Ink Splatter Card #2 and a Contest/Giveaway

If you came here for the Spellbinders' Summer Spectacular Blog Frenzy, please scroll down below or click HERE.

Hi, friends. I'm taking a computer break for several days, so this is a pre-scheduled post. In fact, I have a scheduled post almost every day. Let's hope blogger won't fail me :). While I'm away, let's have a giveaway, shall we? It's been a while since I had one and I missed my 3rd blog anniversary a couple of months ago.

Simply leave me a comment on my blog posts (one comment per post per person) from today until July 5th. I will pick 4 winners from the comments left on my blog to win the following prizes (one winner per prize).
Layers of Color's Sweet Silhouettes stamp set (retired)

A note about claiming your prize:
Everybody is welcome to comment and be eligible to win. I will announce the winners on  July 6 right here. Due to the number of prizes being given away on my blog and my dependence on my mom to do the shipping, I have to ask that the winners email (via Contact tab above) me with their info within 4 days (till July 10) in order to claim the  prize. This will help with organization and avoiding confusion. Thanks for understanding!

Finally, please consider liking the following Facebook pages.  The last 3 listed are companies that provided some of the prizes being given away today, so you don't miss the latest news and happenings:

Now onto my card...I'm showing you today my 2nd card using the Want2Scrap Silhouette - Old Time Tricycle with the ink splatter technique. As with my first card, I used the silhouette as a stencil. I just love the results, which give the illusion of multiple layers, esp with that collage patterned paper by Prima.
W2S-Card2
I layered the card front with Want2Scrap Manilla tag which was stamped with The Craft's Meow's Simply Delightful stamp set. I added small banner strips from paper scraps on top of that. The sentiment is Want2Scrap Chipboard Sentiments- Words of Love covered in white pigment ink. A vintage brad and some Want2Scrap Swirls, Finesse - Silver Rhinestones - 2 Pack - Self Adhesive finish the card.

I have two more cards to show you using the same silhouette shape. In the meantime, enjoy your day!
