Tic Tac Toe Challenge

Hi everyone this week Hiding In My Craft Room has a fun challenge. It is to create your project using the items on a tic tac toe grid. Here is the grid.
The challenge is sponsored by .StarStampz They will be giving two images to the lucky winner Here are two of my cards using the Spring Bumblebee image they so generously provided the design team.

The striped embossed background is a retired Sizzix embossing folder. It was colored by sponging on Liquid Metal

The scallop border is from a die by Craftwell.

 The image is colored using Crayola and Tulip glitter markers.

I had a lot of fun with this card. The background is embossed photo paper. After embossing with my folder I got the photo paper wet and sprinkled yellow pigment powder and drops of Amber Fossil reinker.  After I got the look I liked I let it dry. Then I brushed on Walnut gel stain and then wiped part of it off.

I used a Sizzix die to cut my flowers out of an old dictionary page.

I brushed Stickles on the image background and colored with pencils the image.

Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you Happy Frugal Crafting till we meet again!.


  1. Two great cards. I really love the background on your second card. You're always experimenting.

  2. Both cards are so pretty but I love the background on the second one too. Great idea!

  3. As usual, you knocked it out of the park. Great cards! I love the fact that you are so adventuresome.
