Hi everyone! It's Thursday and that means it's time for a new Tic Tac Toe challenge! Here's our grid from Betty and Team X for today:
I chose the bottom row across of Watercolor, Bright Colors and Floral. And here we go, with another Christmas card for the year:
I chose the retired Poinsettia Petals for my florals; I heat embossed them with Versamark, Real Red and Garden Green ink, then watercolored them in before diecutting.
I used the diecuts to create a Diamond Flip fun fold that I first saw on my creative friend Cindy's blog. You can see her directions here. Here is the card partially open:
I used some Boughs of Holly and Garden Green DSPs for my layers, and I also embossed the Real Red panel with the Greenery EF, but it's hard to see. And here's the inside:
I stamped a few holly leaves directly on the DSP, and I will warn you: even though I blotted the ink before closing my card, I still got a little on the sentiment when I closed it. I added a few more "sprinkles" by flicking my aquapainter with some watered-down GG ink on the rest of the sentiment! My final addition was some sequins from my stash and a diecut sentiment banner!
I am also entering this at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, where they're looking for watercoloring!
I hope you'll find a fun Tic Tac Toe "recipe" on our grid with which to create something this week! We can't wait to see what you create! Share it with us at the TTT blog! Thanks for visiting today!
We saw my great-nephew Cole yesterday for the first time! Cassidy was in heaven:
Once she got the hang of how to hold him close and snuggly, he went right to sleep! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
