Fall Bingo

Hi all! I have a fun craft to show you today! My children love to play games, so when I saw the cute Bingo cards from Daydream Designs I knew I had to use them! I decided to make a fun altered matchbox to keep my Bingo cards in. They are pre-colored, so all I had to do was print them off! I printed them the size of an ATC and am using buttons as our game pieces. First, I started with a plain matchbox and covered it with design paper from the paper stack Kellerkurtz & Company (which you will be seeing me use a ton!! Love it) I used Gel Medium over my brick stencil and then touched the edges with black gesso. Then for fun I dabbed bubble wrap into gesso and placed it on! I then sprayed it with Dylusions cut grass, melted chocolate, squeezed orange, and Perfect Pearls heirloom gold. The images on front are also from Daydream Designs Fall digital sets called Pumpkin Patch colored set and Falling for you Owls. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz vintage photo ink and black gesso. Then added some aged gold embossing enamel to the corner of the image. The little black bird is from Hobbycutz which I painted with black gesso and added some aged gold embossing enamel to it also. The flowers are from JoAnn's. I added bits of black and white gesso and some orange glitter glue to make it sparkle. The swirls are new from Say it in Crystals that I snatched up at JoAnn's on my last trip! :) I added two pieces of burlap ribbon that I recycled from a wedding invitation and finished off with two green brads covered in orange glitter glue. I am so glad you stopped in today and I can't wait to play this game with my children!! Be Blessed!
