Color Bingo

"Little Clown Colorin'' provided by Alicia Bel

 613 Ave C's Sunday Challenge is "Color Bingo" using this Bingo card:

This is my DT project using the top horizontal line - pale blue, yellow and green.  The team has some wonderful takes on the theme... you can see them and get the details of the challenge here.

  • The base card is 5.5 x 6.25"
  • The Green mat was partially embossed with the "Large Dots" folder from Tim Holtz.  The third layer is Designer Paper from Paper House, the "Artist Paper Mix" collection.  
  • All the layers' edges were inked with  ''Antique Linen'' Distress Ink and distressed with a sharp tool. Faux stitching was added with a Micron 05 Brown ink pen to the last layer.
  • For the focal image, I used Paper Tole Technique to 3D his body: Printed 3 copies, colored them with Copics, fussy cut and 'paper sculpted' the image. The five total layers are either glued or elevated [or both] with foam tape to achieve dimension.
  • The inside uses left over scraps from the front.  The sentiment is by
    Penny Black & is stamped with my very old, faithful Versafine ink pad. 
  • Sentiment on the front is computer generated.  The sentiment and the mat were punched with Marvy Uchida punches, edges inked with the same distress Ink from above, and "Buttercup" Liquid Pearls was applied all around the edge.
  • Ribbon is from stash and the double bow was tied with a Proctor Bow Maker and the ticket ephemera is also from stash.
