Let's play Christmas Bingo!

Thank-you so much to everybody who entered the Papercraft Junkies Challenge that I hosted. We had 34 entries which is a record for us. I have commented on every one and will now begin the very difficult decision of choosing a winner and the top 3!

This fortnight's theme is Bingo Board, simply choose a line from the board below (horizontal, vertical or diagonal) and create a project using the items in your line. Of course if you are feeling adventurous you can go for a full house and include them all!

All the usual rules apply and the winner will receive their choice of the gorgeous digi stamps in the papercraft Junkies shop. Don't forget there are Freebies which can be found HERE and the snowman stamp I used is HERE. There is also a sale on so hurry over!

So here is the board...

Here is my creation,

I started by cutting three tags on my Cameo (one pink winter paper and two kraftboard ones). I then glued the pink paper tag to a thicker craft card. I put artists spackle on the second kraft card one and, sprinkled glitter on, I put it on the radiator to dry. I cut out the snowman and decoupaged the nose , hat and scarf, which I then glossed, having coloured them with my copics. I covered the snowman with frosted lace stickles and then added Copic opaque white. I used black glossy accents for the coal. By this time the spackle tag had dried enough for me to rip it in half and then I put it back on the radiator. I cut the tiny letters on to vinyl using my cameo, and I used pearl drops for the centres of the snowflakes. The pink tag was edged with pink distress ink and the dried "Snow" tag edged with blue. The snow was stuck on the tag and three flat backed pearls added. finally I cut some netting, coloured with my copics and threaded it through the top of the tag. I didn't get a full house as I missed out on the flowers and the buttons lol!
