Default New Blinkie Palette Posted!!

Blinkie Contest
The long awaited palette for the blinkie is here! It was a tough choice since both the khaki green and steel blue headers are beautiful but the steel blue header won out. I will be changing the colors and graphics for the site through out the day but it might create a bit of a speed problem since some people will have to clear their caches to see them (BTW, I will have an update on what we are doing to keep us up to speed later today.) I posted the specs that Lori had in the thread below but the deadline has changed and I added a few other things so please read it again. I am so excited about the new blinkies, they will be the final pieces of our new look.

Blinkie Palette




With our site's new look, comes the need for new blinkies. I made our current ones, but I'm really not a good blinkie maker. I know there are better blinkie designers out there who can create some really SAS-y blinkies.

In total we need three blinkies. A general Stone Accents Studio blinkie, a Creative Team Blinkie, and a Designer Blinkie.

If you want to incorporate the button stones in your design you can download them here.

You may post more than one entry of each type needed (Stone Accents Studio, CT, Designer.)

The blinkie should incorporate the provided color palette. To get the colors into your document use your color picker or eye dropper tool to sample the colors.

All blinkies should be sized at 150x50 pixels.

All blinkies should contain the store web address.
www.stoneaccentsstudio.com

The selected blinkies will become the property of SAS.

We'll let you be creative with the rest, but SAS should play in somewhere.

Now let's get to the good stuff... prizes. Each winning blinkie will receive 6 SAS free Mega Kits or your choice. Have all the mega kits already? No problem. You'll have a year from the date of issue to collect your six. If you design more than one winning blinkie (example, the store and the CT) you'll receive both prizes (12 mega kits in this example). In all we'll be giving away 18 mega kits for 3 blinkies. Everyone who submits a blinkie will receive a thank you gift. So everyone comes away a winner.
Blinkie submissions are due by midnight the 27th to give us time to select the winners and announce them before our birthday bash is over.

Default Some Answers

OMosh, I like what I see already, it will be tough to choose. As for where to put them, unless Janalyn or Lori has a better idea you can just post them in this thread. The issue of using SAS designers' products in a blinkie could be a problem any JulieO or mega kit elements can be used but you would need to have permission from the SAS designers to use their designs, I will ask them and post a list of them as they answer.

Update
Here are the designers that I have heard from, they all said it is OK to use elements from their kits for the blinkies.
Ellen
Cathy C
Stella
JulieC
Candee
Erika
Barbara
Brenda
Sherah (see post 11 below)

All papers and elements from SAS-y Download-a-day (DAD) except for the butterfly which is from me.. Some of the elements are recolored.

This is my first ever animation. I know there is still a lot to work on, but i'm happy with it though it took me forever to make it.

FAN Blinkies

(update) just found a way to make the wings flutter.
