Stamping Smiles Design Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #13

Happy July 1st!! I am here today to bring you my card for Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #13. I am going to admit, this challenge badge is one of my favorites!!

I used the top row across for my card-felt, shimmer and a quote sentiment. I also used colors that are more muted then I usually do, as well as got a bit messy. I had so much FUN!!

I started off this card by blending Distress Ink in "Peeled Paint" and "Walnut Stain" on a white A2, top folding card base. I manly chose to keep the color in the top left hand corner and blend the ink out from there.

Next, I used "Walnut Ink" mist and sprayed, as well as flicked the mist onto the card front.

While the card front dried, I die cut the flower out of My Favorite Things felt using their "Gerbera Daisy" die. The leaves I die cut out of green card stock using Paper Smooches "Foliage 3" Wise Die.

I assembled the card by adhering the green leaf die cuts in the upper left hand corner. I then glued the yellow daisy over the top, adding the brown die cut middle. I stamped the sentiment by Altenew from "Beautiful Quotes" in brown ink onto the card front.

To finish the card off, I spritzed it with Shimmer spray and used clear Wink of Stella in the middle of the daisy and on the leaves.

I absolutely LOVE how this card came out and will be making a few more of these in different colors to have on hand. Hope on over to Stamping Smiles Designs Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge Blog and join us. I cannot wait to see what you create!!

Sponging and splattering - two of my favorite things to do - and you combined them perfectly!
