Default September 2010 Sketch Challenge Hosted by Starving Artistamps

***the September Sketch challenge is officially closed! Please visit the October Challenge hosted by Bombshell Rubber Stamps***


Your entry was chosen by random number generator
as our September sketch challenge winner!!!

Please contact us and let us know which FOUR sets of Backlit Bloom Jumbo Silhouette flowers you would like for your prize!

Thank you to all of our contestants and thank you to all the members on our design team who have helped to provide inspiration during the challenge! (design team cards were not counted in the random drawing)

September 2010 sketch challenge is hosted by Starving Artistamps, inc.

A winner will be chosen by random selection to receive their choice of any THREE sets from our brand new collection of Backlit blooms. Our backlit blooms are generously sized silhouette flowers designed for big, bold, quick and easy cards. They are the stamps you will grab when you need to make a card at the last minute and run out the door. They are also the perfect size to use as stems for 3D flowers (like Primas) See our sample below to get an idea of how that looks.

The details:

~ One entry per participant.

~ Feel free to use any stamp line of your choice.

~ Starving Artistamps designers and affiliates are not eligible to participate in the random drawing, but they will be participating and posting their challenge cards for inspirational purposes.

~Submit your card anytime during the month of September by posting in this thread.

If your entry includes any Starving Artistamps images you can choose another free Backlit Bloom set of your choice! Thats FOUR sets of stamps just for making one card! So break out your Starving Artistamps, DoodleFactory, Juniper and Jupiter or Antidepresstamps stamps for this months challenge!

~The random drawing will be done October 1st, 2010 and posted on this thread no later than October 3th, 2010.

I'm on Tracey's design team so I'm not eligible for the prize drawing...this one's just for fun!

Great cards, Tracey and Dawn!

My card uses the Backlit Blooms Rose. I colored the rubber direct with my watercolor crayons and then placed the stamp onto a piece of moist watercolor paper and let it sit for a few minutes. I love the way it came out, and easy too!

Wow Dawn and Donna!! Isn't it amazing how totally different a sketch can look in different people's hands. Dawn you really expanded on the sketch and totally made it your own. Donna that Rose looks lovely, you make me want to break out my watercolor crayons!

Great cards. I noticed on the site that they are unmounted. Are they trimmed? Thanks.
