Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #11 - Celebrate!

Thanks for popping in!

Finally managed to join in on the fun over at the Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge blog, as well as put ink to a stamp set that I ADORE considering the flowers are now blooming in my garden in 3 different colours.

Here are the challenge parameters:

I chose one of the diagonal lines - Yellow, Ink Splatters, Scalloped Border - and created this card:

The ink splatters were added once the image was stamped using Inka Gold Beeswax Polish mixed with water. It has a lovely shine that matches the gold cardstock I used for the scalloped border, but it's hard to see in this photo.

Alas, my yellow peony has almost finished showing off it's gorgeous fragrant flowers, so I must settle for trying to recreate its loveliness on paper until it blooms again next year - an impossible task as Mother Nature does it so much better!

Pop on over to see all the amazing creations on the challenge blog - guaranteed you'll be inspired (and maybe decide to join in?) :-)

Stamps: Altenew Peony Bouquet; Altenew Painted Greetings
Dies: MFT Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frame Die-namics; Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles
Accessories: Viva Decor Inka Gold


  1. Susi, this is absolutely stunning! The colors you chose, gold and green with just a touch of purple are lovely. The layout is wonderful and those splatters complete the card. Your flowers do look like they came right out of your garden!

  2. Simply beautiful, Susi ... your detailing is fantastic ... those gold splatters are such a gorgeous touch! Your garden must be a place of joy considering it inspired this stunner! Hugs, Anita :)
