Playing with the Tic, Tac Toe challenge.

Today, I am participating in the first ever Tic Tac Toe Challenge. I chose the top line across to create my card; stripes, circle and gold. 

For my card today, I cut three strips of Wood Textures DSP measuring 1.25 x 5.25. I stamped onto my strips using the flowers image from Wood Words stamp set with early espresso ink.  I then roughed up the edges by running my paper snips along the sides. To add dimension and give it a rustic look, I inked up a stampin sponge in early espresso and added some color around the edges. I do like how it turned out!

Card base: Early Espresso cardstock

Inks used: Early Espresso, Sahara Sand (second impression) and Versamark with Gold Embossing Powder

Stamps used: Wood Words

Other: Stitched Shapes Framelits, Wood Crate Framelits, Linen Thread, Delicate White Doilies and Metalics Sequin Assortment. 

Thank you for stopping by today!
