One of my favorite things about collecting LTCs is seeing how the abilities and creativity of the LTC creators have changed over time. One of the most immediate ways that you can see this is by taking part in a “Then & Now” swap. In these swaps, participants have to make a card featuring two related/similar stamps carved at different periods in time.
It’s always important to make a good impression. You don’t want to come across as weak, shaky, or disconnected. Instead, you want to be powerful, even, and striking.
Spoiler Alert: This post contains a picture of my LTC for the upcoming silhouettes swap hosted by The Red Cat.
