A Game Of Bingo At The Stampman

Afternoon everyone, hope you are all well. The end of another week. I sometimes wonder whether I doze off for a couple of days each week, they seem to get faster and faster. We've had an afternoon of rain too, I can see all my plants reviving as I look at them.

It's time for another challenge at The Stampman and Lisa Sparkle has given us a bingo card to play with. You can select any line vertically, horizontally or diagonally and must use all the ingredients in that line although you can use other things too. Pop over to the challenge blog to see what delicious things she's included.

I chose the bottom line which included Die cuts, Homemade paper and Bling or Sparkle and made a door hanger.

I daubed Starburst stain over the base and then stamped some stars from the Starburst Fairies set over the top before edging it with Lapis Blue Cosmic Shimmer embossing powder. It was from the UTEE set so gave a rougher finish but I quite like that.

I then made some homemade paper for the tattered flower by putting distress ink on my craft mat, spritzing with water and swooshing cartridge paper around in it. For the darker one I used Broken China, Chipped Sapphire and Vintage Photo and the lighter one was Broken China and Bundled Sage which I then stamped text over with Broken China. After cutting them out with the Tim Holtz die I dipped each layer into some melted clear EP. I used a large pie dish for this and my heat gun not having a melting pot and although it was a bit messy it worked OK.

The letters were cut out using Tim's Vintage Market die and the swirl was yet another of Tim's dies.

The rest of the team have come up with some amazing projects so make sure you check them out and don't forget the prize is a £10 Stampman Voucher so it's well worth joining in.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your weekend whatever you are up to. We are hoping for a nice day tomorrow. It's our local country show and I'd rather not have to put my wellies on.
