Colour Dare 441 - Just Because Wild Roses

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 441!  

It's another tic-tac-toe board this week... please use ONLY the colours on the board and the neutrals that are identified (not all neutrals are included). 

I used Glacier, Lagoon and Nectarine to form my diagonal line and also used Almond, Lemonade and Toffee (so another tic-tac-toe with the second row on the grid). 

I began by stencilling a vine image using Glacier and Almond inks. That piece was adhered to Toffee cardstock and then to Glacier cardstock before being attached to the card base. The flowers and leaves were stamped, die cut and coloured in orange (Nectarine), Glacier and Lagoon. I added some clear sparkles to the centres of the flowers and coloured them with a yellow marker. The flower centres were also brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush. The sentiment was stamped with Black pigment ink on vellum and heat embossed. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us your tic-tac-toe using the grid shown above.
