#893 – Tic Tac Toe Challenge!!

Hello!! I’ve got exciting news to share!! I’ve been generously asked by Felicita to join the Tic-Tac-Toe design team and I’ve humbly accepted!! Today’s my first day being a part of the challenge as a part of the DT!! Looking forward to an exciting journey with this wonderful team!

Well, coming to latest challenge! Here’s the Thank You/ Fall board created by Joanne:

I chose the first row – Plaid, Pumpkin and Thankful. And here’s what I made –

I created the plaid in the background by using CrafTrat 2 Step Plaid stencil. This is really a stencil that I’m super happy with!! Since I also wanted to add a touch of black, I took my black gel pen and added criss-crossing lines over the plaid.

For the pumpkins themselves, I used CrafTangles watercolor paper, stamped the set of pumpkins from Verve’s Bountiful Harvest stamp set in Antique Linen and watercolored it further using Gansai Tambi watercolors.

Once dried, I trimmed the panel, I stamped it with the sentiment from Winnie & Walter The Big, The Bold and You stamp set. I then matted it with black cardstock and foam mounted it on the plaid card base.

I must say, the watercoloring this time turned out better than I expected! So happy with it! 🙂

With this card, I am joining the following challenges –
