Digi Choosday – Week 16 – Tic Tac Toe

Morning all, hope your all well!

It’s Tuesday, so it we all know what that means, the start of a new challenge at Digi Choosday

This weeks challenge is ‘Tic Tac Toe’, select a line either vertical, horizontal or diagonal and make a project using the three items on the straight line.

I choose the line with the elements – wings, tag and flower.

 

Digi Choosday Week 16 Tic Tac Toe

 

 

Step by Step

1. Cut a tag shape from watercolour card.

2. Created the background using my home made sprays, fluid acrylic inks diluted with water in a mini mister bottle. Used various texture and script stamp with Archival inks to create some interest in the background. Used a dark blue Memento ink pad and a blending tool to edge the tag.

3. Choose Digi stamps and a sentiment from the Lavender Tea Stamp Soup CD-Rom, resized the images to fit my tag using the My Craft Studio graphics program.

4. Printed the images onto Ultimate Graphic paper and coloured the flower and butterfly using Copic pens.

5. Mounted the tag onto black card stock and trimmed to shape.

6. Adhered the flower and butterfly using Art Deco Matte Medium.

7. Used Faber Castell Pitt pens around the edge of the flower and butterfly to make them pop on the background.

8. Used Stickles glitter glue on the butterfly.

9. Coloured the sentiment with FC Pitt pens and framed the sentiment using a Sakura Micron pen. Matted the sentiment onto a piece of coloured card stock, it was a scrap from another background I’d created, and mounted onto black card stock. Adhered sentiment onto tag.

4. To create the base for background, I used Faber Castell Gelatos in blues & greens.

6. Used Archival inks in various colours along with stamps from Creative Expressions and the Polkadoodles Stamp Soup stamp sets, Lavender Tea and Lemonade Fizz, to create interest to the background.

7.  Adhered the butterfly and quote to the background using Art Deco Matte Medium.

8. Used Faber Castell Pitt pens to add colour to the quote and around the butterfly to add some depth.

9. Used a silver Faber Castell Gelato to emphasis the embossed areas.

This weeks theme is ‘Anything Goes’, so whatever your style or design, come on over and join in with the challenge.

 

I’ve created a page in one of my art journals, using the brilliant Ickyink Oddella with handbag digi stamp, a sentiment from the Stamp Soup Lavender Tea CD- ROM and I also used the Lavender Tea Stamp Soup and Lemonade Fizz Stamp Soup stamp sets in the background.

 Step by Step

1. I took the Oddella digi stamp into my graphics program, I used My Craft Studio, and crop and resized to fit my A5 page in my art journal.

2. I cropped and resized the sentiment from the Stamp Soup Lavender Tea CD-ROM.

3. Printed Oddella and the sentiment onto Ultimate Graphic paper, it’s my choice of paper when I’m colouring digi stamps with my alcohol pens. 

4. Coloured Oddella digi stamp with Copic pens & Sakura Stardust pens and then fussy cut her. Cut out the sentiment, I wasn’t very precise just cut by hand leaving enough room so I could add a border/frame with pen later.

5. To create the background on the A5 page, I used Creative Expressions Colour Cloud blending inks in yellow, pink & orange.

6. Used my mini minsters with fluid acrylic inks diluted with water, I used Magic Color fluid acrylic inks, in yellow, orange and purple to spray/splatter the background.

7. Used stencils from Clarity Stamps, Tim Holtz & Dyan Reaveley together with the Creative Expressions Colour Cloud blending inks ( a dark purple & grey) to add depth to the background.

8. Used stamps from the Stamp Soup Lavender Tea and Stamp Soup Lemonade Fizz stamp sets, using Archival inks in various colours to add interest to the background.

9. Coloured the stamp hearts with a pink Faber Castell Pitt pen.

10.  Glued Oddella and sentiment in place using Art Deco Matte Medium, I also gave the whole page a thin coat of the matte medium.

11. Once the matte medium was dry, I coloured the sentiment with yellow & orange FC Pitt pens. Added some shadow around the stamped heart using a warm grey FC Pitt pen and highlighted Oddella with orange and yellow FC Pitt pens.

12. Used a Copic multi-liner pen to add a border to the page and the sentiment.
