Tic Tac Toe and Tic Tac Poe

Noughts and Crosses just doesn't have the same ring to it does it? :)

These are the options from

Weekly Challenge: TIC-TAC-TOE 3 in a Row

This week's challenge is a fun one.  Can I interest anyone in a game of TIC-TAC-TOE?  Just pick any three items in a row from the grid below.  You can go up and down, across, or diagonally.  Please make sure to list which three items you have used in the making of your project and use at least one stamped image ("real" or "digi").


Thou shalt chose 3 squares in whatever direction thy heart desires and use the contents thereof on thy creation, which may be anything thou thinkest shall pleaseth The Master. 

Well I thought I would combine the challenges!
From the Smudgy Antics Grid, 
I chose:
From the Quoth The Raven Grid,
I chose:
Although those are my main choices there are aspects of some other elements too.
In my M & M (Materials and Method)
I have used CAPITAL LETTERS to illustrate my choices from the grids. 
I would also like to add when I say I combined them I still used separate choices from each challenge.  
Here is what I  made: 

I used a large chipboard tag (aprox 7 inches by 4 inches)

I painted it with Acrylic PAINT, first willow then lake mist, dragging it to give it more of  a stripped wood effect. 
I stamped it with a la blanche text stamp inked with 
Archival Library Green, then inked the edges with Chipped Saphire Distress Ink.

I EMBOSSED some Kraft Core Coredinations in a shade of green and DISTRESSED by sanding and tearing, the edges are also inked in Chipped Saphire DI.
I printed the image of POE,
Poe Moe by Andrea of Smudgetastic   
  onto Safmat and attached it to the Kraft core, I added 
some metal brads.

I added a METAL embellishment using a Tim Holtz chain and  swivel clasp and attached it to one of the brads.

Then finished everything off by adding black RIBBON, string, raffia, bakers twine, glittery twine and tied it to the tag.  

  Love and Peace, 
Vee xx
