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:
Here is what I created for your inspiration:
My main column is: dragonflies, fun fold, background wash. But, I also added: shimmer or sparkle, dimension, frame, vellum and dew drops (everything except lighthouse). I started with the background. I used water color paper and two shades of blue and two shades of green to create my background wash. Then I mixed some silver Perfect Pearls with some water and brushed it over the background. The shimmer and shine is really fabulous in real life. Then I stamped and heat embossed the dragonfly on water color paper with black embossing powder. I used some water color markers to color the dragonfly and added some of the Perfect Pearls shimmer to it as well. You can see the sparkle in the photo below.
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.
