Anything Goes 'Bingo' challenge

Hi there, I want to say morning, but unfortunately its afternoon - today has flown by so quickly, where do the hours go? Anhow on to my card for the fab challenge over at Anything Goes which is a bingo borad. I started by choosing 3 in a row either up, down or diagonally, but by the end of my creation I'd used all of them! - So yey full house for me!!! ....or so I thought, when I had another look today I realised I didn't have any buttons, then I sen 2 pretty little button brads which I was gonna use & totally forgot! - but other than that yey full house! hahaha.

I love these challenges they give you so much scope - heres the board for you & don't forget to hop over to the challenge blog using the link above as theres some really great inspiration waiting for you...

I used Tilda with Butteryfly dress which is available from the Craft Den. Head on over there & check out the fantastic products they stock. Papers are Wild Rose Studio which I've paper pieced the dress with & I've used some bazill bascics & bling card-stock which I've made some corner embellishments, die-cut tags, swils & embossed oval behind image...


...I've mostly been inspired by the image & papers here, which I wanted to combine & the Paper Piecing element gave me perfect opportunity to. I don't seem to have used my beloved Distress Inks for ages as have been doing loads of digis with my new Copics...but DI's are DEFO my fave colouring tecnhnique. I also LOVE to paper piece, though not so much since I've had my blog (watch this space now I've remembered that one!!!) so combining my 2 fave colouring techniques was a real pleasure & love the results -that dress looks cool in those scrummy floral patterns!

Skin: Tattered Rose
Cheeks: Fired Brick
Hair: Old Paper, Frayed Burlap
Dress Trim & Shoes: Spun Sugar, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Socks: Shabby Shutters
Dress: Paper Pieced
Highlights: Sweet Pea Flower Soft

...I made the pin using pearl beads, metal spacers from an old necklase & a charm connected with little silver chain. I lOVE this effect - so pretty & elegant. I used to do it all the time ages ago, but for some reason I've done done it for ages & totally forgot about it, then the other day I happened to have the pin in my hand whilst the adhesive was drying looking for my polystirene to stand it in to dry & I picked a charm which was allready on a chain....EURIKA moment - I remembered & how efective it was!!! (love it when something so random leads to a bit of creativity!!!)


...Metal pieces holding image with ribbon are (you guesed it!) We are Memory Keepers metal hardware tin in pewter. Flowers are mainly from Wild Orcid Crafts which have also been covered in 'Sweet Pea' Flower Soft..


Gorgeous fancy tag die is my new Spellbinders purchase & even more gorgeous swirl is my new Magnolia doo hickey die (why am I so obsessed with supplies!!!) Cute little mini-alphas (which are another regular for me at the mo) by Cosmo Cricket.
