Celebrate You for SIP137

Hi! Welcome to my blog.  I am having a bold and bright week!  Well, most of my creative week has been bold and bright.  I don’t know what happens but, sometimes I can only reach for certain groups of colors.  I did it again this morning when I created my Celebrate You for SIP137 card.  It too is bold and bright!

This week’s SIP challenge is a Tic Tac Toe.

I chose to go with watercolor, word die cut and embossing.

Starting at the bottom, I used an Emerald Envy card base.

Then, I added a layer of Tutti Frutti designer paper

(psst – that’s my give away the second half of this month!)

For the focal layer, I painted a watercolor wash in Lemon Lime Twist.

Once it was dry, I added some Lemon Lime Twist splatter.

And instead of sequins, I punched some small circles of Myths and Magic Glimmer Paper.

I backed the focal layer with a narrow layer of Bermuda Bay cardstock.

Next, I cut three circles using the Layering Circles Framelits.

Then, I embossed each circle with a different embossing folder.

This way, I not only added texture with the circles but with the embossing too!

And of course, this takes care of one more square on the Tic Tac Toe board.

Before adhering the circles, I added a strip of Lemon Lime Twist Ombre Ribbon.

Finally, I die cut “friend” from Bermuda Bay and “amazing” from Silver Glimmer Paper.

Tip: The Multipurpose Adhesive Sheets make adhering “amazing” really easy!
