Wonderful Wednesday Giveaway - I Brake For Stamps!

Today is a "times 2" giveaway -- We are giving away these two wonderful women from I Brake for Stamps. The two stamps today's lucky winner will receive are Mona Lisa, and the Geisha, along with the two cards shown here. Each of these images are bigger than they appear here -- Mystic Smile is 2-3/4" x 4-3/4", and The Geisha Collage is 3-1/4" x 4-1/4".

...And because I Brake for Stamps is so generous, these stamps are on sale for us this week at 40% off -- plus there is so much more there on sale for 25% - 35% off, too... Click here for the sale page. It just so happens that there is a terrific technique coming in the August issue that woks best with these collage-style images, too.

Since today kicks off the Technique Junkie Newsletter "BOGO Sale" (Buy One, Get One Half Off), I thought it was fitting to show some new art using older techniques, and to show some with new techniques, too. The best thing about this is that all of these techniques are TIMELESS -- you can use them today and your artwork is still current!

The Mystic Smile Card card to the right features the AI Float Technique (June 2008 Technique Junkie Newsletter, courtesy of Ann Clack) in the background. The main image is colored with Markers, Gamsol Pearls, and Sakura Glaze Pens (I have been using this ALOT recently). She's a little sparkly, too, since I popped some glitter pen around her edges.

The other card to be given away takes us WAY back. The geisha image on the left was colored with a combination of stippling and markers. The Out of the Box Technique (October 2004 NL) was used to highlight the image. To really time travel, I used the Saran Wrap Technique on the background of this card -- its one of the online-bonus techniques on the 1st edition CD, published in 2003. Why not add that CD to your BOGO list!?!

Okay, want to know how the stamps and cards could be yours?
