The House That Stamps Built: Tic-Tac-Toe



Tic-Tac-Toe time at The House That Stamps Built:



I went with the top row: Shimmer/Sparkle, Dragonflies, and Dimension:



I started with creating a background  with distress oxide sprays, I
did some splattering and water stenciling on it. I then stenciled
Dylusions Fronds of Foliage stencil using Dreamweaver
Pearlescent embossing paste, I like how it picked up
the colors of the background. I finished it with a silver
embossed  Repeat Impressions Dragonfly Deco
 and  Someone Special   on vellum and a couple brads
from my stash.
