I'm the proud hostess at Shopping Our Stash this week and I've come up with a Tic-Tac-Toe (because I always love them... hope you do, too!):
Here's one of the cards I've made to share:
This was made using the top row and the far- right column.
- Main panel was a background made a couple months ago and was just in background stack. It was made using a Hero Arts stamp heat-embossed with pewter EP onto some inexpensive watercolor paper and colored with Color Bursts in Burnt Orange, Yellow Ochre, and Sepia. After trimming the edges, I ran Distress Stain in Brushed Pewter aroud it to cover the white paper edges.
- The matting panel was made also a couple months ago on the same type of inexpensive watercolor paper, but this was a scrap that I had gel-printed on using unknown paints... could have been Liquitex... could have been Distress... I just have no recollection of it!
- The leaf is an old, old stamp-- one of the first stamps I think I bought as an adult. I bought this in Willits, CA, on a trip to visit Humboldt before I attended HSU. So it must have been back right around the year 2000... hmmm... I know I've used this stamp before, so it would be interesting to see the way I remember the story of this stamp from the past! Anyway, the stamp was heat-embossed on a scrap of watercolor paper in pewter and colored with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals in Dark Chocolate Truffle and Rudolph's Red Nose. Gorgeous. Then I fussy-cut it and inked the edges with heavily neglected Distress Stain in Brushed Pewter.
- The "Thanks" was heat-embossed with Pewter as well on a scrap of the gel-printed mat paper.
That is it! I have some more to share this week-- let's just hope I have time! The abbreviated weeks always mess me up!
Thanks for stopping by. I look forward to seeing which way you'll play the tic-tac-toe!
