Baja Fifth Flower+ Candy!


It's my 100th post and that means it is time for some blog candy!! But first my card...

Here is a card I made inspired by Angela R. over at Splitcoaststampes. Her card caught my eye when I saw it, so I decided to make one of my own, but change a few things.

The colors on my card are Baja Breeze, Basic Black and Whisper White. You may think you see gray, but it is not, it is Basic Black card stock with a layer of vellum over it.

The background of the card was made by stamping the big flower, from the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set, multiple times in Black Staz On onto the Baja Breeze card stock.

The main image was stamped with Black Staz On onto watercolor paper and then aqua painted with Baja Breeze and the then cut out using my craft and rubber scissors.




The ribbon is Black Organdy ribbon with white Rub-On dots rubbed on my me! I think it came out really well, and it was super easy to do! The sentiment is also a Rub-On. The bottom is finished off using the Eyelet Border punch.


Now some blog candy...

It is four sheets of Watercolor Paper and an Aqua Painter Pen from SU! I love using the Watercolor Paper and the Aqua Painter Pen to color images in with!

All you have to do to get a chance to win this is leave a comment about my card and your name will be entered into the random drawing. You have until Thursday May 7 at 9:00am (mountain time).

Good Luck and Thanks for Looking!

I've seen this rose all over blog land...it is beautiful! I think I may have to break down and buy this set after all. I don't own an aqua painter so would love to win one so I could give this technique a try. Thanks for the chance to win. jmniffer

I like the colors! The vellum over black made a neat way to create a 'gray.'
