Weekly Giveaway: Pearl Earring

I am thrilled to have these gorgeous stamps to giveaway this week. Our Sponsoring Giveaway vendor is Chapel Road/Class Act Stamps. This stamp company is two combined -- Chapel Road Artstamps, and Class Act Stamps. Carol Harrison owns them both -- make sure to take a peek at both websites for some great stamp eye candy!

The set above, Girl with a Pearl Earring, is a representation of the painting by Johannes Vermeer. This stamp set is on the Chapel Road site. With these stamps, you can start your own "museum" of stamped images : ) The original painting is on display at the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague, though!

The card I made with these beautiful stamp uses the Dragged Madras Technique from the April 2009 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I have to tell you, when I developed that technique, I had envisioned it as a accent background for "fun" style stamps. And yet here, with more somber colors, it works pretty darn well with these elegant stamps, doesn't it?
Okay, just for fun, when you leave your comment to enter the drawing for these stamps, let me know ONE of two things: take a browse through the Chapel Road site and tell me which stamps you love most OR let me know what museum in the world you are dying to visit : )
Carol at Class Act has a great offer for you, too: If you purchase 2 Chapel Road Artstamp sets, you will receive a 10% discount OR If you purchase 3 or more sets, you receive a 15% discount. Make sure to let Carol know that you found this from the Technique Junkies!
