Bugaboo Birthday Bash Day 4

Today’s challenge is Bingo

I have chosen to do the middle column: waves, Bugaboo Image and Sentiment.


Materials used:
Bugaboo Stamps – Seahorse
under water photo from the internet
gilding flakes
tag punch
blue paper string
silver peel-off letters
googly eyes
black marker
A5 card blank
printer card

I printed two images (one reversed) onto printer card then used the gilding flakes to add colour before cutting them out. Where the flakes had covered up the original line art I drew it back in with a black marker. I stuck googly eyes on both images.

I punched out enough tags for my greeting from the scraps left after cutting the seahorses out. I punched a hole in the top of all the tags and used the peel-off letters to spell out my greeting. I then threaded the tags onto lengths of blue paper string.

I used a photo from the internet printed onto printer paper as my background covering the card blank with it before arranging the seahorses and their greeting on the front.

It’s been sometime since I last got out the gilding flakes. I have had them for years but never been very successful with them. Having said that I think they did work well on the seahorses and gave them a bit of sparkle contrasting with the plain background.

Thanks for popping by. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
