SIP107 Tic Tac Toe!

Hi peeps!  It's Tuesday and time for another Stamp Ink Paper challenge!  This week, it's a tic-tac-toe! That's always a fun one!  Here we go:

No automatic alt text available.

I had this little blue panel sitting on my desk from a previous embossing paste experiment, so I paired it up with a wee little blue bird from Best Birds:

I stamped it in Basic Gray and colored it in with an aquapainter and Marina Mist ink; then I stamped the branch and leaves and colored them with Old Olive and Chocolate Chip.  I diecut them with the Birds & Blooms die, then added some speckles from Touches of Texture, a torn strip of Old Olive and some Old Olive-hued twine:

This will get added to my "Thinking of You" card stash!  I hope you'll play along too, and share you creation at the Stamp Ink Paper blog...check out what the others have created as well!

We set up the kiddie pool yesterday (although after three years, it has sprung a couple of leaks!) and that first filling of water is COLD!  Not sure how long it will hold up, but at least on these next few hot days, we can cool off a little bit!  We have VBS in the morning, so not much time to hit the big pool!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!
