The House That Stamps Built: Tic-Tac-Toe


Back for a weekly challenge at Repeat Impressions, this week is a
Tic-Tac-Toe with a lot of fun options.




No photo description available.

I went right down the right side, starting with a die cut Summer Flowers Background
by Die Versions, I inked it up with 3 blue Oxide Inks, spritzed it with water
(a new technique for me) and then Shimmer Spritz.  I stamped my most
used Repeat Impressions stamp Birthday Vertical and layered both of
 these up for dimension, adding pop  dots to the sentiment.  A silver curly
 ribbon finished my card off.
