Tic Tac Toe...

Good morning all, I do hope that you are well this Friday morning...and that you have had a good week...I have been working on the next lot of Clarity samples...and once again I have new favourites...when you see the stamps you will know what I am talking about....

I have also been planning and getting ready for Clarity Cumbria tomorrow...I am so excited as our lovely group of crafters is going from strength to strength and we have our largest group to date....we also have a new lady Eileen who is traveling a long way to come and join us...( I must be on my best behaviour!!!)

Back to today....we have a new Challenge over at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge Blog...and our theme is ..Tic Tac Toe....or Some of you might know it as Bingo....

Here is the Bingo card...

Our lovely host is Beth,,,,and we are sponsored by Live and Love Crafts...

http://www.liveandlovecrafts.com

I had a brilliant time making this design....now you can choose a line from the Bingo card..either horizontally or vertically......but I went for Full House......well it was such fun.....here is my design...

As I created the design I actually did tick off the products and techniques used...lol...

I started with the main image...one of my favourite Clarity stamps...Petite Musique...I stamped In black ink and then embossed using clear embossing powder...I do find this more forgiving than stamping in VersaMark and using Black embossing powder...

The emboss gives a lovely raised edge to the design..

Next I used an embossing folder ( for the dry embossing)

And added some ink with my stencil brush..

Next came the sentiment...

And some colour...now you know how I do love my Spectrum Noir Pencils...

And a black border...
 
 

I needed to use a punch, now I don't have many..but as look would have it this one was just perfect...

And some lace....good job Sweet Lilac Flowers sell flowers and lace...some ribbon just finished off the border...

Another tick ....and the design is taking shape...

Not many things left now...

Pearls...oh that is an easy one...and next on the board ....

Charm...that is what I needed....and it just so happened that I had bought some gorgeous charms from the on line shop of Live and Love Crafts....( our sponsorers...)

Here is a closer look..

 

So if I have done this correctly all I need now is sparkle...so out with the Stickles...

And Full House it is...

I do hope you like what I have made and that you can join in with the challenge...also check out the brilliant inspiration from the rest of the Design Team....

I am off now to walk Tess and Eric then time to get the workshop bags packed.....

My ladies are in for a special surprise tomorrow...but it is a secret....I will take photos and tell you all next week..

Have a good weekend.....and remember to smile....

Much love and hugs...
