Tic Tac Toe Birthday



Hello, Today over at Seize the Birthday we have a new challenge beginning and Ashwini has picked a tic tac toe board for us to chose from.  I always enjoy these types of challenges.

I have chosen the middle row of; Inlaid-die-cutting, flowers, and water coloring.  I just love this flower from MFT and thought it would look great watercolored. I heat embossed the flower first and then while I was at it I decided to watercolor the background as well. Since I finally got the die-cut ( that is constantly out of stock over at MFT) to go with the flower it worked perfectly for the inlaid part of my row.  I finished it off with an MFT birthday greeting and some sequins.

I hope you will come check out the lovely array of cards over at Seize the Birthday…the team and our guest Jen did a great job once again.

Take care, Nanc’

  11. Ah, that’s inlaid die cutting – I somehow thought it was only the embossing being a bit thicker on the outlines of the image. But you are right, it makes for a perfect watercoloring experience – which is so apparent in your card, too! Love it, Nancy!

  12. Your watercolouring is so beautiful and the inlay is perfect! I love everything about this card.
