Good Afternoon. It's a lovely sunny day here in Yorkshire and I hope the sun is shining wherever you are.
I'm here today to share with you a card that I've made for the 'Tic Tac Toe' challenge over at Vintage Stamping. This is a new thing to me but I thought it was I great idea to be able to choose the different options, although in some ways it was harder to make the final decision. In the end, I chose: People, Metal Brads and Blue and Brown.
I think that blue and brown are a fabulous colour combination and so my first task was to make the background, I used Ink Dusters to give a gentle dusting of Memento Teal Zeal over the white card and then used various stamps from Inkylicious' Elements1 set to create my background design. I used the Teal Zeal, Memento Rich Cocoa and Distress Tea Die to do this. As the background is quite busy, I decided to make the tag quite simple. The face is also from the Elements 1set and the sentiment is Oriental Awakening by Inkylicious. I made the flower by using my Spellbinders Delicate Asters stamps and dies. I used the same blue colour to continue the theme and then finished the card by adding brass brads to each corned and a diamond brad to the center of my flower. It was still missing a little something and so I used a couple of die cut brown swirls to give me card the completed look. Here's the finished card:
