Sunday Stamper - Week 200 - I Got Your Number

You want to play some Bingo?

For this project I took some 5" x 7" canvas board and painted it with Dylusions acrylic paints: yellow, teal, cornflower, lagoon and white (no longer available). I then used Tim Holtz's Mixed Media Stamps by Stampers Anonymous, honeycomb and dots with lines, with yellow, lagoon and purple acrylic paints. I wasn't too happy with the effect so I used my Glimmer Mists, juniper and lemon zest. This gave it a more pleasing appearamce. I still hadn't decided on my design apart from wanting it to fit with the Sunday Stamper - Week 200 - I Got Your Number theme.
I started by stamping in black the numbers from Stuff to Say by Tin Holtz's Stampers Anonymous, then I got the idea of doing bingo cards from Tim Holtz's Lost and Found papers. I cut out the words "Bingo" twice in different colours from the paper and also cut out the various numbers available. Now I had a theme going.

I put on a Tim Holtz word stick which said "PLAY" and a Tim Holtz Idea-ology clock.  I took some Idea-ology numerals and decided to emboss them with embossing powder "eggplant" to make them fit in with the colour scheme. I finished by putting some faux screw brads in the corners. 

When I finally had my idea for a theme "Numbers" I really enjoyed myself doing this project. Well done to Hels on her 200th Sunday Stampers anniversary, how does she come up with all these ideas every Sunday?  You inspire me...


  1. I think the background turned out gorgeous Carol. This is a perfect creation for Hels' 200th challenge - I am sure she will love it - I know I do!

  2. Morning Carol, I am liking the brightness of the Dylusions dyes. MMm something more for the list!What fun you have had mixing up the stamping and the numbers! Well Done!
