It looks like the rest of the year is going to fly by. It always does. Creating and sharing slows things for me. How do you get through the holiday mayhem?
To spark my creating, I always look to challenges for inspiration. Today, I ran across the Joy of Sets and their latest Tic Tac Toe challenge –
Tic Tac Toes do really challenge me. But, not today! I looked at this board and knew exactly what I wanted to create –
I went with a straight line down on the board, CAS, Foil, and Monochrome. Score!!
It’s a beauty, isn’t it??
I used the Stamparatus to stamp the large image in Basic Gray. The center flower image and the outer leaves are all separate dies. I inked all those up in Smokey Slate, then stamped them. The way these stamps are made, it creates a natural shading with one stamp!
I die cut the image and placed it on a Silver Foil Edged Card. These help create quick cards with the silver detailing around the edge! The envelope even has silver around it as well!
I added the the sentiment in Real Red as well as the berries were colored with a Real Red Dark Blends marker.
Really easy to create several of these in no time!
