Grace -- for TioT's-- 'tic, tac, toe'.


The new challenge theme  at Try it on Tuesdays is a 'Tic Tac Toe'
Please pop over for all the details and see what we all made.


The line I chose to use was --
String--Cardboard--Button.



The base layer is some stripped back corrugated packaging, painted with Gesso and them some cream acrylic paint. A sprinkle of Brusho [brown] spritzed with water.
 Followed by some  random areas of Distress Glitter.
The main image, from  Indigo Blu , was also stamped onto a card that had been sprinkled with Brusho in the same way. I used water colours on parts of this as I had a bare patch where the flowers were.
The main flower was made with string.
All the additional shading was Vintage Photo Distress ink.

Thank you for calling by to see what I made,
 the gang at TioT's hope you will join us this time.
