So.... Now to show you what I have made......
I absolutely love this image. It is fun and really great to colour.
I coloured the image with some water colour pencils and a thin water brush. I have really gotten into my water colour pencils as they can get into really find detailing and they blend so perfectly.
I used a gold pearlised card as the matting, and two different clues to match the colour in the ladies top.
I embossed the main backing layer and then punched out the bingo balls with a 1.5" circle punch.
I put a broken border line on the image and the balls with a thin blue ink pen, and used a gold marker pen for the bingo numbers.
I arranged the image, border stripe and bingo balls and stuck them all down with glue and 1" foam pads.
I finished off the card with matching gold card candi.
