Van Gogh Contest!

Remember back when we had our blog hop? One of the cards Irene designed was this fabulously colored countryside card:

As soon as I saw it I knew it would be a great technique for a challenge. I also though Irene should get lots of credit for the technique and what better place to show off a new technique but thru the Technique Junkies newsletter! I contacted Pat over at the newsletter and she was as excited about the idea as I was. The card quickly came down off Irene's blog as we had to pull it for publication, that was until today!

Pat and I hatched a plan. Technique Junkies would be publishing Irene's technique in the June issue of the technique junkies newsletter and together we would do a partnership challenge where our readers and their readers will get double the chance to win products from both of us by entering Van Gogh cards in both contests!

To enter OUR CONTEST you will need to design your own Van Gogh technique colored card (You do not need to use to Starving Artistamps images to be eligible to win) post a direct link to your card from your blog or art gallery in the comment section of this post. If you do not belong to a message board, have a blog, or have the ability to link to your card you can just post your comment and then email us the card to strvingartistmp@aol.com

Once you have entered our contest (by posting your card link to this post!)

You can head on over to the Technique Junkies:
http://patstamps.blogspot.com/2009/06/announcing-van-gogh-contest.html
and enter THEIR CONTEST for a second chance to win!

And what can you win from both of us?

A complete unmounted collection of our current new DoodleFactory release Oh Baby, You're Super! Containing the following stamp sets:

Oh Baby!
Super Parents
Neighborhood
Oh Baby, You're Super sentiments!

And a FULL YEAR free subscription to the technique Junkie's Newsletter!

Thats TWO chances to WIN!

The contest winners will close 12 Midnight (pacific time) June 15th 2009. Winners will be notified via blog post on June 16th, 2009.This contest is not open to Technique Junkie designer team members or Starving Artistamps Design Team members.

This was a huge challenge for me. I finally finised my card and posted it to SCS so my husband won't see it before Father's Day. Here it is.
