PP355 - Tic-Tac Toe Challenge from Laurie/Joanne


Hello ! I'm so happy to be joining in on the Paper Players Tic tac Toe challenge ! I have chosen the   diagonal line birthday , enamel dots and blue for my card .




I simply adore the Oh So Eclectic bundle and am excited to share my card with you today . I have mounted a piece of Naturally Eclectic DSP onto my Berry Burst base and die cut my Lemon Lime Twist piece before adhering it to the DSP. Did you spot the tiny Soft Sky flowers around my sentiment ? Too cute ! If you have a card you'd like to add to the challenge here is the link

Just Add Ink #370..."Sketch"


 Hello and welcome to the Just Add Ink challenge .

Just Add Ink #370..."Sketch"


I decided to have another play around with the soot technique - it's  really easy , if a little daunting ! Just take some glossy card stock and take it back and forth through a candle flame until your card stock is all black and sooty ! Be careful no to touch it except on the very edge - its good to begin with a larger piece for this reason . Then stamp your image straight down , applying a little pressure to be sure you get a great result . You will then need to seal this piece and hair spray is sufficient for this or you can go all out and purchase a clear sealant .
I love the Mediterranean Moments stamp set and it works really well with this technique .
For this card I stamped some flourishes in Pear Pizzaz before applying the soot technique   . I think the branch hanging down with its gorgeous little flowers adds a beautiful final touch to my card oh and did you notice I left the burnt ends of my ribbon to tie it all together ?

Now to my card


I water coloured my background and initially it was way too dark and nothing I put with it was making me happy . I gave it another generous spritzing washing the colour out some more and when it dried I was super happy with it .  I ran it through the big shot using one of my favourite embossing folders , Softly Falling . To add some sparkle ,  I took my embossing paste and mask and then added some silver glitter while the paste was still wet . It is a Christmas card and who doesn't want sparkle for Christmas right ? I grabbed my Eastern Palace dies , my newly arrived Foil Frenzy DSP , some Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate and my Decorative Ribbon border punch and some mini sequin trim and put it all together until I was happy with the result . I used the baby wipe technique on Glossy White for my  die cut trees . I hope you find some inspiration from my card you have seen today .
