It is an honour to win a challenge, but even more of one to be able to add a card to the design team list. With this weeks theme being a Tic-Tac-Toe I chose the top line of the choices given.
The products used are as follows: Itty Bitty Basics from MFT, Gina K Designs Peach Bellini CS, PP from StampinUp, Harmonius Hibicus background stamp from MFT, A single flower Hibiscus rubber stamp from Card Craft Stamps #48452, Embellishments from my stash, white and gold heat embossing powders with Distress Oxide inks – abandoned coral, scattered straw and twisted citron, perfect pearl powder and a shimmer water colour from ColourArt called Moonbeam.
After using my Misti to stamp and heat emboss the background, I then added the inks blending the coral and scattered straw together. Twisted Citron was used for the stems and leaves. Once the inks were dry I proceeded to add the blue watercolour to the background keeping it as soft as possible. I left the panel to dry before cutting it down to add to the CS. I heat embossed the single flower in gold and then added inks in the same colours as the rest but keeping the flower center a bit stronger in colour. I fussy cut this flower added some foam tape so it could be popped up onto the PP belly band I had added to the background panel. I stamped, cut and added the sentiment pieces as shown and finished it off with some gems. I have a small strip left over from the background piece to make another card.
