Two Little Birdies

It's that time of the week again - another great challenge from Fab'n'Funky Challenges.  For the challenge this week we are playing bingo

I went for the top line - Handmade embellishment, Digi Image and 2 different papers.  

I used a black, white and grey stripey paper from a selection designed by Anna Stemplewska.  The designer papers are very usable and I just couldn't resist so I bought one in every colour!  Of course I used my favourite silver mirri-paper to layer the computer generated sentiment and the base layer. 

The doily started off as plain white but I couloured it with my Promarkers in Cerise and Cyan to match the colourings on the digi image, which is from one of our Challenge Sponsors.  Check out their amazing designs here.  To make the concertina folds, I cut the doily in half and then folded from the centre out to each end.  I also coloured the tops of the hat pins with the same Promarker colours.  I used the Spellbinders Labels Four to cut out the digi image.

The flowers were made from die cuts.  I used my DoCrafts flower die which I won in July last year as part of the Creativity Club Prize Draw.  I made two large flowers and a small one but they were too big so I switched it to three small flowers.  To get the perfect colour match I actually coloured a piece of super smooth paper with the Promarkers and then cut four of each colour for the pink and blue flowers.   The middle flower is made from the stripey designer paper.

Hope you can join us this week for a game of bingo.

Happy crafting,
