Merry Monday Bingo!


Best-laid plans and all that...I know I promised a whole bunch of new stuff, and then life. So instead I have a bunch of posts for you today, and a sinus cold. I'm almost relieved about the sinus cold, because I thought I was still suffering from TMW (too much wine)!

Merry Monday has a Bingo challenge this week - that is one of my favourite types of challenge! For my card I used the top row - Sparkle, Pattern Paper, Emboss.



Supplies: paper from Bo Bunny; PTI sentiment; Labels 5 Nesties; Versamark, Festive Berries distress ink, clear EP; Tattered Angels glimmer mists in Pearl, Candy Apple Red, Key Lime Pie; bells & twine from stash


I decided to glitz up my patterned paper with a thorough spraying of Pearl mist, and then added some splats of red & green. I used my heat gun to speed up drying so that the paper stayed more or less flat. The sentiment is heat embossed - first inking with Versamark, then Festive Berries, to get the red colour I wanted. And with this sentiment, of course I had to use bells as an embellishment!

xoxo,
Jessi
