Today I am playing along with the Tic Tac Toe Challenge. Great way to challenge yourself and have some fun too. I chose to go diagonally from the bottom left to upper right: One Layer, Distress Inks, and All Things Round.
Here is the challenge board I had to pick from:
I made 4 masks with 4 different circle punches. Using them one at a time until I reached the look I desired. Here are some pictures of the process.
I guess I was in the moment as I missed taking a picture of the last mask, but you get the gist of it.
So much fun creating this and the possibilities are endless. Thanks for stopping by.

I love this card and the fact that it is so creatively done and a one layer card makes it that much more amazing. Thanks for posting the tutorial. I am totally inspired to try this, Tricia.
Thank you so much, Rosanne! Can’t wait to see your creation. I am so happy I could inspire you. Thanks for making my day with your kind comment!
Loved this as a one layered card. Very interesting design. How did you do tiny tiny circles. What stamp set is this? I would love to case this. Or…teach it in a class. It is both challenging and simple. Thank you.
Thank you, Pat! I used one of the stamps from the Playful Backgrounds stamp set. I used a sponge dauber and sponged Lemon Lime Twist, Bermuda Bay and Calypso Coral inks directly onto the stamp in various patterns starting with the lightest color. Cleaning the stamp in-between each use in order to keep the colors vibrant instead of muddied. Might be a bit much for class unless the class fee included the set for each so they could work together. Hope this helps!
Are you kidding me?!?! This is SO awesome! What a great idea. Thank you for the step by step pictures, too. I have to try this with my middle school art group. They’ll go nuts for it. As ever, you are so inspiring. TFS
Thank you so much for your kind comment as it truly brightened my day! I am sure they would love it. I hope you will share some of their creations, as I would love to see them.
Brilliant design Tricia…….With GORGEOUS results.
Thank you, Kadie! This one just flowed and I was so happy making it.
Yes, brilliant! Love the way you made your own circle stencils! And the little bubbles inside are adorable! Love to have you play with us at Tic Tac Toe Challenges!
Thank you, Peggy! The really neat thing with the stencils punched from dark cardstock is that you can use them over and over again. Happy to be able to play along!
This is a stunning one layer card and I appreciate that you shared the process too. Thanks for playing along at Tic Tac Toe Challenge.
Wow! I’m amazed such a lovely one layer card. So happy you shared your process with us. Thank you so much for joining us this week over on the Tic Tac Toe challenge………Hope to see more of your creations in the gallery.
Congratulations!! On such a awesome card being picked as tic tac toe winner!!! Way to go!
Congratulations on being chosen winner over at TTT challenge. I popped over for a closer look and wanted to say I love your one-layer card. Those are so hard for me and always seem so flat. Yours pops though! That dab of Calypso Coral adds so much and the contrast of the black flowers and words to those gorgeous circles is awesome! Thanks for the good directions and for the inspiring idea!
This is fabulous! Very unique!
your card really caught my eye on Mary Fish’s blog. I love masking technique, and will have to play with your idea. I think customers would love creating this for a class. Thanks for your inspiration, and your lovely card.
