Tic Tac Toe

I have made up my mind to try and use my older stamps more, instead of letting them gather dust on my shelf! I found this Etched Flower cling from Hero Arts so decided to make another card for the Hero Arts Tic Tac Toe Challenge this month.  The line I have chosen is Circles, Birthday, Favorite Colour and here is my finished card.  The background on the flowers is made by making a square grid of copic colours and then splashing them with some alcohol blending ink. I then stamped in black my Etched Flower.  The out side circle is from my scrap basket and is the Graph Background, white embossed and then coloured with copics.

Have a great week.

After seeing some beautiful poppies growing on the grass verges as we drove back from our weekly shop this morning I was inspired to get out this old Hero Arts poppy stamp.  The new challenge at Hero Arts for June is Tic Tac Toe.

I decided to follow the bottom row, watercolour, tag and my favorite colour (RED).  The poppies were stamped using Distress Markers and when dry I added some water colour with a paintbrush and my Distress Stains. After lots of goes to get it right I am pleased with the final image (lots of smudged designs lol).
