STAMPlorations fun

This has  been in the works for about 2 weeks:

Supplies and notes:
  • Vintage Bingo card coated with Teresa Collins modeling paste through a Tim Holtz Stripes stencil
  • White Linen Dylusions spray over the dried modeling paste, along with some water to thin it out and remove any harsh speckling
  • STAMPlorations marigold stamp inked with Ranger Archival in Jet Black on an old Nancy Drew (don't worry: it was being discarded because it was missing pages), then fussy-cut
  • The marigolds were sprayed with Postbox Red and Pure Sunshine Dylusions sprays 
  • The sentiment was typed on an old catalog card 
  • The greenery was cut with Tim's Mini Holiday Greens set out of some scrap paper. IRL, they are much more noticeable... in the pictures they are very subtle.
  • 7 Gypsies black masking tape added a little interest to the base-- I wrestled a long time (days) with what to mount the main panel on, but nothing looked right. I think I like it now.
I plan to share this at STAMPlorations for their November Theme/Sketch (I went with the theme):

I'll also add this to the STAMPlorations AG:

  3. Hi...thanks for the recent visit! LOVE your flowers on this card...gorgeous colors!

  4. I love the warm, vibrant colors you've used for the flowers. And the neutral colored background sure makes them pop. Pretty!

  5. Mimi, it's been way too long since I paid a visit! This morning I am (not even trying) to catch up with some of my favorite people I haven't visited in a while. I saw this card and had to come by to tell you I love your use of non traditional crafting supplies decorated so brilliantly! I love the texture you put on the bingo card, and those marigolds are gorgeous colored on Nancy Drew's pages! I love to use book pages on cards and you have done it perfectly here! Big hugs and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  6. Lovely card! Love the warm colors you chose... Thanks so much for joining us at STAMPlorations! GDT- Jessica
