Happy Hump Day!!!! 

Here we are with another Tic, Tac, Toe challenge at The House That Stamps Built.  It's always such fun to see what everyone comes up with in these challenges.  

We hope you'll join us and enter the challenge.  If you do, you will be entered in a drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate for Repeat Impressions stamps.  The drawing will take place at the end of the month and will include all of the entries from all of the month's challenges.  So....the more you play, the more chances you have to win.  ALSO...if you use RI stamps on your project, you'll get two entries in the challenge.  

I began creating my card with the first vertical line in mind (Flowers, Tags, Colored Pencils), but when it was finished I noticed it could also be the top horizontal line (Flowers, Purple, Ribbon or Twine), or the second horizontal line (Tags, Gems or Pearls, Green).   Almost a BINGO!!! LOL!!! 

The Repeat Impressions Stamps I'm using on my card are RI#4303-M "Nap Time Fairy" and the sentiment is RI#3919-F "My Best Bud".  I used my new Chameleon Color Tones Pencils...I am in love with them.  

What fun challenges these TTT challenges are.  Head on over to my team mates to see the incredible projects they've created.

Hello Junkies...well, it's almost Mother's Day and I just had to make a card using this adorable stamp called "Mama and Baby".  

The background was created using the new Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Inks which I sponged on a piece of watercolor paper.  I then lightly spritzed it with water and blended gently with an aqua brush.  After drying the panel, I sponged more ink on in areas I wanted a little more color.  The elephant stamp was stamped using Archival inks in layers.  First I covered the stamp with "Watering Can" which is a gray ink and then I inked the stamp up again but only in a few areas with black.  The result was "shadows" on the elephants.  

The sentiment is from the new April 2017 Stamp Release collection "Happy Mother's Day".

Technique Junkies has a new monthly challenge and you can still play and enter until May 13.  Winners will be announced on May 14.  

We also have a new FaceBook Page.  Come on over and join in on the conversations and post your cards and comments.
