Swedish Style Trouble

How fun is this!!!!! There is a great challenge over at the Starving Artistamps Blog called Swedish Collage Style! What is that anyway, you may ask...well, there are a ton of fabulously talented Swedish card artists who have developed this very distinctive style and I love it!

The characteristics of the style are simple:
  1. Cards are square
  2. A BOLD mix of patterned papers is used
  3. Any language Chipboard Letters, title, buttons, staples are incorporated into the design
  4. COLOR Galore!! and it must be BOLD! No brown allowed, no distressing, just pure color!

I really need to get some chipboard letters...instead, I just printed a sentiment off my computer and went with a different language...Pig Latin!

The star of the card is Trouble, a member of the new Starving Artistamp Halloween Release, Witches Brew. Doesn't he look like trouble, tip toeing across the card?

Head over to their blog and check out their wonderful samples! and consider joining the fun!

stamps: Starving Artistamp Trouble, Witches Brew
