Hello and welcome! Time for a new challenge at Tic Tac Toe and this time, we have a board prepared by LeAnne to play with –
I chose the mid row Blue-Circle-Floral Image to make this card –
I used the latest addition to my stamps – Altenew Calming Reverie. These gorgeous stamps are large and so easy to use – I just love them! I used inks on shades of navy blue for the flowers and leaves, varying the saturation to get a beautiful monochrome. But of course, the little bit of yellow and brown adds a spot of bright color to an otherwise dull tone.
Since I wasn’t going to use any dimension for the flowers, I thought of adding a little extra for the sentiment instead. I cut two strips of black cardstock and adhered them in parallel over the card. For the sentiment, I die cut a circle of white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles, adhered it over another piece which I had cut out of scrap cardstock. I then stamped the “i miss your face” from Ellen Hutson Totally Random Sayings Vol 1 stamp set. I adhered this over two pieces of vellum that I die cut using Spellbinders Delightful Circles. The final part came from Altenew Bold Greetings die, which I die cut from a few scrap black cardstock and once from photo paper colored in black. The last layer adds some shine to the die cut, which I totally love! 🙂
And that’s my card! Joining the following challengs with it –

I seem to have got myself a bit behind, never mind, I get there in the end. I really like this one, well I always like your cards so that’s nothing new, but the extra details you have added with the sentiment make this one special xx
