LEJ Designs Challenge #75

Welcome Fellow Bloggers, Crafters and Friends.... Thank you for all the visits you make to my blog.
 
 
Today sees the start of this weeks new LEJ Designs weekly challenge. This weeks theme is 'CELEBRATE'. To me, celebrate represents any occasion that you would have a party for.... so birthdays, wedding, anniversary, christening etc...
 
 
As stated, the LEJ Challenge Blog offers weekly challenges, which start on a Tuesday.
The winner of the challenge will win some of the gorgeous LEJ Designs Digi Images. There is also a small crafting prize which is provided by one of our wonderful sponsors (please see main blog posts for the sponsor details).
 
 
Please click the link or photo below to take you to the LEJ Designs Challenge Blog. On the blog, you will find links to the LEJ Designs Shop. This is always worth a look as new images are added all the time, and there are also a few freebies to look out for....
 
 

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.
 

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges....
