Tic Tac Toe with Smudgy Antics

Smudgy Antics day has arrived yet again - but then it is Monday!

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"). 

Simple enough for you all?

There're times when I can't make my mind up with these projects and end up with all the elements. This week I tried very hard to limit myself. I went with the centre line of "Distress, Mono-chrome and Fabric or ribbon". A bit of glitter found it's way in as well though in the form of red stickles.
This image from the pen of Ike, who is now drawing some images for Smeared Ink. This one is from the range of 5 Succubus women - image #4
You can see which colour I chose, haha. The image is coloured with promarkers and cut out using labels 8 nestie. and backed onto red pearlescent card after some ink distressing. 
She is a beauty, isn't she!
The image panel was layered onto a piece of red patterned paper from stash (distressed), to which a ribbon (sheer organza and grosgrain) detail had been added then onto deep red plain card (distressed) then the card base onto a card base (distressed) made from the same pearlescent red as the image mat. Some red stickles added to the wings of our lady and to the corners of the card.
There we have it. Room for a sentiment when I decide who is going to get this.

Looking forward to seeing your "Tic-Tac-Toe" projects
