Allsorts Bingo Challenge

Today I thought I'd enter one of my cards into the Lets Play Bingo Challenge over on the Allsorts Challenge Blog.  This is one that I made for The Craft Barn's June Extravaganza Weekend using the Sisters stamp by Belles and Whistles along with flourishes and wording from my own Fancy Flourishes stamp sheet. From the Bingo selection I have chosen Pearls, Mist/Stickles and Ribbon.

I have used two of my Martha Stewart punches on this too - Floral Vine and Monarch Butterfly as well as a Stormy Sky Distress inkpad for all the blue stamping.

For my main image I stamped onto watercolour card with black Versafine and watercoloured my image using Distress inkpads and a water brush. The inkpads I used were Spun Sugar, Stormy Sky, Bundled Sage, Shabby Shutters, Mustard Seed, Brushed Corduroy, Antique Linen and Tattered Rose.

Here's a closer look at my watercolouring attempt!  I definitely still prefer my Copics but I guess it is good to try and master other stuff too!

To finish off the card I sprayed it with a pearl glimmer mist and then added touches of glitter glue which doesn't show up very well from these photos but trust me it is there!!

All products used came from The Craft Barn.

Talking of challenges - today is the start of a brand new challenge over on The Stamp Man's Challenge Blog so you may like to head on over there and see what they've got in store for you this time!!

Have a great weekend and for those of you who are booked onto my classes tomorrow, I'll see you VERY soon!!  By the way, talking of classes I have updated My Event Diary in my sidebar to include the dates and details for my November and December classes.
