AAA Cards Challenge #114: Tic Tac Toe

This fortnight our sponsor is Stamplorations.
The theme Tic Tac Toe was chosen by yours truly and I chose the left column (gold, flowers, watercolour).

For my card I used Waterart paper from Kippers Hobby and I stamped my flowers from Craft Sensations with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Wow! rich gold embossing powder.

Then I used my fluid watercolors from Talens to colour some of the blooms, to keep it as CAS and elegant as possible. The sentiment is from Sizzix (it's you birthday by Stephanie Bernard), also embossed with the same powder.
The stamp was smaller than the cardbase, so I joined a few lines with a Versamaker
and then cut the paper to fit, so I ended with a mat. I raised the panel with foamtape.

For more information and examples from our DT, or to play along, see this.

  8. Hi Maaike, This is a stunner! I just love the combination of red with the rich gold embossing. The coloring is amazing on the flowers with the fluid watercolors. I am a fan of the partial coloring technique. The card really is wonderfully CAS and elegant. The raised matting adds the dimension and interest.Hugs - Bharati
