Hero Arts Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge

Here is Hero Arts Tic-Tac-Toe challenge for June. Below is the challenge photo:

I decided to make a card for the column of "circles", "background stamp", and "watercolor". And here is the finished card:

I white embossed the background stamp on a watercolor paper. Then, I used a piece of acetate applying Distress ink pad sprayed with water mist to color the background. This is the so-called "Smooshing" technique which is pretty popular currently. I cut a circle in the middle of the watercolor background. I stamped coffee mug and greeting on a piece of circle kraft cardstock with Hero Arts blue Ombre ink pad. I also brushed the clear Wink of the Stella pen on the mug. Finish the card by lifting the background with foam tapes and let the kraft circle show under the circle. Below is another look of the card (to see the dimension):

And here is a closer look of the kraft circle:

Cardstock: PTI, watercolor paper
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink Pads: Hero Arts, Versamark, Distress ink pads
Others: circle die, the Wink of Stella pen, foam tapes, white embossing powder

  1. The background you've created has really knocked my socks off! Absolutely stunning effect. And the WoS on the cup is the perfect finishing touch. Wonderful card! Bev
