The Stamp Man - Bingo card / Recipe

Take time to smell the roses.

I am soooo late with my DT piece for the Stamp Man this week but here it is at last. 

Lisa is challenging us to use this Bingo card to create something so that we can complete a line in any direction be it vertical horizontal or diagonal. 

Polka dots

I  have completed 3 lines, as you can see if there was some fabric and polka dots I would have had a full house lol.

I stamped and used the TH water brush to see what effects I could get. 
I think I need some more practice with this.

The flowers were made La Blanche style using metal and paper.

Supplies used -
Tim Holtz clock die
Distress inks - Peeled Paint, Aged Mahogany, Vintage Photo, Fired Brick, Victorian Velvet.
Distress Stains - Picket Fence; Peeled Paint
Stampendous stamp - Profile Portrait

I am hoping to get some of my photos downloaded from our wonderful trip to Paris last weekend. 
We had the most amazing time. But it's another busy few days over this weekend with friends and family and a bit of a party tomorrow night. I am still celebrating and am going to make the most of it.

I hope you have a great weekend too.
