Fable Friends for Tic Tac Toe Challenge #TTTC056

Hello and welcome to my blog. I am so excited to be writing this as a Guest Designer for this week's Tic Tac Toe Challenge. The inspiration board looks like this:

I chose to use the column on the right hand side: Bow, Spring Sentiment, Rhinestones.

The card base is Seaside Spray and it's topped with a piece of Pacific Point Designer Series Paper. The squirrel from the Fable Friends set has been stamped with Stazon ink on Shimmery White card and watercoloured using an aquapainter with colours from a variety of ink pads. Once dry, it was cropped with one of the Layering Circle dies. 

To avoid the card becoming too busy I made a simple background. The Happy Spring sentiment was repeatedly stamped in Pacific Point on a piece of Seaside Spray card. The first image used full strength ink and the rest were second or third generations. This way the background has texture, yet remains completely flat.

To tie all the components together and to add some definition I used Pacific Point to mount both the background layer and the squirrel image. To finish the card, and add the final elements from the Challenge Board. I wrapped some Bakers Twine around the layers, added a bow and a single Noble Peacock rhinestone. 

Thank you for visiting today, I hope you approve! The card was fun to make - watercolouring is relaxing! I have thoroughly enjoyed being a Guest Designer on the Tic Tac Toe Challenge - follow the link to see more inspiration from the other designers.

  1. Super cute card :) I love the stamped of multiple sentiment, must give that a go :) many thanks for sharing :) x

    1. Thanks Anne. I love a good tone on tone background, but I don't usually use a sentiment! Could be used for any sentiment though.

  2. This is just adorable! I haven't used this set enough this year and you've inspired me to do so! Thanks for playing with my grid this week at Tic Tac Toe!

    1. So pleased to have inspired you LeAnne. I think this set lends itself to several of the lines on your board!
