CC2C #27 and Tic Tac Toe

Hi all!  This week I created a tag for two challenges:  Linda Ledbetter's Studio 3 Compendium of Curiosities Vol II week 27, and Linda Coughlin's Frilly and Funkie, Tic Tac Toe.

This week's CC2C technique is another palette creation, this time with Alcohol Inks.  You can find out all the how-to's on page 52 of Tim's latest book of the same name.

This week's challenge is sponsored by Linda C. at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  You should check out her store, such a great selection of unique items!  And over at the Frilly and Funkie blog, her challenge involves this Tic Tac Toe grid...

We are to pick any line of techniques to use in our project.  I chose Metal, Alcohol Inks and Glitter.  I used Tim's technique in his October tag of 2012, covering the tag with his tissue paper (great stuff!) and scrunching it a bit.  I inked over it with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink, hit the distressed edges with Gathered Twigs, then added a layer of Rock Candy Stickles.  I wanted more bling, so I sprinkled his new dry Rock Candy Stickles over it while it was still wet...yummy!  I used the CC2C technique above to color his cool, new poinsettas, and the tinsel I was lucky enough to get from his etsy shop last Christmas.  The ribbons are from my stash.

I'm pretty happy with it.  Hope my Mom is too, as it will join last year's 12 Tags of Christmas on her tree.  (and if you're reading this, Mom...surprise! ;))
Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments :)
