I made this card for my father-in-law who loves working in his yard. This gorgeous stamp (Bird House Autumn) is from Serendipity Stamps www.serendipitystamps.com/. I inked up the image with Memento Inks and then coloured with Bic Mark It markers. I used Faber-Castell gel sticks to create the yellow and orange border. I used a technique of rubbing the gel stick on and then using a baby wipe to smooth out the colours. See a tutorial by Tobi Crawford here http://www.annabellestamps.blogspot....pical-tuesdays... I added the Smash black polka dot washi tape to the sides. I die cut the image using a Spellbinders die and the banners off the side are both die cut using a Papertry die. I masked off part of the Taylored Expression sentiment and stamped the other part in Memento ink. Finally, the edges of the dies were sponged with Distressed inks. This card meets the challenge at Taylored Expressions tayloredexpressions.blogspot.com/ Tic Tac Toe ( I used the Use washi tape, Make a birthday card and Use 2 or more dies squares for my Tic Tac Toe).
