Imaginisce and Cricut Challenges An Altered Project ~Princess~

Altered Tic Tac Toe Board from Thrift Store (paid .98 cents)

Full View made into a wall hanging

Close Ups Love those Imaginisce Stamps

Adorable Cricut Cuts

Imaginisce Carriage Stamp and Cricut Unicorn
Used the I-Rock on the carriage wheels and the unicorn horn (NOTE I cut the Imaginisce Glam Rocks)

I used the wiggle eyes and colored over them with the Copic markers, the Imaginisce castle stamp was colored in with the Copics also, the frog was cut from Once Upon a Princess Cart. too cute!! I also cut the I-Glam Rocks for the princess jewel in her crown into a diamond. The star wand is Fancy Pants pins cut the needle with snips.

I just love the dragon and the unicorn, the unicorn reminds me of the My Little Ponies

The rose also sprayed with Tattered Angels Bubble Gum

The original piece I had bought this at the thrift store for .98 cents I painted it with Golden White Gesso then Sprayed with Tattered Angels Bubble Gum spray and wiped off

 The pieces that belong to the Tic Tac Toe board only came with four game pieces  

          Well Hello!! I know it seems like forever even though it has only been week, but a  tough one at that. Dusty stayed sick until Thursday and now everyone is well!! YEAH!!!! I got all the laundry finished up here yesterday and was able to work on this yesterday. As soon as I saw the challenges I started the whole idea...I colored everything in with the Copic markers, the stamps are all Imaginisce. The stamps are the princess, dragon, the carriage, the flowers, and the castle.  The papers are Imaginisce and some Bazzill for cardstock.  The papers are from the Enchanted Collection from Imaginisce.
            The challenges for this projects are based on two challenges for this month one  from the Imaginisce Blog where the fabulous Pinky altered the Christmas clock she had, I was so Inspired that I thought why not use the tic tac toe board I bought at the thrift store a few months back for .98 cents it only came with four oxox pieces. Whenever I do go to the thrift store I am always looking for things to alter, I tell my husband "yes I can do something with it but in my next life" LOL!!! It seems sometimes I have too much to alter, but you never know what might be EXACTLY what you are needing!!! Here are the details from Pinky
