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 challenge you to share a card with us that shows your version of the swedish 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 in swedish 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. (if you do not have a blog you can upload to any card gallery and email us that link) We will post your links here and on the company blog http://www.starvingartistamps.blogspot.com/
Here is our email for questions and submissions: firstname.lastname@example.org
