BINGO with Team Lou at the Southern Girls

It's time for another challenge with us at the Southern Girls.

This fortnight Team Lou have created projects to inspire you for the new challenge

YES, we get to play BINGO together!
You need to create a project that uses three of the BINGO elements in a straight line.
It can be horizontal, vertical or diagonal.
You can use more than three elements in a row ... my card uses 7 of the 9 in the grid.

Our generous sponsor for this challenge is
Lacy Sunshine Stamps

Today I have used the absolutely fabulous Daisy Delite Sunshine Girl Pin Up digital stamp by Lacy Sunshine Stamps, our generous sponsor this fortnight.

I have used several of the BINGO lines for my card.
flowers-bling-doily and glitter-image-doily and dies-image-bling

My card is an A5 top fold using a pre-scored base.

I planned the design on my Silhouette Cameo mat, sizing the image panel and the three shades of purple matting layers.  I sized the layered doily and flourish there too.

I printed the image on X-Press It blending card, heat set, cut the panel using my Silhouette Cameo then started colouring with Copic markers. .  After the colouring was completed I added some delicate glitter sparkle to the gold clasps on both hand bags and bling to her necklace.

I cut the groovy black frame, matting layers, layered doily and flourish using my Silhouette Cameo.  I cut the sentiment using my Sizzix Big Shot.

Next came assembly.  I started by running a thin line of liquid adhesive (Tombow) along the inner panels of the frame and positioned the image panel in place.  I smothered the back of the image panel with liquid adhesive (Helmar) then put the palest purple panel in place, followed by the darker and darkest panels.  The entire panel was then adhered to the A5 card base.  I matted the inside of the card using the same sized purple panels used on the front of the card.

I used liquid adhesive (Tombow) to secure the doily layers together and topped it off with a large black rhinestone.  I used liquid adhesive (Helmar) to adhere the layered doily in place and tucked the flourish in underneath.


I used liquid adhesive (Tombow) to secure the sentiment inside the card.
