TIC-TAC-TOE Three in a Row with Smudgy Antics - week 2

Welcome back for week two of the current challenge with Smudgy Antics.
The theme for this fortnight is Tic-Tac-Toe.
You must use three items in a row from the grid below.  
You may go down, across, or diagonally. 
There is only one more week to play!

I used the third row going down using ribbon, paint and cardboard.

I started with some cardboard from a box and ripped the top to show the corrugated board.  Next I painted the cardboard with DecoArt Americana paint in Lamp Black and Crimson.  I don't know if you can tell by the picture, but I also added red glitter dust paint and silver glitter dust paint, both by DecoArt as well.  Michael's had a big sale Saturday...two for $1.00 so I stocked up!

I added some leftover red ribbon from my stash and stamped three images from Smeared Ink's "Quoth the Raven" rubber set onto Copic X-Press it paper and colored the images with copic markers.  The rubber set can only be bought through Smeared Ink's Rubber Club, but you can also get the digi set here.

After adhering the images to the cardboard with my Copic X-Press it double sided tape (my favorite adhesive at the moment) I added a simple decorative key.  Sorry, I don't remember the brand.  I got it on clearance after Halloween last year.

Be sure to check out the challenge at Smudgy Antics and get some more inspiration from the second half of the Smeared Ink DT.  If you like our challenges, you should check out our Forum as well.  It is free to join and additional challenges as well as swaps can be found there.
