If the broom fits...

get on!!  that's what Hilda (that's my name for this witch in the new Witch Trio set by Starving Artistamps) seems to be doing in the moonlit sky over the dead trees.  I don't think my card turned out exactly how I had envisioned, it's splotchy because my 4 yr-old plus versamarker pen pooped out on me!  But I still think it passes, so here it is!!  It cracks me up, I love her striped knee socks & polka dot bloomers!  She was a lot of fun to color - do you see her blue eye shadow? 

Starving Artistamps has issued its first challenge to YOU whether or not you have Starving Artistamps or Doodlefactory stamps {bonus pts if you do} we want you to play!  

Here are the details: 
We are running our first ever company sponsored challenge and we are inviting all of our wonderful customers and readers to participate! The challenge will run until October 1st. Everyone who participates will be put into the raffle and one person will be chosen by random number generator to win YOUR CHOICE of one FULL SHEET of Starving Artistamps or DoodleFactory unmounted rubber stamps!

Here is your challenge should you choose to accept it!

If you are a regular visitor to our gallery you have on numerous occasions come across artwork shared by our customers. More than half of those are shared by our
swedish customers and involve a style we have come to name the "SWEDISH COLLAGE STYLE". We challengeyou to share a card with us that shows your version of theswedish collage style. Our design team will also be participating and their projects will be featured here and in our art gallery.

There are several key points which regularly appear inswedish collage style stamping...
  • the shape of the card is SQUARE
  • a bold mix of PATTERN PAPERS is used
  • CHIPBOARD titles (in any language!), BUTTONS and/or STAPLES are often incorporated into the design
  • COLOR COLOR COLOR the more color the better! (this is not your regular vintage style collage frequently done in the states! Ban the brown!)
Think you are up to the challenge?
Here is how you can participate. From now until October 1st email us a link to your blog showing your version of the swedish collage style challenge card. Please include your name in your email. We will post links to your blogs here and in the gallery.

Here is our email for questions and submissions:

See the post for a few examples of some of Tracey's personal favoriteswedish collage style cards.  Still not sure what swedish collage style stamping is? Visit our gallery and click the customer shared artwork link:

To make winning fair to all, each participant will get one entry into the raffle. We would LOVE it if you were inspired to do more than one card, but its still ONE PERSON per RAFFLE ENTRY.
But just imagine all the good karma that might come your way if you were kind enough to share more of your art with the community and we would be especially grateful if you helped us SPREAD the WORD about our challenge!
