Another month, another game to play along with. This month it’s Tic Tac Toe, so lets see what you can come up with. Here is my take on this challenge and I’ve used the masculine, die cuts and patterned paper column.
Using Distress Oxides – ink blended three colours randomly over background. Repeat until desired colour depth achieved.
Making sure ink is dry (blast it with your heat gun to speed drying up), stamp Tiny Stars randomly over background using Versamark Ink, turning stamp around to achieve a more random layout of stars. Sprinkle embossing powder over, tap off excess and set with your heat gun.
Die Cut background using the Verso Frame (also diecut the cardbase using the larger die to have a slightly shaped card).
Stamp images on your preferred copic friendly cardstock and fussy cut up to stamped edges. Colours used as follows:
W0, W1, W3, W5
Spider and Shoes
V12, V14, V17
Cider jar, trim on wizard and tab
G12, G14, G16, G17
B000, B00, B02, B05 B18
E0000, E00, E02, BV01
C0, C1, C3, C5
shelf and tab
Blend copic ink over cardstock (using same blues and greens as in other images)
Die cut shapes
I initially coloured the stars but as I fussy cut the wizard out I realised that the stars were going to be too fiddly to fussy cut so I cut them off.
I still wanted the stars to feature so I stamped them onto a piece of acetate using Versamark Ink. Note: Make sure you use plenty of antistatic powder on the acetate to stop excess powder sticking to acetate – it’s tricky to remove otherwise.
Sprinkle on Fine Detail embossing powder and tap off excess. Heat set CAREFULLY with heat gun so you don’t melt the acetate.
Stamp Sentiments onto Scroll and Tab with Versamark Ink and sprinkle over embossing powder and tap off excess.
Zing Embossing Powder – Purple
Ranger Fine Detail embossing powder – White
Set with heat gun.
Using ATG adhere background to card base.
Adhere all images using a mix of glue and dimensional adhesive foam tape.
