Black Rose Artichokes and some Birthday Blog Candy!


Black Rose Artichokes...I bet you're wondering what that's all about huh? It's this weeks Color Challenge 209 on SCS, and it's perfect for the new Passion Flower set from Innovative Stamp Creations. Passion Flower is not being released until March 13, but you have a chance to win it from me as MY Birthday gift to you!




I used the Marker Watercoloring Technique to color the flower, then cut it out and popped it up on dimensionals on my base card. I used Little Specks as my background stamp.






To enter to win my Birthday Blog Candy, just leave a comment on this post by 11PM CST on Sunday, March 15th and you'll be entered into a random drawing to receive the Passion Flower Plate shown here. I'll have the random number generator pick my winner! Because Blogger does not store email addresses, be sure to check back on Monday, March 16th to see if you've won! One comment per person - thanks!

Details:
Stamps - Innovative Stamp Creations - Little Specks, Passion Flower
Ink - Black Archival, Markers
Card Stock - Black, Artichoke, Rose Red, Watercolor
Other - Aquapainter, Dimensionals, Cutter Kit, Eyelet Border Punch, 1/4" Circle Punch

Happy Birthday Lisa(oops belated - I just looked at my clock)! And most of thanks for giving us the gifts. First your inspiration and expertise and now some really fun candy. I know I've won before but a girl can hope for a repeat right?

Repetition works for some. After all my Aunt is still celebrating her 39th birthday and she's approaching 70! (We're encouraging her to embrace the concept of 50 this year so that some year soon she can collect Social Security - LOL!)

Hugs, prayers and blessings - Jean

Lynne said...

Happy Birthday Lisa. I check into your blog every now and then and when I saw this, I just knew it had to be ISC. It has Betsy written all over it. Wish I had time to stamp something now and then. I'll enter my name, but it will be a while before I would get to use it.

Have a super happy special day...
