Pastel love

Happy Wednesday!!  It's time for another challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a fun Tic Tac Toe board for you:
No photo description available.

  Here is what I created for your inspiration:
After sketch challenges, I think tic-tac-toe challenges are one of my favorites.  There are always a bunch of fun options to use.  I used the bottom row: stencil, vellum, hearts and I also used gems/pearls, pink and dimension.  My card started with a sketch and then I found a scrap of patterned paper (the floral piece) and that gave me my color combo (plus the fact that I knew I needed to use some pink).  I used a striped stencil and my Spectrum Noir markers in pink and turquoise on the left-hand side of the card.  The turquoise ended up being too bright and really drew your eye away from the focal point of the card, so I covered it with a piece of vellum which softens it, but still lets the color show.  On the right hand panel, I stamped the heart from "Love Stencil" repeatedly and then stamped the Postcard stamp over top.  I lightly inked the edges with gray.  Then I took a piece of vellum and embossed it with an embossing folder so it would stand out from the stamped background.  I finished it all off with a die cut heart, a love sentiment (popped up on some foam tape) and some pearls,

Thanks for stopping by!  Make sure you head on over to The House blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has done with this photo.  And if you "need" any of the stamps I used, check out my 10% off your entire order coupon code over in my lift sidebar.
