Bloggers Challenge- Tic-Tac-Toe

Looking for Dude Time Doodles- BoniBleaux Scavenger Hunt/Blog Hop?  HERE you go!

 This week our Bloggers Challenge 'Mom' LISA challenged us to a game of Tic-Tac-Toe.
                  I used Embossing, Pattern Paper and Ribbon/Seam Binding. 

 The background technique and embossing is Technique Junkies Faux Washi paper from the latest newsletter.  The image is from Priscillastyles and is for a Progressive Digi Challenge at the Crafters Digital Art Center.  I colored the image with Copics and added highlights with a Sakura Gelly roll pen.  (If you know me, you know I LOVE pink......).......


  The patterned paper I used is Basic Grey Euphoria.  The Seam Binding was dyed using Rose Red SU reinker. I also tried something new- I made the clamshell knot with some Mizuhiki cord I purchased and have never touched...... It was not as hard as I thought it would be.

Come play along with Bloggers Challenge- it is Just For Fun and we all enjoy visiting each other's blogs and seeing different interpretations of the challenge!  Stop by Challenge 'Mom' Lisa's BLOG and say hello!

Very pretty card. The way that you did the divison on the fan with Shakura pens makes it look like the pieces are separate.
