Hello.  Welcome.  Last second altered playing card for the Craft Barn dictionary challenge.  The time it's X.  I quite like the expensive letters.  Always a joy to have X in scrabble, unless it's the last pick and there isn't an O to save you LOL.  Anyway, had the perfect stamp from VLVS and after consulting their new moodboard I came up with this

I used VLVS Turtle X-ray stamped it on grey and edged with black

Such a cool stamp.  I made my background with Wild Honey distress ink stripes and gold texture paste through Stamplorations Stars Align stencil

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
