Love You Lots, PP342

Hello friends! It's Sunday and time for a new challenge at The Paper Players. The wonderful Jaydee is our hostess this week for a Tic-Tac-Toe challenge. I think this is my favorite Tic-Tac-Toe board ever, it has all my favorite elements!  I went with the bottom row: Pink, Leaves and Flowers.

I made this card while on vacation, and with very limited supplies I had to be a little creative. I used a combination of some long retired Stampin' Up Ink Spots and markers and an Aqua Painter to watercolor the flowers and leaves on the heat embossed images. I must say I'm pretty pleased with the end result! 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Organic Blooms (Mama Elephant)
Card Stock: Solar White, Desert Storm (Neenha), Smooth Watercolor Card Stock (Bristol)
Ink Pads: Pretty in Pink, Bashful Blue, Regal Rose, Certainly Celery, Old Olive (Stampin' Up), Black Versafine, Versamark (Tsukineko)
Tools: Heat Tool, Big Shot, Aqua Painter, Femme Frames Dies (Mama Elephant)
Accessories: White Embossing Powder, Moonshine Sequins (Simon Says Stamp)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Please visit the rest of our Design Team at The Paper Players, and I hope you'll play along with our challenge this week, too!
