AAA Cards Challenge #114 - Tic Tac Toe

Hello. It is time for a new challenge at AAA Cards Challenges and Maaike picked the challenge of Tic Tac Toe.

This was a fun challenge! For my card, I used gold, watercolours and flowers.

To start this one, I took some watercolor cardstock and layered a few watercolors of blue and pink over it. Then I stamped the flowers with versamark and embossed them with gold. I used a rectangular die to trim it down and added the sentiment with some more embossing powder. I matted the panel to a top folding A2 white card.

Stamps: My Favorite Things - Pretty Poppies
Inks: Mijello Watercolors - Prussian Blue, Permanent Rose; Versamark Ink
Misc: Recollections EP - Gold

Our sponsor this fortnight is Stamplorations and our guest designer it Tiya. Stop by Tiya and the rest of the design team's blogs for some inspiration :)

I am sharing this card at Addicted to CAS #135 - Gold
