Get Creative Challenges #40 Bingo Challenge

Hi to all. I'm back with another challenge for Get Creative Challenges

Blog Badge

Challenge #40 used a bingo table to inspire and I chose a diagonal of glitter, patterned paper and blue. I also used a pretty gypsy image from our sponsor The Fantasy Art of Nikki Burnette .

I coloured the image using Copic markers before fussy cutting it. (I can't do hair - it always looks flat.) I glued clear glitter along the ruffles and layered the image onto some flocked paper. While technically it's not printed paper, the colours matched so perfectly that I had to use it. (Plus, I've had it for so long, it was time it was used. I had to cut off the edges where it had worn and discoloured.)


When I'm colouring images for use on cards, I think it's better for the background to be simple and let the image "speak for itself". Although, when compared to some of the other designer cards at Get Creative, mine seems plain and a bit boring. Time for a rethink of my style, perhaps???

Anyway, join us at Get Creative Challenges blog and have some fun creating from a selection of 8 possibilities. Winners get free images from Nikki for hours of more fun.

See you soon.
