Mountain Air for Retro Rubber 163

Welcome to another challenge at Retro Rubber Challenge. Tic Tac Toe is one of my favourites - and not just because I came up with it! As usual, you can make what you please as long as it matches one of the lines in the grid: horizontal, vertical or diagonal. Since it's Retro Rubber, then you need to use at least one stamp that's a year or more old AND give us an approximate age for it.

Because masculine cards are something I often avoid, I deliberately created a board that steers us towards masculine so there was no escape for me! Of course, if you see something non-masculine here, you're free to run with it.

I've gone for the bottom row: stripes, the outdoors, twine.

I created some stripes from strips of wood-grain paper from the In Good Taste DSP pack. I've placed them over a base of Basic White, embossed with the Tasteful Textiles folder. 

I've used the Mountain Air set to create the scene and added some die cut trees, in Mossy Meadow, from the coordinating Majestic Mountain dies. This set, and dies, first appeared in the Occasions Catalogue in January 2020 and are still current.

The sentiment is from the retired Clubhouse stamp set, cut with one of the Tasteful Labels dies.

Blending brushes made the addition of sky and grassland very easy. 

We'd all love to see what you do with this Tic Tac Toe grid and see what masculine masterpieces you whip up!
