Hello and welcome! Time for a new challenge at Tic Tac Toe, where the board this time, created by JoAnne is this –
I chose the center column of Sky-Circle-Sea and here’s what I made –
I started with making the water for the sea. I used gelli plate with Neat and Tangled Rice Paddies stencil, along with a few light shades of blue distress ink. I then drew the wavy lines on the back, and cut it out. I used another piece of scrap white cardstock to create another wave, to lie it in between.
For the sunshine, I used masking tape and brushed out Scattered Straw distress ink, to form the sun’s rays. For the sun itself, I used two die cuts from Sizzix Phrases dies. I first colored two scrap pieces of cardstock using Scattered Straw Mustard Seed distress inks and die cut them. I also die cut a few extra pieces which I then stacked to get some dimension.
The top doggo comes from My Favorite Things Top Dog stamp set, which I colored using distress inks. I also drew the surf board and watercolored it. (Somehow the coloring is not showing up well.. its actually better than it looks here.. 😦) I then fussy cut the images.
The sentiment, comes from My Favorite Things Top Dog stamp set as well. To bring the card together, I simply adhered the pieces on a white card base, adding little dimension using extra cardstock.
I love how fun this card looks – more so because the doggo has even brought his bone with him to surf!! And I’m sharing this card with the following challenges –
