Tic Tac Toe at Try it on Tuesdays

Hello and thanks for visiting today, which sees the start of our 'Tic Tac Toe' challenge at Try it on Tuesdays.



For my piece I've gone with the bottom line of Flowers, Flourish and String.


This started life as an off cut piece of hardboard that DH was about to throw out.
I used texture paste through a script stencil, but unfortunately, it's not showing up under all the layers of spray. I didn't have much in the way of chipboard embellishments, so I glued 2 or 3 layers of die cuts together before attaching them to my board.  My flower and leaves in the r.h corner are all made with paper clay. The flourish is 3 layers of a Marianne die cut.  To complete my line I added a swirl of string. When I was happy with the sprayed colours I added Treasure Gold and Gilding wax.
Something a bit different for me, I hope you like it - I really enjoyed making it.
This is a scheduled post as today we will be sightseeing in Jaipur, and 'enjoying' an elephant ride!

Take care,
Avril xx

Beautiful card Avril! I've done the very same ride - don't worry the elephants there are very tame, (Unlike those at Corbett NP!). Hope you are having a fantastic time. Nicola x
