Why do I never win at Bingo!!...... I'll explain

Good morning all

We have a new challenge starting at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenges

our lovely Buffy Chose the theme


and we have a new sponsor this year 


who are offering a great prize this week 

I never win at Bingo!! - mainly I think because I loose the plot and my mind wanders off and I miss numbers .... pretty much like in this challenge really.  Not a very good example to anyone who plays along with our challenge - you won't win if like me you only complete half a line!! Yellow/flowers/gems, then I've sort of got black off another line .... see what I mean I'm pretty useless lol.   To be fair it's easily put right I could stick gems on no problem - so if you can screw your eyes up and stick black gems on in your mind - it fits!

I decided that this lovely image was perfect to create a page in my art journal - it's only one side of a double page - I've yet to venture onto the facing page - but I have something floral in mind!!

This lovely image is called Phantasi 7 - I just love it!!

I used parts of the Doodlin' stencil from Sheena Douglass groovin 60's collection as I thought the shapes echoed the lovely cala lilys in her hair and also added an ornate vine and basket weave stencil for texture - I rather like the effect.
Here's what I did

Image - Phantasi 7 from Digistamps4joy
coloured with Spectrum noir blendable pencils
Background created with Sheena Douglass stencils and  inspirational words stamps sets 1 and 2
and splats and accessories set 2
Inks used - Creative expressions colourcloud and TH distress inks, stazon black ink

Hope we see you with a winning line overat Fab'n'Funky this week

A fabulous page Judith and I'll pretend the black gems are on there for the challenge, but this page is perfect just the way it is.
