My Artistic Adventure January 16th Challenge Samples.................

I was alittle behind getting this up but here it is now! Here are my samples:


For the card base which is a center step fold that I cut on my silhouette, I used red cardstock. The paper I used for the backround is from: https://www.etsy.com/shop/MyArtisticAdventures and is called Victorian Vintage Valentine's Day Shabby Pink Aqua Red Cream Chocolate Hearts Sweater Digital Paper Pack Collection Collage sheet Printable. The Bingo sheet is from the same and is called: 28 Vintage Valentine's Day Bingo Game Playing Cards Collage Sheet Printable. I attached the Bingo card on the top step, on the second step is a fancy border and the stamped cherub and heart (also arrow and Hugs & kisses words) are from Close To My Heart. The hearts on the sides are cut from spellbinder dies. everything is inked with brown ink.


The card base is made from cream cardstock and the card front is from red cardstock. The arrow cut out on the card front, are from a edge punch from Close To My Heart. White doily in the middle of card, with bingo card in middle of doily. The Bingo sheet is from the same above card collage sheet and is called: 28 Vintage Valentine's Day Bingo Game Playing Cards Collage Sheet Printable. The arrow is from Close To My heart and there are red rhinestone on the doily sides. Everything is inked in brown except the doily which I inked in red.
