Birthday Bingo

Published January 31, 2012 by isisimaginings


Happy Tuesday to one & all. Today’s card went to another of the Grand Cinema team, in Tacoma, WA.  My brief was “she likes Disney & casinos”.  Okaaaay………:)  My first thought was Disney as I knew I had a pack of Disney themed bottlecaps in my stash.  So I went looking.  And couldn’t find them anywhere.  They were nowhere to be found.  After a few whispered “oh dears” & “what a shame” I decided it would have to be casinos.  Or something in that vein. 

Ingredients:

  • Tim Holtz Bingo texture fade embossing folder
  • Tim Holtz Kraft Resist
  • Tim Holtz Idea-ology Wordstick
  • Distress inks – Evergreen Bough, Seedless Preserves
  • Perfect Pearls mist Heirloom Gold
  • Spellbinders Nestabilities labels
  • Sizzix Broadway Melody alphabet dies

I started with the Bingo texture fade, using it to emboss a piece of Core’dinations Whitewash card stock, which I tore & distressed with some sandpaper.  I chose the ledger page of the Kraft Resist paper stash because of the numbers.  I blended the DIs over it, then sprayed it with the Heirloom Gold PP.

My initial thought was to use a word ticket with a memo pin, but I prefer the wordstick.  I put a few drops of alcohol inks on to it.  If you put another colour of AI on to another, the first colour disappears.  Cool!

That’s pretty much it.  Hope the birthday girl liked it.  Thanks for looking.  Until next time,

Love & light.

 
PS Remember the Disney bottlecaps?  I found them a few days after I’d mailed the card.  They were under the printer.  No, I have no idea how they got there.
