Tuesday Throwdown #300: Anniversary Hop + GIVEAWAY

Good morning, friends and welcome to a very special edition of Tuesday Throwdown . It's our 300th Challenge and we are celebrating it with a BLOG HOP. A party will not be fun without prizes... and we have plenty to give away. More on that later.

I made an Art Journal Page celebrating summer with big blooms, bold colours and plenty of glitter and shine.  The background started with layers of gesso and acrylic paints. When completely dry, I stamped little twigs from Chocolate Baroque's Wild Meadow A4 stamp sheet with Saffron Archival Ink. Then I applied Ranger Texture Paste over TCW Mini Daisy Cluster stencil. To finish I lightly dabbed yellow and gold paint with my finger for that sun-kissed look.

Here's a closer look at the blooms. These are single stamps by Chocolate Baroque and I've used 3 different blooms called Daisy Ring Centre Flowerhead, Swirl Centre Flowerhead and Dotty Centre Flowerhead. I coloured the blooms with Distress Inks and rubbed some Distress Micro Glaze to fix the inks. And for that celebratory pizzazz I adhered gold glitter foam in the middle of a couple of the blooms.

The letters for Bloom and Shine are die cuts and I used Lawn Fawn's Cole's Alphabet dies on some blue glitter foam.

And now for the fun part: BLOG HOP PRIZES. I'm giving away a couple of unmounted rubber stamps by Chocolate Baroque.  All you have to do is complete the hop by leaving comments as you make your way through the list below:

START HERE: Tuesday Throwdown 
You are here: Asha Martins
NEXT STOP: Berni Cuttino

I will randomly choose a winner from all those who leave a comment on this post. Everyone is eligible and you don't have to be a follower to win. The prize is the Swirl Centre Flowerhead I used in my Art Journal project.

However, if you are a follower I will throw in a BONUS PRIZEDotty Centre Flowerhead. That means my followers get TWO unmounted stamps by Chocolate Baroque shown below:
Swirl Centre Flowerhead
Dotty Centre Flowerhead

The giveaway will close on Monday July 4th at 3pm Pacific Time. I will announce the winner  on Tuesday July 5th in my regular Tuesday Throwdown blog post. Please make sure I have a way of contacting you if you are the winner.

Thank you so much for stopping by and good luck with the prize draw.

Beijinhos!
