Today we have a great new tic tac toe board over at Tic Tac Toe Challenge! I love to play this challenge because you have so many choices when making your project. Here’s the board for this week:
For my card I chose the last row at the bottom: square – die cut – dots. The leaves and the blue lace and rectangle were cut from the Petals & More Thinlits Dies. I love both of these dies and, BONUS!, they are carrying over into the new catalog! Yippee!
For this card I used a bunch of dies and stamp sets 🙂 The flowers were stamped and cut from the Beautiful Bouquet Bundle (stamp set and dies are also carrying over). The sentiment is from the Beautiful Day stamp set. I really like the font!
Technique Tip: The feature color here is the beautiful Daffodil Delight. Do you see the watercolored panel underneath all the “goodies’? It’s really easy to do with an Aqua Painter and a bit of ink from the Daffodil Delight ink pad. With the ink pad closed, simply press the center of the case on both sides. This deposits a little bit of ink into the lid of the case. Then with the Aqua Painter you put a drop or two of water into the lid. This creates the “wash” that you then brush across the panel of Shimmery White paper. Let it dry naturally (like your hair!!) or blow it with the blow dryer/heat tool! Hee hee!!
There are so many fabulous products that are retiring, including some beautiful colors. Be sure to check these out and get what you want before it’s gone. Especially the color products – they go fast! CLICK HERE to see everything that’s retiring.
