Tic Tac Toe

Don't you just love a good game of Tic Tac Toe?  That is the challenge this week at The Paper Variety. I love this challenge, though it is always hard to made the choice of which challenge to do. For this one, I did row three down. Emboss, make a card, and die cut.

I did the embossing and die cut in one, using the Spellbinders dies. While it was still in the template, I inked the inside edges. After stamping the image and adding the tiny types, I coated the die cut with Distress crackle paint in clear rock candy. Once dry, I went over it again with distress inks and used a damp paper towel and softly rubbed it off, leaving the ink in the cracks. I love how it turned out.

If you want tiny cracks as I did, apply a lighter coat. The thicker the coat, the larger the cracks.

The roses and seam binding started out white. I used my water pen and distress inks to dye them to fit my needs.

Now head on over to The Paper Variety to see which row or column will challenge you. The sponsor for this challenge is Crop Chocolate.

Thanks for stopping by!
