Clarity Challenge - BINGO
Hello and welcome to this months blog. My Bingo is a line down the middle, which means that I have used, gilding flakes, stamps and dies.
This project was inspired by a piece by my good friend Amanda Branagan, and started out life as a cheap blank kids jigsaw puzzle. First of all I started off by brayering some hills and sky with Adirondak inks, my brayer had been used for acrylics and not washed so it gave quite a nice texture.
Next I used a mask and some yellow Fresco paint to put in a sun. I used the funky house and gate which I masked off and then stamped the funky trees and fence.
Next came the gilding flakes, which I love, but always end up getting everywhere but on the project. After much huffing and puffing I got it where it needed to be.
I coloured the picture in with distress markers and wink of Stella pens to add some sparkle.
I don't have that many dies, but i like this one, which is a MFT die with three different types of tatty labels. I used my alphabet rotary stamp to add the stamped sentiment on the piece.
I hope you like it and will join in with the Clarity Challenge this month.
Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.
