clickity click...

So Sunday Stampers challenge this week was Houses / Homes. Hum, I could do the obvious, but then I thought no - let's go way outside the box and do ... BINGO!  

OK I know it's a very weak link to the theme but it did mean I could use that bingo embossing folder I've had for ages.

Used some vintage shabby paper to emboss the bingo card, I made sure thre was quite a bit of paper and my black rubbewr mat on top as I put it through my Big shot to get a really deep emboss. Then rubbed some Broken China, Spiced Marmalade and Worn Lipstick distress ink over the top to highlight the raised areas.

For the tag underneath I did the wrinkle free distress technique again with Worn Lipstick and Spiced Marmalade. Stamped over the top with a Paper Artsy ledger stamp in Tea Dye.  Inked round the edges in Broken China.

The playing cards were stamped in black Stazon and then a combination  of Worn Lipstick, Spiced Marmalade, Tea Dye and Broken China were added to tie the colours in. 

The Tim numbers were stamped again in black Stazon and the same distress inks used to add a bit of colour. I scrumpled it up to get some creases and ran the Tea Dye ink pad over the top to catch them.

Finally I used a Tim ticket in the Ideology memory pin and used some very old alphabet stickers to spell house.
Apologies on the quality of the pics, had to do inside with flash as we had no natural light what so ever (it's only August for goodness sake, we aren't in the depths of winter  - yet).

Not sure I'm really liking it all together, I really like the tag underneath and I really like the bingo card, but not sure about it all together!  But it was a good opportunity as is the very nature of challenges to try something new!



P.S the hen weekend went very well, obviously I can't tell you about it as what happened in Chard stays in Chard but you can imagine the scene, 10 women, a cocktail shaker, ice and a large quantity of spirits ...
