Tic-Tac-Toe Tag with video tutorial

Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about choosing your tic-tac-toe from the following grid that teammember Maura made.

It was a difficult choice picking my line, I'd done almost full house. Eventually I chose the sequins-stencil-washi combination. Simon Says Stamp has recently released a new release called Among the Stars and in this release are also the Watercolor Paintable Prints. These are printed on Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor cardstock. The little beach house I colored with Prima Marketing Watercolor Pencils and then cut it out by hand.

The background of the tag I wanted to give it a beach feel for the little beach house. For the sand I used Frayed Burlap and I chose Broken China for the sky. To bring more depth to the background I used the Ringer stencil and went with the same colors over it.




To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!
You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in.

This looks like a sweet little beach house, Sandra! It is just so cute and happy and looks wonderful on your tag!

Mimi said...

Very cool! My initial take was that you could pin this to some new dish-towels as a house-warming. Love the palette.
