warning* Long, potentially boring research follows:

In Egyptian mythology, when you die, you are taken by Anubis to the Scales of Ma'at, where your heart is weighed against her Feather of Truth.  If your heart weighs exactly the same as the feather, it means you have not sinned.  You also have to repeat the "Negative Confession", which is a list of 42 sins that you say you have not committed.  In fact, the first on that list is, "I have committed no sin", which is what is written in heiroglyphs in the background of the atc, going from right to left as was done when the characters are left-facing.  Also, the left-facing glyphs indicate that the person is speaking to the individual on the left, which in this case is Ma'at herself. (She is featured in "relief", which is also common in ancient Egyptian art.) If your heart weighs more than the feather, then a demoness named Ammit, who is part crocodile, lion and hippopotamus, will eat it and your afterlife will be over.  Brings a whole new meaning to "light-hearted", doesn't it?

You and your partner DO NOT have to find the same commonality! This will be a great way to "meet" new people and make some new crafty friends.

7  Curiosity Cabinet in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by bunny1kenobi on: February 19, 2015 07:18:41 AM
I made this for sheepblue in the ongoing ATC swap, and I think it turned out pretty cool!  *Note: I didn't draw the images, just made the paper look aged and made the "cabinet" itself. 

The knobs turn to reveal these images as well:

Prompt: Feb Stamp the Yard
Team: WORDY!!
Bonus Points: -0-
Project Name: Happy Black Friday
Project Link: (if available)
Brief Description: I made this for the Feb ATC swap for blupaisan. I've never seen her on this thread so I'm crossing my fingers that she won't see this prematurely.  Her theme was "unlikely greeting cards".  The stamp in question is on the back.  And I made the ATC sized envelope, as well.  Smiley

I'm so glad you like your card, gozer!  Grin

And guys, I'm a TOTAL zipperhead today!  I did a painting for gozer a while back and she used it to make some ATC backs for me!  She sent them along with the plague doctor card and I didn't post pics!  Which is really sad, coz I LOVE them, and I think it was super thoughtful of her to make them for me!

So here they are! (BTW, Gozer, you ROCK!)
